Bob Sperling, friend of Seller Accountant and owner of Abington Lane, is a supply chain and sourcing expert. Bob owns multiple successful brands and is a master of working with overseas manufacturers. This week, Tyler had a chance to sit down with Bob and discuss how important a solid sourcing relationship is for e-commerce sellers to save themselves from a supply chain headache.
- There are no shortcuts – cutting costs will never be worth eschewing trustworthy relationships with suppliers.
- Make sure all steps of your supply chain sign off on the same working samples – and have an outside entity perform your quality control.
- Demand transparency in communication with your sourcing team every step of the way.
