I’ve tried using 2 very similar services only to find out that they were funded by the very factories they were supposed to be vetting. When I found Supplier Summary I did my homework and found they were actually based in Minnesota. I called them to ask some questions and was put at ease after our conversation.
This is now an automatic part of my due diligence when choosing suppliers to work with in China. I will NOT order any products from Alibaba, Global Sources, or any other supplier site without first having Supplier Summary check them out.
I have used Supplier Summary on 3 occasions as I can say unequivocally that I now consider it an absolute necessity before I place an order with any Chinese supplier. When you consider that this service can save your business from becoming one of the horror stories you read about on importing goods from China, it is a no-brainer.
I was looking at a few factories in Shenzhen, China to make a product that I was going to sell on Amazon and Shopify. Supplier Summary literally saved me $60,000 as the report I ordered shoed that one of the factories as clearly a scam.
I would HIGHLY recommend this service to anyone looking to import products from China as it was a lifesaver for my business.
