1. What’s the most popular styles party balloon in China

The most popular type of party balloon is a latex one.

These balloons are oval in shape and are typically made out of recyclable latex. They are easily customizable by screen printing logo, text or pictures. Latex balloons are also very flexible and can be inflated by either helium or oxygen.

2. The Normal Price of Wholesale party balloon

The normal price of a simple wholesale party balloon is between $0.02 – $0.05 per balloon for orders over 1,000 pieces. For a themed 3D balloon the price is $2.50 for orders over 100 pieces. A “happy birthday” balloon chain costs on average $4 for orders over 1,000 pieces.


If you decide to wholesale party ballon, the profit you may get:

First, we randomly selected a set of party balloons from Alibaba for $2.16. The same set of balloons sold for $10.9 in Amazon. We then did the simple math of subtracting the cost of the product from the selling price as shown below.

10.9-2.16=8.74 dollars in profit

We then used the Unicorn smasherg tool to see the average monthly sales of this product which we found to be about 7394. So basically this gives us monthly returns of 8.74*7394=67623.56 dollars.

Therefore, the profits of party balloons are quite good even after deducting the transportation and packaging costs.

In addition, the sales of party balloons in most stores were relatively stable. This shows that party balloons are in high demand and have high profits.

4. Common Mistakes of party balloon Importers

One of the most common mistakes party balloon importers do is not familiarizing themselves with the import regulations of the desired country. This can lead to increased costs to the importer or to even denial of entry to the country.

Another mistake importers do is not price-matching its product to the desired country’s standards.

This will lead to two situations with the same outcome. Either the price will be too low and the manufacturer won’t earn enough money to cover the costs or the price will be too high and the buyer will choose a different product for a more reasonable price. Either way, the outcome will be the same – the importer won’t succeed.

In most cases, no license is needed when importing goods to the United States. However, for some goods being imported a special license, permit or certification may be needed. That’s why it is always best to check the requirements of federal agencies, which can be found here:
