Based on what criteria do you source suppliers?
Supplier selection is based on publicly available company information. This includes registered capital, certification, test reports, and product scope. We also apply different criteria depending on the product category and industry.
Note that we can only reflect actual market conditions. We cannot bend reality and source manufacturers that don’t exist or identify suppliers offering below market prices or MOQ requirements.
How does your sourcing process work?
Step 1: Determine supplier type
Once we receive your sourcing request we determine which type of supplier we should target. We also set our selection criteria:
- Product Scope
- ISO 9001: Yes / No / Preferred
- BSCI or Sedex: Yes / No / Preferred
- Test Reports: Yes / No / Preferred
- Registered Capital: Min XXX,XXX
- Location: City, Province, Country
Step 2: Supplier shortlist
We review suppliers on B2B supplier directories to identify 6 to 8 suppliers matching our criteria.
We cannot select suppliers based on the following criteria:
- Product design
Step 3: Supplier List (PDF) Delivered
We normally deliver the Supplier List (PDF) via email within 3 to 5 days.
What kind of information is provided in the Sourcing Report?
- Company name
- Product scope
- Registered capital
- Quality Management System (ISO 9001)
- Social Compliance (BSCI or Sedex)
- Website / Contact Page
Do you guarantee that the suppliers in the report are reliable?
Suppliers cannot be classified as consistently ‘reliable’ or ‘unreliable’. While we filter suppliers based on the selection criteria to find the most qualified companies, the outcome depends entirely on how the process as a whole is managed. There are also other supplier-related risks to be taken into consideration that can never be eliminated by our selection criteria. Here are a few examples:
- Failure to produce a satisfying product sample
- Quality issues during production
- Failure to adhere to initial quotations
- Frauds perpetrated by individual employees (e.g. payment scams)
- Supplier bankruptcy
- IP theft
Our selection is based on an assessment – which cannot reasonably predict every single outcome. Do not assume that the suppliers listed in this report are by default and in every situation ‘reliable’ or ‘quality’ suppliers.
