keyboard_arrow_right How Genuine are these Trade Enquiries? addremove

How Genuine are these Trade Enquiries?


Visitors post a large number of trade enquiries in and its associated portals everyday. Many of these are for distribution among members. Not all enquiries that we receive are, however, approved for display. Some of these enquiries are frivolous, some non-serious and some are downright fraud. 


We have been going through these trade enquiries since 1997 and this long exposure has helped us develop significant in-house knowledgebase. Through a mix of technology and human intelligence, we have developed a three-step filtering process for removing irrelevant and non-serious enquiries. 
In first level, we accept only enquiries of those products freely available for international trade. So, we do not accept trade enquiries for products whose export/import is restricted (e.g. crude oil), prohibited (e.g. weapons, drugs) or available only at exotic places (e.g. Hawaiian Noni). 
In second level, we subject every enquiry to certain technological tests (e.g. IP tracking) to check for true origin and if there's mis-match in actual and submitted data. Next, we select only those enquiries that pass a test of seriousness. Some of the parameters of seriousness are complete contact details, source, degree of articulation of requirements, checking with a negative list of not so serious buyers at our database etc. Since 1997, we have accumulated significant knowledge and expertise on Internet based trade. Some of this knowledge has been shared with readers - interested visitors may check e-commerce articles for Indian exporters manufacturers 
Finally, we filter out fraudulent proposals in the garb of trade enquiry. We regularly research on this subject and maintain an in-house collection of various frauds circulating through Internet. We have written series of articles on Internet frauds and scams
We communicate with buyer at least once before selecting his/her trade enquiry. Whenever required, we request more details as per editorial policy. We never accept an enquiry unless it passes all the three steps. 
Its true, even after all these precautions some non-serious buyers may manage to get into the system - but overwhelmingly large number of buyers in are serious and genuine. We know this from our communication with them as also feedback from members. 
Remember, conversion of a trade lead into definite export order or business transaction depends a great deal on your product, price, quality, promptness of response, communication style etc. - a whole lot of factors on which we have no control. We can create an opportunity for you, how best to utilize it - is entirely up to you.
