While the COVID-19 situation is still happening all over the world, Global Sources will not stop at anything to make sure our buyers experience efficient sourcing no matter what. We have previously mentioned the convenience and practicality of the Global Sources App, and we are here again to tell you that we provide more tools to help you maximize your sourcing journey with us! Check out these 3 Global Sources Tools created especially for you:
Signing up with Global Sources opens the gateway to a multitude of products from independently verified suppliers and manufacturers from four major verticals: Electronics, Lifestyle, Hardware and Fashion. For instance, a simple keyword search for your product of choice will lead to over 100,000 search results for all relevant items. You can also search the product according to suppliers and as “Hot Products” from our Exhibitors. Still, you might feel overwhelmed with the amount of products that you’ll see on the page. Hence, it’s key to keep an eye on the Analyst’s Choice or “AC section”. You can find this on the homepage of the Global Sources website and under the Smart Sourcing tab on the menu bar.
All the items showcased in the AC section are hand-picked by the Global Sources Analysts. Based on the quality and popularity of the product, browse to your preferred category of choice.
Only the coolest and most innovative products are awarded this coveted badge from Global Sources. With a simple mouseover, the ethos of effiicent sourcing can be seen with quick actions. Send an inquiry, directly chat to the supplier or mark it as one of your saved products. You are more likely to receive direct replies to your inquiries via chat if the supplier handling the account is online. However, all messages will be sent to the Supplier. To track all your saved items, you can simply see the save icon on the top right of the screen. The number of items you’ve Saved will appear next to it. If you’re a relatively new buyer, you would find the Analyst’s Choice to be a very convenient guide for your sourcing needs.
At 49 years old, Global Sources knows it’s not enough to just look at the products through pictures alone. From our original trade magazines titled “Asian Sources”, to the CD-ROM, shipped to all Buyers to the mobile app, enriching your sourcing journey moves towards sample order, the abilty to check on quality and production capabilities of the Verified Supplier.
Global Sources has made every effort in ensuring your sourcing is not impacted with the COVID-19. However, in many instances, the rush to fulfil backlog of orders may have come at a price to quality. Global Sources stands by the need to order a sample to ensure that the approved final product is based on a mutal agreement, that begins with the sample.
Besides, when you choose to Buy Product Samples Instantly, be assured that your purchased is backed by Paypal.
Global Sources was founded on the principles of promoting global trade. Our legacy comes from the numerous magazines printed monthly or biannually. As technology advanced, so too has the experience. Subscribe immediately to not miss out when next released.
When you’re done with the product selection and you’re ready for the next step — it’s time head to the Message Center to Request for Quotations (RFQ). You can also keep tabs on your other Inquiries and Favorite items here. If you’re a new buyer, won’t go in blind — loading the page automatically comes with a soft tutorial on how to navigate your way around this part of the website. Once you’re done with that, you can proceed on submitting an RFQ and you can accomplish this in just one minute!
Another benefit of the Message Center is that you have the option to use the same RFQ template to other suppliers if you have not received your requests in the next two days. To add to that, you can also check your RFQ Score, found on the right side of the page. The higher the score you have, the easier it is for potential suppliers to get back to you, as it means that you already know what you want from the quotation. So when you’re deciding on which products to source, be sure to take note of the details as much as you can.
To assure both our Buyers and Suppliers of the validity of this exchange, Global Sources has made the Create Legal Documents available right on the Message Center page. You can find it on the bottom right part of your screen right beside the feedback tab. Clicking on this will lead you to a legal software generator of documents specifically made for online transactions.
