-How to find reliable suppliers?

Finding reliable suppliers is crucial when importing sex toys, particularly from China, which manufactures over 70% of the world's sex toys. Once you've decided to source your products from China, you'll need to identify a trustworthy supplier.
One effective method is to use Google Search and attend industry trade shows. Enter keywords such as "Chinese sex toy factory," "sex toy wholesale from China," "adult toy OEM," "manufacturer from China," "sex toy brand," and similar phrases for your google search.
Moreover, a reliable supplier will maintain a professional sales team capable of providing detailed quotes and information regarding product certifications and features. To further assess the trustworthiness of a supplier, compare your local distributors that carry Chinese brands and examine reviews from other customers. This can help you gain in-sight into the supplier's reputation, product quality, and overall reliability.

After placing an order with that reliable supplier, you need to negotiate the shipping method with them.

All reliable suppliers should have the capacity to deliver the goods from China to your country, they may have some cooperative forwarders to arrange it, the most common shipping methods are by air, by sea, and by land, you choose the appropriate method after their quotation.

If you want to get it fast, I suggest by air;
