MOQ: (Minimum Order Quantity):
Qinghe doesn’t set up the MOQ. Qinghe understands that each customer has very different needs on quantity. Qinghe is a company that takes orders as task focus. We calculate the cost according to our customers’ specifications and quantity, and then present our best offers based on long-term cooperation hopes.
Qinghe welcomes orders of smaller quantity which can be placed regularly each year. This part of orders value can range from USD500.00 to USD10000.00.
Certainly, Qinghe welcomes orders in containers qty more. Most of our clients’ orders are in containers qty, and one single order value ranges from USD20000.00 to USD120000.00.
We suggest that one single order value be above USD500.00.
For one exporting shipment, whatever the value and the quantity are, some fees are fixed; total fees are approximately USD150.00-USD200.00. Due to the above reason, if the client’s order value is too small, say, the goods’ EX WORK price is USD300.00, then adding the fixed cost of USD200.00, the final offers will look very high. So according to our experience, if clients’ single order value is below USD500.00, we suggest that clients order from the local suppliers instead of from us. These fixed fees are as following:
Customs and port charges: USD100.00
Bank wire transfer fees: USD20.00-USD50.00
Documentation and express fees: USDUSD30.00-USD50.00
Lead time is quite different depending on specifications, quantity, and Qinghe’s manufacturing schedule. The lead time below means the time from the day we accept the order to the day the order is ready for shipping, and it does not include the shipping time.
For normal specifications with LCL (Less Container Loading) Quantity: lead time normally ranges from 15 days to 25 days.
For normal specifications with 1 x 20FCL (1 X 20feet container Loading) Quantity: lead time normally ranges from 20 days to 40 days.
For normal specifications with 2 x 20FCL (2 X 20feet container Loading) Quantity: lead time normally ranges from 25 days to 45 days.
For normal specifications with 1 x 40FCL (1 X 40feet container Loading) Quantity: lead time normally ranges from 25 days to 45 days.
For normal specifications with 2 x 40FCL (2 X 40feet container Loading) Quantity: lead time normally ranges from 30 days to 50 days.
Qinghe does not accept Credit Cards. Qinghe only accept the following two ways:
Way 1：50% by T/T to confirm the order, 50% by T/T before shipping.
95% of our orders are handled in this payment term. As for most of the orders, when Qinghe starts an order, Qinghe needs to pay full payment of the material cost. 50% of the total contract value is only part of the material cost. Qinghe also needs to invest certain amount of money to book and get the material. All of Qinghe’s quotation is based on this payment term.
Way 2: Qinghe accepts L/C at sight under certain circumstances.
In this case, an extra cost USD700 will be charged besides the order amount. The governments of some countries require that paying an overseas company must be conducted under L/C terms. Companies from these countries can only pay by L/C. If customer’s government has no restriction policy on foreign currency, Qinghe doesn’t recommend L/C payment term as most of the cost of USD700 is mainly charged by our bank. On the other hand, Qinghe will need to take a lot of time on paper works.
