Why use OSTA for your Product Sourcing needs?
People have many different reasons for using sourcing agents such as OSTA. Sourcing new products can be very time consuming, and often involved a lot of back and forth between buyers and sellers in order to negotiate price, contracts, and to ensure that a seller is able to meet the specifications required by the client.
Often hundreds of companies need to be contacted and liaised with in order to find the best one to suit your needs. Another factor is the cost of finding new suppliers. Time is money, and research does not come cheap.
To pay an in house employee a regular salary to source products for you can be very costly, not to mention the travel costs associated with traveling to and from potential sellers in order verify their details and ensure that everything progresses according to your needs.
There is also the risk factor associated with scammers and fake businesses out to steal your money, not to mention the risk involved in import export customs laws, transportation and other unpredictable factors. OSTA can offer all these services in one, to save you all the stress of carrying out this often daunting, but essential and profitable, task of product sourcing.
