Shopping in bulk is rarely easy--especially shopping for the perfect summer flip-flops. It's easy to understand why some shoppers invest on flip-flops in bulk. Not only are these foot accessories a great choice of merchandise for resale--especially during beach season, when flip-flops are in their highest demand--but they also make a great party favour.

  1. 1

    Think comfort. Like all other footwear, with flip-flops you need to invest in comfort especially when you are shopping to resell the items later. Buyers, in general, should shop for flip-flops that are comfortable and easy on the feet. Comfort should take half of the marketing required to sell the flip-flops later.

    To ensure that you are investing in comfort, shell out for quality brands. Brazilian flip-flops, such as the popular Havaianas, Braziliano Pria, Cariris and Ipanema--once endorsed by supermodel Gisele Bundchen--are known worldwide for their flexible and highly durable rubber. A good comfort test, aside from actually wearing a pair, is to give a flip-flop a "fold test." Compared with low-quality flip flops, high-quality rubber easily folds and naturally returns to its original shape.

  2. 2

    Shop for the latest style. Like shoes, flip-flops come in an array of styles, prints and colours. When shopping in bulk, buy the latest styles, whether it is a wedge collection or a flat slipper design.

    Havaianas, for instance, came up with its High collection, which became a popular flip-flop of choice among fashionistas who need a little elevation or simply want a look a bit less casual than the conventional flat flip-flops.

    Create a good colour mix by shopping a hodgepodge of interesting prints and palettes. The Crocs brand, for one, has flip-flops in bright summer colours of fuchsia and neon. Some brands are dressed up in floral, artsy or tribal prints, a few splashed in sparkling metallic colours.

  3. 3

    Compare prices. All bulk shopping require a great deal of research, especially when it comes to finding the best wholesale prices. The Internet is a great place to start. Check out the Resources list below for websites selling flip-flops in bulk and good brands to invest on.

    Apart from the benefit of low wholesale prices, shopping flip-flops in bulk also allows you to negotiate even for a much lower rate depending on your final purchase volume. Remember to haggle if you can.
