ALIBABA RFQ MANAGEMENT

A request for quotation (RFQ) is a standard business process whose purpose is to invite suppliers into a bidding process to bid on specific products or services. RFQ contains detailed information about a buyer’s sourcing requirements. It is posted by the buyer and is reviewed by Alibaba.com’s industry expert before being published on the site or being matched to a suitable supplier.

RFQ PROCESS :

  • Buyer submits RFQ
  • Alibaba.com reviews RFQ
  • Suppliers submit quotations
  • Alibaba.com screens quotations
  • Buyer receives quotations
  • Trade begins

All members have the same basic quoting rights which is 20 RFQs per month. It could not be changed. To increase quoting permissions, the only way is to get more rewarding quoting rights.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN AN RFQ AND AN INQUIRY?

- Higher quality request compared with general inquiries

  • An RFQ is posted by the buyer and is reviewed by Alibaba.com’s industry experts before being published on the site or being matched to a suitable supplier. An inquiry is sent to the supplier directly by the buyer.
  • No buyer contact information is available within the RFQ (before a quote is sent), while a supplier can access the buyer’s contact information if an inquiry is sent.
  • Quotations are sent by Alibaba.com’s industry expert to buyers only after they have been approved by Alibaba.com; whereas inquiries are sent to the buyer directly.

  • In essence, you add product information, and a number of suppliers will submit quotes based on your requirements.
