What ImportDojo can do for you

Currently we have 4 staff on our Sourcing Service working around the clock to bring you the best supplier possible.

We want to keep things simple and transparent. We often get asked how much do sourcing companies charge? We came up with a solution and we are now able to offer the following new packages.

We have a database of over 1500 suppliers that we have collected working over 10 years in China. All of our suppliers have been background checked vetted and in many cases we have actually worked and placed orders with them. Anyone can go on Alibaba and get prices but what we offer are suppliers that are trustworthy, have quality products and have been checked by us many times (Note: obviously some of our suppliers also have Alibaba profiles but the point is that we have worked with them). 

Flatrate Sourcing*:

Have a product idea but can’t find a suitable supplier that you trust? Choose the flat-rate option to get to know what we can do for you and if you want to take it from there this is the best option for you. We’ll inquire with our pre-approved list of over 1500 suppliers and send you the results within 5-7 working days.

Product Development:

Have a product or design in mind but don’t know where to start? Send us your ideas and thoughts and we’ll help you to find the right supplier and also tell you if the product costs and ideas are actually feasible? We’ll start off with a “Flat Rate Sourcing” request and then move onto the development phase with you after checking initial costs for you. Inquire for more details (mail@importdojo.com)

Full Service Package:

Need help with all of the above and simply want a professional to handle your order? We call this turnkey service our  Full Service Package and we make sure you get quality products, hassle free right to your doorstep or directly to a fulfilment centre of your choice.

We often get asked how much is our Full Service but we can’t simply put a fixed price on this because it really depends on your product, the complexity of the job and many other factors. But as a general indication the price ranges from 550-800USD for new orders and 450-600$ for re-orders. Bear in mind that a full service is a process that can take sometimes over 40 days. We also offer custom & discounted prices if you want us to handle more than 1 item at a time.

Sourcing Agent:

Have more than 20 items per month and want us to handle all of your orders (up to 5) as your very own sourcing company in Asia? Choose our Sourcing Agent package.

Sample consolidation / forwarding / checking

Have more than one sample and each supplier is charging you hundreds of $? Not anymore. Instruct all of your suppliers to send the sample to us and we’ll send you one package from Hong Kong saving you hundreds of $ in the process.

General Terms and Conditions

Please read through our general terms and conditions carefully before you commit to one of our services. By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you do not have permission to access the Service. These Terms of Use describe the terms by which Import Dojo offers you access to this website and the content and services offered on it (collectively, the “Website”). By accessing our website and/or using our services you represent that you have read and understood each of the terms and conditions of these General Terms and Conditions and agree them. We do not warrant that 

a) the products sourced are free of defect, 

b) the Service will function uninterrupted, secure or available at any particular time or location; 

c) any errors or defects will be corrected; 

d) the Service is free of viruses or other harmful components;  

e) the results of using the Service will meet your requirements. 

The nature of the Service is such that you, in your sole determination, decide what product to source, where and by whom it will be manufactured when ordered, and any and all other decisions made with respect to the product. We are providing you with a Service to enable you to best make those decisions.

Sourcing results

After 5-7 working days, not including Chinese holidays, we will deliver a report with the completed shopping list.

The shopping list includes a minimum of two suppliers with the requested product, it’s minimum order quantity, price, delivery time and the contact to the supplier as well as the link to their website and their catalogue. We provide enough information in order to give you a good market overview.

Prices and conditions in the shopping list depend on the accuracy of the customers information given. Depending on the order circumstances these conditions might change on order placement if the general order conditions differ from the given conditions by the customer. 

Once the shopping list with the results is delivered to the customer the sourcing request is considered fulfilled. If the customer has any question he can reply to the delivered result and discuss directly with our staff. However no further services like sample order, product altering, change of request or change of item specification can be added to a sourcing request. If further clarification is needed in order to move closer to place the order with one of the options in the shopping list, the customer has the choice of directly approaching the suppliers or using our product development flat service.

Product Development Service

After delivering the Sourcing result, customers may choose to go ahead with a Product Development Service in case they need further clarification before they can decide to order an item. This service consists of the following main points:

Final price negotiation

Final MOQ negotiation

Final packaging negotiation and design confirmation with supplier


Changes in item specification if requested by you

Branding
Shipment offers for approximate landed calculations

Sample arrangement (Sample costs and freight excluded)

Clarification of points required by you

Order processing / Full Service

Full service package including:

Finding suppliers

Supplier verification and price negotiation

Order monitoring & Merchandising

Sample arrangement & negotiation (sample costs not included)

Arrangement of artwork/packaging including photo (120$/box if order below 3000 pieces) 

Arrangement of product text and description 

Arrangement of Inspection (to be paid extra 309$ if order below 3000 pieces) 

Arrangement of Logistics (paid extra to the logistics company)

Shipment release and after sales service

Dedicated order management by Manuel and his staff

Close monitoring of the orders and constant updates to the buyers 

Why do we still charge the flat sourcing fee in the package costs? Some buyers have source items with us and decide not to go ahead with the products we sourced which is absolutely understandable. However since we invest the time into finding and verifying suppliers we need to cover our costs too if the buyer decides to cancel the project.

Quality Control Inspection

We strongly advise never to ship without a quality inspection. We will not process shipments without scheduled inspections and not offer full service to clients who plan not to do inspections. Import Dojo cannot be held responsible for any product failure resulting of missing or wrong inspection results.
