Manufacturing & Importing: 

Manufacture My Product can help you every step of the way and we have a couple of points to have a think about before starting…

  • Minimum Numbers for most textile products is around 100 units of each style and each colour.  (Please check with us as each manufacturer has different MOQ's. Lower MOQs attract a higher price)    Within the MOQ of 100 yes we are happy to mix sizes!  (MOQ's are different for some products including but not limited to: shoes, underwear, caps, having your own fabric made for your product, shoelaces,  hair accessories, socks, scarfs, luggage and other items)

  • Think about fabrics: We have been manufacturing clothing and textiles for many years and will always make suggestions and send you samples to touch, feel and see prior to manufacturing your clothing. We will source readily available fabrics for you. With 1000's of fabric manufacturers in most countries, we have access to the best quality fabrics for your products. If you are manufacturing your own fabric the MOQ is around  400 units.

  • Having your OWN fabrics Made -   Manufacturing your own fabric is a great way to ensure you have a unique product. Have a look at and check out all the latest 'seamless patterns" there are over 52,000 of them!! If we manufacture your own fabric for you we need to do over 400 units per fabric so eg. 200 x dress & 200 x skirt = total 400 units each fabric.
  • Think about design & cuts and get as many pictures as you can. Make sure your own designs are your own. Colour, style, prints make up any part of your design. 

  • Do I need a pattern or professionally drawn designs? No, we can send you a design template which you can put drawings, photos descriptions, and information for us to be able to put together a tailored quote.  We have patterns for MOST items and if not we can create a pattern for your product.

  • Make sure you have enough funds to pay up front for the products. All manufacturers need to be paid prior to getting your stock. Our payment arrangements are generally 50% deposit paid on signing of the contract & 50% on shipment date.  We work in $US as we work across the globe. 

  • GST - Are you GST registered? You must be able to pay the GST component of the goods when they land in Australia, even if this is a hobby and you are NOT registered for GST.  Paying GST on imported goods: The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) collects GST on taxable importations. The GST payable is 10% of the value of the taxable importation.  Generally, GST is payable before the goods are released by ACBPS. If you are not registered under the deferred GST scheme then the GST is payable at the same time, at the same place, and in the same manner, as you would customs duty (or would be payable if the goods are subject to customs duty).   This is the ATO Australian Government link GST and Importing 
  • Duty - Customs  - all goods imported into Australia by sea, air or post with a customs value that exceeds $1000.00 must be cleared by submitting a completed import declaration form (B650) and paying duty, goods and services tax (GST) and other taxes and charges that apply. As Guestimate, we normally allow about 5% of the total cost of Duty. Please ensure you get a quote from our Customs & Transport Agent and know the exact amount of your Customs prior to shipping.   This is the Australia Border Government Website in relation to paying duty.

  •  Timing: From quoting to getting your goods I would allow 3 to 4 months (12 to 16 weeks). Once the contract is signed it is  60-90 days from samples to shipping (then allow 3-6 weeks for shipping from the manufacturing country to your location)

 Q: How does shipping and transport work?
