Hello, Hope you are doing ok! I am looking for a Chinese based assistant for the following tasks. Short story : I have placed an order with a supplier and paid 30% deposit. The communication with the factory was excellent however once I transferred the money the sales rep has become very passive, she does not reply to my emails and so on. I sent them the money 2 weeks ago (and emailed the bank confirmation) and since I had only 1 email from the sales rep and she said that the mass production has been started. I am not entirely sure whether is true or not and why it was delayed a week but things have got so slow from her side. I can’t afford more delays on these products because I want them to be ready for Q4. Also I need some more details about box sizes and packaging. So I need somebody in China who would be able to contact the factory and speed things up, get another sales rep if needed and we need to get the information we need as quick as possible because I will have to schedule these items for shipping with other products from another factory. Following tasks need to be taking care of : - Get contact with factory and ask for required product details such as product dimensions, packaging details, carton dimensions and weight. I have the details of the main product however I ordered other items with smaller quantities. - The production time they asked was 45 days. We need to make sure that they can deliver the products within this time frame. - They put inserts in our main product with our logo and some texts on it but they need to send me the layout or format of the insert. Or just the size, for instance A4 paper or A5 or whatever. - I will arrange an inspection for the goods before shipping so I need a contact detail which I can pass to the inspection company - Speed things up. The assistant needs to call them every week to make sure production is going ahead. - To support any communication between me and the supplier I reckon it is about about a 15 hour job in total and mainly talking on the phone with the supplier and emailing with me and the supplier. The aim is to speed things up. Hope you can arrange somebody with a reasonable price tag. Thank you Regards Norbert

Dear Freelancer, I am looking for an experienced, professional and communicative China sourcer to help me with the sourcing of two products. We are a growing e-Commerce business currently selling many products in the USA and Europe and we are in the process of launching 15+ in order to expand our offer. We have been trying to source these two products ourselves but it has proven a bit difficult to obtain appropriate responses. As our liaison or representative, you will be given detailed requirements of everything we want, from product features to packaging and inserts and supplier's criteria (years in business, must be a factory, etc). You would need then contact different suppliers that fit these criteria and request the information we need in order to make a good decision. We would need you to find and help us select the best supplier for these products including samples preparation and final decision and factory checks. Once we have chosen together the best supplier and we decide to do mass production we can then take it from there and continue the process ourselves. Fluent English and Chinese is a must since we need someone that speaks our potential suppliers' language and can also communicate with us easily. Experience in sourcing in China is essential since after 2 years selling we know that there are some tricks, particularities and certain standards or common practices that apply and understanding them is a huge competitive advantage. We are a serious company with a big pipeline of products to launch so we are always looking for long-standing business relationships. We also belong to many sellers networks so we can always recommend you for future work. Please only apply if you fit this criteria and if you are happy to communicate, discuss and to build a long term relationship. We are looking forward to seeing your application! Many thanks, Marisa.

What I would like for someone to help me with is : 1. to break down each part of the contract and make sure I don't miss a thing. 2. Simply tell me what I need and put it together in the format requested by the client 3. Make my bid proposal stand out among competitors 4. Calculate bid amounts and based on location and industry standards and input for price. 5. Suggest things I may need to obtain to make more competitive or to proceed with business at all. Most or all of the things needed (insurance cert, references, janitorial history, etc) I can obtain and provide. For things I may have trouble getting or don't already have, I need you to tell me some places I can get them from. I attached the contract below so that you can go through it. I am not sure how much people pay for these types of things so I place the price here. My website: www.jkpropertymanagement.net
