The 6C Suppliers offers all the info you needed to judge whether the company is a suitable partner. Your valuable time would be saved to create more wealth elsewhere.

Case study

Mr Ashwin from Australia, one of Platform members, regards highly of the 6C Suppliers. “ I trust the 6C suppliers that eGTCP has recommended. They’re very good Chinese suppliers and I no longer worry about trade risks.”

6C suppliers have a special icon

He has first-hand experience dealing with risky suppliers and eGTCP platform helped him avoid huge losses through our Credit Inquiry.

Back in Oct. 2017, one supplier from Guangdong Province approached him through social media. He selected some of the models and asked for quotation. The price was very good. Indeed too good, much lower than the usual price. The supplier also accepts payment of 20% deposit, 80% against B/L.

At that time, Mr Ashwin also learned about platform’s new feature--Free Credit Report on Chinese Companies through our staff. He decided to trust us to investigate the suppliers.

The outcome shocked him. Credit report said that it was a small factory with less than 5 employees. It is also on the black list of companies with abnormal operation. Further investigation shows that it was a bait company which lures the buyer with extra-low price to scam for deposit. After receiving the deposit, would just disappear.

The previous buyer who fell for this scam would find that it is quite costly to appeal to court. It’s probably a waste of more time and money to file a lawsuit against this supplier. They would have to swallow the bitter lesson and sharpen their eyes next time.

Lucky for Mr Ashwin, he has saved a lot of time and realized that the Platform was a true partner for his trade in China.  Through the 6C Supplier Recommendation, he soon found a quality supplier from Zhejiang Province and planed to place orders with the company.

He also intends to use the Platform’s other services like loading monitor and trade assurance to ensure that everything goes smoothly as expected.
