If one of our experts sources your product, you will get better prices than you could get on Alibaba. We have years of negotiation experience in the Chinese market. On top of that, we get quoted 'Chinese prices' that are lower then 'Western prices'.
That said, usually Alibaba suppliers also put out "bait prices".
These are low prices to catch your intrest and get you exited. Then.. after dealing with them for days or even weeks, they change that initial agreement with excuses like:
"we quoted the wrong price",
"we no longer have that product available but a great (more expensive) alternative",
"the prices changed",
"the price you saw was for a different variation"
There are also products specificially made for either the chinese market or the western market. They might look similar from the outside but the quality can be dramatically different. We make sure you get the best price for the quality you are looking for.
Obviously we are biased.
However, if you have sourced in China before you have propably encountered some of the excuses and problems above. As we are local, and speak the language, and it is our specialty, it is much easyer for us to navigate those problems and deliver you better result then you were able to get on your own.
We like to work as part of your team.
