How do I go about contacting suppliers and convincing them to redesign their product for me?
This seems a large outlay of time and effort for them with no guarantee I would buy their product especially when I've not done this before obviously I wouldn't state this.
So why would they agree to do it?
The ideal situation would look like this:
I request customization > they agree to redesign the product > once complete they send samples for me to test > I order lowest possible quantity
Is this a realistic scenario?
Is it normal for manufactures to request a cost from me for redesign/upgrade?
Or perhaps would they insist I put down a deposit on an order before commencing design work? How does this usually work?
Thanks in advance!
