Why do you need a purchase agent for medical device in China?
It is not easy for a foreigner to work directly with a qualified factory in China due to the language culture and MOQ barriers etc sometimes. There are lots of ‘fake’ factories online, 90% of the suppliers you met online or at local trade fairs might be a typical trade company or even scammers in China but you’re never aware of it. The reason is very simple, on the one hand, more than 80% of real factories still do not have their own Export License, on the other hand, there are NOT enough good English speaking staff working with small-mid scale factories in China at present. According to the verification results, 90% of the suppliers they verified turned to be a trade company in China but online they pretended to be a real factory and the clients cannot tell them from the fake information online.
Purchasing agent (buying office) service is becoming more and more popular and important for global importers. A good one-stop purchasing agent service can not only reduce the risks in their business in China but also save them lot of time, cost and energy etc in souricing, verification, quality control and after-sale services etc. This 'Buying Office' service is catered for those clients who intend to outsource their 'procurement department' in order to reduce the cost in Europe and other developed countries. You do not need your own procurement office or procurement team at your end if you have a qualified service team from China.
A well-qualified purchasing agent can act as your own Office, Assistants and Eyes etc in China and they can solve all the issues regarding your import. They may help you smooth every step in following aspects in China in person:
1.Sourcing new suppliers or factories;
3.Factory auditing,it is most import thing for the medical device factories to have good quality management system according to ISO13485,QSR820 etc;
6.Formal contract documentation support;
7.Inspection before shipment
8.Shipment arrangement, (Logistics)
9.On-going management of suppliers
10.After-sale Service support;
A good purchasing agent service can benefit you much more from following two points:
1. A trade company will protect their own interests at any time during the business in China. They will not allow the clients to buy directly from their verified factories. They will 'buy' from the factories and add their own profit, then 'resell' the products to the clients worldwide, the profit of trade companies is normally 10 – 50% against invoice value in China, varied in different products. While a purchasing agent service will simply act as their client’s own 'assistants, office and eyes 'etc in China, purchasing agent service will protect the customers' interests from the beginning to the end during any business activities in China. All the service charges are fixed and transparent and the commission for service. The client is free to contact the factories for any question related.
2. Trade companies normally do not have their own team of quality control inspectors, factory auditors and buyers etc. We have a team of professional quality control inspectors, auditors, buyers and lawyers etc in China ;
If you’re now still working with a trade company, then you're suggested to work with a professional buying office now.
