Purchasing cheap products


We all know that the cost of the product is directly related to the quality. But not all the time because new products tend to sell at a lower price in order to acquire customers. However, the purchasing officer should have the confidence of trying out the new products before ordering by bulk especially when the product is imported and there is a minimum order.


For the purchasing officer, the cheaper products are the usual target but I know some purchasing officers who are focused more on the quality and not the cost. At the outset it is difficult to understand why he will purchase products that are more expensive especially when the competing products are on sale. But there is wisdom when it comes to the quality of the products.
