Request for Quotation (RFQ)

What happens after the report is delivered?

Once the report is delivered you must engage directly with the supplier to clarify any remaining questions regarding prices, specifications, MOQs or other related matters. Note that we don’t manage ongoing communication with the suppliers as part of this service.

Do you protect our brand, designs or other IP?

You should only share files with us that we can share with the suppliers in order to request their feedback or get price quotations. We don’t act as a guarantor or offer any form of compensation in case a manufacturer – involved in the process or not – uses your brand, product design or other elements of your product.

You must obtain proper business insurance, register trademarks, and patents (if applicable) to protect your business.

Do you offer any guarantees or warranties?

No, we don’t offer any form of insurance or compensation in case of quality issues, defects, delays or situation resulting in losses. We don’t represent the manufacturers we identify.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

No, we don’t offer a money-back guarantee as this is a service, not a product. Notice that we cannot guarantee that the suppliers or prices will match your expectations, as we can only reflect actual market conditions.
