Will Alibaba manufacturer also design a custom box/package for your product? Or is that something you will have to have done elsewhere? Of course, once your product is shipped from Alibaba to Amazon, you want the product sold to your customers in your own customized box? Who will be responsible for that?

Basically, I have a custom design that I got from Fiverr, who do I send this design file to have my custom boxes printed and product placed in those box and shipped.

Unless you order in large volume the supplier usually wont customize box packaging for you as it cost extra money and time. If you order in large volume in one time you may have stock pressure. 

 

Actually besides the supplier you can also ask help for the Chinese shipping agent who could help you customize the box design with smaller fee. If your have enough budget you can customize the box directly, else you can customize some stickers to save money while it has the same effects. Once you found an agent to help you, send him the box design files and explain your requirement in details, then they will help you contact a printing factory to make one sample, after you confirmed the sample the factory will printing the rest. Since it is customized box, the printing factory usually have minimum 500 to 1000 MOQ and the price isnt cheap compared to normal boxes. You should think more and negotiate with agent for a better solution.

hi!

Normally suppliers usually won't  customize box packaging for you as it cost extra money and time. i think the best thing is to ask a shipping agent who can help you customize the box design with smaller fee, else you can  customize some stickers to save money while it has the same effects once. you see agent to help you, you can send him /her the box design files & explain to him/her your requirement.. with that you should be able to negotiate better with the agent..

Hi @azecommerce 

We recommend looking for any private label suppliers instead of Alibaba.

There are 2 ways to custom box packaging, If you met the MOQ of the supplier goods, they usually help you custom box packaging, for example, when you planning to sell a juicer on Amazon, you can ask Alibaba supplier to customize logo on the juicer with a custom box packaging, they usually need a 300 to 500 pcs moq.

If also can be done via Chinese 3PL agent service who offer custom packaging service, you can send the box packaging design with the size and box material, they help you inquire to pay a prototype fee and box moq for customization.
