Q: What information do I need to provide for my own ePS?
  A:
You will need to present 1) your company data in Powerpoint (as mentioned earlier, with company info, market share, development plan, etc.). This should be presented in an easy-to-understand way for people to appreciate the power and scale of your company; and 2) the product(s) you would like to source in the coming 2 months (since ePS needs at least a week’s time to put up your website, plus at least two weeks to source, and you need some time to screen, too). To initiate each sourcing case, please provide complete product names, photos, and product specifications, applications, size, material, model, drawing, etc.), as well as quality standards requirements, intended buying quantity or US$ value, shipment & payment conditions, etc. In short, the more concrete and clear the information you provide, the more you can attract serious Taiwan suppliers to commit to your sourcing needs.


Q: Is it safe to post our procurement requests on ePS?
  A:
Your eProcurement Site will be accessible to you, Taiwantrade, and the potential Taiwan suppliers only. Since Taiwantrade will be sourcing on your behalf, we will post your procurement needs on the website, and authorize selected Taiwan suppliers who can produce your requirements to have access to your ePS. No other companies or individuals will be informed of your procurement requests.


Q: How can the selected suppliers access our ePS website to view our requests?
  A:
The selected potential suppliers will receive an email notification from us, and will be asked to join Taiwantrade to receive the password for your procurement site access. If they think they are capable and interested enough to explore this opportunity, they will register their company details on the website.


Q: When can we find out about the selected suppliers?
  A:
Based on your criteria and requirements, suppliers will be contacted for confirmation. Once we've screened out unqualified suppliers, we will report to you with a list of Taiwan potential suppliers' profiles. Meanwhile, the selected suppliers will be provided with your contact information. Taiwantrade's sourcing tasks end here, and it will be your turn to contact them directly for further evaluation and negotiation.


Q: Is it mandatory to involve our CEO in this program?
  A:
No, it's not mandatory. The whole sourcing program is very practical, and will need only the buying manager, who has the power to make the final decision over this project.

For other information, please contact our headquarter, or contact our local TTC office today.
