Frequently Asked Questions

No, all three packages available are geared to take our customers product from A-Z, from sourcing to delivering the product to your door or what we call ”Product to Market” process.

Not a problem, Easy Imex can take over, or manage your supplier, however our fees remain the same in this scenario.

Easy Imex has built up a highly experienced team and developed processes with the simple aim of adding value. Our services are focused on getting the best possible price for the right quality, as well as, taking away the time and hassle to source and develop new products.

In simple terms, this is what we charge for our time before placing an order for mass production. Sourcing the right manufacture, comparing the market, developing and signing off on a final sample, all typically takes between 2 weeks to 2 months.

At Easy Imex we know that good results require a lot of work and diligence pre production and frankly, we can not do this level of work for free for any business that wants the benefits of the services Easy Imex offers.

No! Basic and Premium Packages are a one time fee and the Product Development is a monthly fee.

If you’re a start up, small company or if your business only requires a handful of products and you’re importing less than $100,000 USD per year, then the Basic Sourcing is for you!

If your business either requires sourcing/development for more than 10 products and/or you’re looking to import more than $100,000 per year then we recommend the Premium Sourcing. While there is a higher upfront fee, there is no service charge for factory audits and quality control inspections, and no limit placed on your product sourcing requirements.

Easy Imex has been established for over 15 years and featured in various media sources such as NBC, Fox News and PR Web. From our YouTube channel, you will find a number of our client testimonials and we are also happy to provide references. If you’re new to working with China, we welcome you to visit us in Shanghai!

We require at least $5,000 USD for your total order value to make sure we can work directly with the most suitable manufacturers. We can then meet the Minimum Order Quantities and set up the right payment terms for our clients.

For the Basic Sourcing Package, we will source up to 10 products per year. Five additional products can be requested for a charge of $150 USD.

This is a common misconception. For various reasons, Easy Imex can often supply a lower price to a customer, our on the ground team are highly experienced at negotiating with Chinese manufactures, can purchase in RMB, source manufactures who do not have an export license or an English-speaking sales department, and as such we have more/different choices to buy from.

All members must import at least $20,000 USD per year in order to keep their membership active the following year. 

Finding a supplier that can meet on both price and quality requirements, understanding what your business needs and delivering the results, ongoing re-sourcing, vendor & inventory managements, purchasing contracts exchange rate fluctuations and generally establishing and managing your China supply chain. Easy Imex acts as a buying office for your business fighting for YOUR interests in China.

If we do not feel that China is the optimal place to have your product produced, we will let you know from the outset. We are confident in our team to get the best results; if we cannot keep our promise then we are happy to offer a refund of the initial fee.

Easy Imex works exclusively with manufactures based in mainland China. We work with manufactures all over China. These can be small factories from 10 people, to state owned & stock market listed manufactures employing 20,000 people or more.

Sourcing done ‘badly’ can be done in less than 30 seconds with a quick Google/Alibaba search. Our process requires that Easy Imex staff take various steps in our sourcing process. Typically, sourcing can take us around two weeks. If we are also developing and Quality Assuring the sample before production, then expect anything from 2 weeks to 2 months before we can go into production.

You may only request for a refund IF Easy Imex has not found a price which is 3% cheaper than what you initially had for the same product and specifications.

From the point an order is placed, typically it will take a manufacture 30 days to produce (a lead-time of 30 days) once finished, Easy Imex then needs to carry out a Pre Shipment Inspection Quality Check.

From there, we then will arrange the export of your order. From placing an order to shipping typically is around 5 weeks.

Depending on where you are in the world, shipping to your local port from most major ports in China can take between 2 – 6 weeks ‘on the water’.

Finally, once the goods arrive in your country, they will have to clear customs before being delivered. This can take anything from 1 – 2 weeks.

As such, a collective time scale from placing your order to receiving stock can be anything from 8 – 14 weeks.
