 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What is a RFS - Request For Suppliers?

RFS is a special solution made by VietFactory for professional buyers who want to find their Vietnamese suppliers easier and faster. In this special section, professional buyers can post their product details and requirements to look for Vietnamese suppliers.

Please take a look at Our RFS Post Page for examples.

2. What are the benefits of posting a RFS?

RFS allows you to post your requirements. Once posted, suppliers that see the RFS and believe they can meet your requirements can apply to be your suppliers.

In addition, the VietFactory team will carefully review your requirements and search for suppliers across all of Vietnam.

Within 2-3 weeks, our sourcing experts in Vietnam will match you with an additional 3 potential suppliers who are able to meet your specifications.

3. How can I create a RFS?

First, you can complete the checkout for the RFS and then you will receive a form to fill your information of product specifications and supplier requirements.

4. What does a standard RFS look like?

A standard RFS includes these information:

  1. Company name: (reveal or hide based on your privacy)
  2. Product: (name of the product you want to source)
  3. Potential purchase volume: (in quantity or value)
  4. Specifications: (details of your product)
  5. Special requirements: (certifications or facilities, abilities suppliers need to meet)
  6. Additional notes: (your preference)
  7. Example photos: (attach 3-5 photos to demonstrate the product)

5. How long does it take to see the results?

In our standard time, you will have a list of 3 potential suppliers in 2-3 weeks. After you post your Request For Suppliers, our team will start searching for suitable suppliers and contacting them.

Please note that Vietnam is not like China where we can get many quotations after 24 hours because there are so many suppliers there. In Vietnam we have to proactively search for them, contact them and communicate with them to qualify.

Our team of Vietnamese sourcing experts can do a great job finding them because they are local, they have networks and there is no language barrier.

6. Who can respond to my RFS?

Your potential suppliers must come from 2 sources:

  1. Verified suppliers on VietFactory.
  2. New suppliers (not on VietFactory yet) found by our sourcing experts base on your requirements
    VietFactory will forward their messages and keep you updated on the status of your RFS.

7. Will I get an invoice/receipt for my subscription?

Yes, you will receive a receipt for your subscription each month, which is very useful for accounting or reimbursement purposes.

8. Is there any additional cost?

No. There is only the monthly cost per product for RFS posts. We do not charge any other costs (like taking a percentage of the sales value) in the future.

9. Why is RFS a monthly subscription, not a one-time flat fee?

The RFS is a monthly subscription because as long as it is on the VietFactory site, it stays live and then every month you choose to keep it up means that new suppliers can contact you. So you can have even more backup suppliers.

In addition, with more and more suppliers coming online and new factories being developed as Vietnam’s manufacturing continues to expand with new qualified manufacturers being able to do it. We find that a lot of our buyers keep it up because they can get consistent backups, to make sure that they can have good quality, diversity in the supply with competitive costs over the long term.

Most people keep it going month by month because you want to know of a new supplier and backups and to have factories competing to become your suppliers.

But at any time, if you feel like your first supplier is good enough or you don’t want any additional backup suppliers, you can cancel the RFS post.

10. Can I cancel my subscription anytime?

Yes. You can cancel the subscription anytime at your preference. If you have found your suppliers or see it is not working for your case, please cancel and give us feedback.

11. Can I create a RFS for 2 or more products?

A single Request For Suppliers (RFS) post is for 1 product category. Because a RFS needs to be very clear on specification and details for Vietnamese Manufacturers to understand your needs.

Therefore if you make a certain product or product category in various shapes, colors and styles, that still counts as 1 product category.

However, if you have more than 1 product category, you can have several RFS and that will lead to better results.

12. Can I communicate with suppliers directly or through VietFactory?

Yes. The mission of VietFactory is to empower international buyers and Vietnamese factories to communicate with each other directly. Because we want you to own the supplier relationships you build. And also we are not middle men, we don’t take a percentage so that will be better if you communicate directly with suppliers.

13. Does VietFactory have additional services like quotation, sampling, QC, vetting suppliers, etc?

Yes. We do have different solutions:

VietFactory Unlimited Sourcing Services ($999/month)

We will work like your Rep Office in Vietnam to handle sourcing, quotations, samples, local production, vetting suppliers, etc. It’s like having your own staff based out of Vietnam helping you through everything.

14. How can I check out?

Checkout is included on the next page, we utilize Stripe to accept credit cards, debit cards, mobile wallets and more.

Stripe is a payment processor that follows the most stringent level certifications with the best in class security and high level practice.

Please use the email you signed up for your Buyer account to check out.

15. Can I hide my corporate identity on my RFS?

Yes. We understand that there are reasons for buyers to hide their identities when sourcing. When we publish the RFS, you can choose to hide your company name and replace it with company type and country. For example, instead of Apple, you can put “An electronics company from USA”.

In our experience, we find that Vietnamese suppliers like to see company names in the RFS. However, it is not required.

16. How can I protect my design when posting example photos?

In this case, please use the most similar photos or copy images to demonstrate your products. The RFS’s objective is to find a suitable supplier that may be capable of producing your product.

Only after you find a potential supplier that is able to produce your products, can you privately communicate with them to disclose any designs or specific photos if needed.

17. How much does an RFS cost?

A RFS costs $99/month and can be canceled anytime.

18. How will I be notified and communicate with suppliers?

Once the RFS is posted, suppliers can apply and those will be forwarded to your email. On top of that, after 2-3 weeks, after our sourcing experts search across Vietnam and find 3 potential suppliers for you, those suppliers will be presented to you by email with company information, brief profile and points of contact. And then you can communicate with those suppliers directly via email or the platform.
