Jingsourcing assists with product certs and inspection
Contact TIC companies for relevant certificates
For the products purchased by our clients, we will check the required product certificates and documents for international trade and sales in the target market. We will select suppliers in our database who have these product certificates. For some products that require certification, we will contact these professional and authoritative inspection agencies to help test the products and get related reports.
Offer flexible quality control services
In most cases, third-party inspection companies only report failed or passed. Compared to these companies, large and professional sourcing agencies like Jingsourcing can provide flexible inspection services including:
Inspect the product based on your focus
We have our own warehouse and professional staff to provide quality control service according to your requirements. We will do a general inspection of your products according to the AQL sampling inspection like 3rd party testing agencies. If you have strict requirements for product quality and want to reduce the defect rate to 0%, you can choose our full inspection service.
Before the inspection, we will communicate with you to understand your requirements and focus points. If you want to check whether there are scratches on the leather surface or any workmanship issues such as crooked stitching lines or defects on hardware, we will not count some small defects such as wrinkles or curled edges into defective rates. As you can see, we can improve the efficiency of quality inspection.
Communicate with you timely when inspecting
We will send you a video when inspecting. For each defect found, we will communicate with you in real time and ask if you accept it. If you have any additional requirements during the inspection, such as drop testing for product packaging, it is also acceptable.
Charge a lower fee and provide a follow-up guarantee
We charge $40 per person per day. Even for a full inspection, our rate is only $5 per hour, which is much lower than inspection companies who usually charge $200-300 per person per day.
In addition, if you use the suppliers we select and buy products from them, we not only offer free replacement of defective products during the inspection but also provide follow-up guarantee services.
That is, if you find any defects in the products within 15 days of receipt and provide evidence, we will replace or compensate you for free. If you have your own suppliers, we will communicate with them until the problem is resolved, but you need to pay for the logistics costs, traveling fees, etc.
