Finding the perfect manufacturer can be exhausting – for that reason, you can count on Sqetch to save your money and time and help you find a suitable manufacturer or service provider in a few clicks.
How it Works?
We’ve prepared a tutorial guide to explain everything to you. Let’s check it out:
1. Sign Up
Sqetch makes signing up easy. Only an email is required, and once signed up you can begin to create a project.
2. Create a Project
Your first step is to search for a manufacturer right from the Sqetch website.
Select the type of product you are looking to produce. Then define your specifications such as the number of styles, quantity and the type of service.
You can enhance your search by selecting advanced options based on the type of supplier, country, certifications and associations.
Sqetch will then populate a list of possible manufacturers for a perfect match.
3. Review Search Results
Sqetch will provide you with a list of possible manufacturers based on your search criteria.
Important: We suggest you go through the manufacturers’ profiles to learn more about their speciality and services in detail.
Our Trusted partners of Sqetch (e.g. Gold, Silver, or Bronze members) rank higher in our search results while complimenting your search criteria in our platform’s algorithm. Ranked trusted partners not only have gained our trust but also the trust of brands who worked with them in the past.
Each manufacturer specifies their profile conditions such as price, type of service and minimum order requirements. After selecting the manufacturers you want to work with, you can directly send them a request/inquiry for your order (RFQ).
Important: On our platform, you can also send the same quote to multiple manufacturers and the process is similar – you just need to click on “quote multiple manufacturers.”
Either choosing to get a quote from multiple manufacturers or a specific manufacturer you’ll then be asked to provide further details of your request, including the opportunity to upload relevant images for your project.
Don’t forget to review the information before submitting your request.
Ah don’t stress out if you are not sure about the exact value (eg. MOQ or budget) – you can always use an approximate value and discuss details with your manufacturer right on the platform.
