  1. Quality

Quality of the product one is selling plays an important deciding factor in whether the product would be sold in the market or not and how much profit one would get from the product. A bad quality product can lead to the business facing large losses rather than profit and could drive away customers for some time. If the quality is so bad that the product gets banned from the market due to backlash from the customers might lead to more troubles for the company. Hence it becomes crucial for the organization to have a sample product made by the contract manufacturers or test a product that they have made before reaching an agreement with the manufacturer since the quality of the product shows badly on the company.
