The topic of cost in business dealings can be a complex one. Many companies choose to hide behind vague answers such as “it depends,” but that’s not our approach. We believe in transparency, and we often face questions about our pricing model, which differs from the conventional market practices. You might be wondering how we make money and why we charge differently. In this article, we’ll clarify our pricing strategy and the reasons behind it.

How We Charge:

We keep things simple. Instead of taking a percentage of the order volume, we charge for our services by the minute or hour. This approach raises the inevitable question: “Why do you do things differently from the rest of the market?” The answer lies in our commitment to being 100% open, honest, and transparent in everything we do.

Aligning with Our Values:

Our goal is to source products for our customers the same way we source products for ourselves. As brand owners with our own brands, we have a vested interest in finding the best prices and the most suitable suppliers. This commitment to shared values is what sets us apart.

The Percentage-Based Charging:

Charging a percentage of the order volume can lead to potential conflicts of interest. If our revenue is tied to the order value, we might be less motivated to seek the lowest possible prices for our customers. After all, the higher the product’s price, the more revenue we would earn.

Similarly, if we were to charge a percentage, we might be tempted to streamline our efforts and provide fewer quotations to minimize our workload. This approach wouldn’t serve your best interests as it could result in fewer options for you to choose from.

Our Commitment to Transparency:

Our purpose is to find as many quotations as reasonably possible and to compare prices to secure the best deals for you. We don’t just share the time spent on your project; we also provide you with all the contact details of potential producers, whether they were part of our initial search or were involved in the sampling or final production.

This level of transparency empowers you to contact these suppliers directly, place reorders, and manage your business independently. You’re not obliged to come back to us for reorders, and there are no additional charges for doing so.

The Importance of Supplier Transparency:

We understand that clarity is crucial when it comes to your suppliers. You should always know who your real supplier is and have the option to reach out to them whenever necessary. We’re here to help with additional services such as packaging, certificates, and licensing, but we don’t take a percentage of your order volume.

Putting You in Control:

Our pricing model is designed to give you full access to information, pricing details, and supplier contact information. You can compare all the options available to you, including our services’ costs and the time required for the work. This approach aligns with our commitment to being open, honest, and transparent.


Our unique pricing model reflects our dedication to aligning our interests with yours, ensuring you get the best deals without hidden fees or conflicts of interest. We want to offer you the same level of transparency and service that we would expect for ourselves.
