Send us a sample of your product or specifications and we will take it from there. There is no cost to you unless we are successful. Of course we cannot procure existing brand name products and we tend to stay away from very high tech products. Please call with any questions.

Q. How does Snoopit Imports control the quality of the product?

A. We work very closely with clients to understand the product specifications so we may find the right manufacturer to suit your needs.  We always procure samples prior to production to ensure quality.  In addition, we have (Chinese) employees located in China that visit the factory throughout the production process to track quality as per the specifications set forth by the client.  We are involved in the entire process from sampling, production & delivery of your product.

Q. Can I have custom printing or packaging for my product?

A. Absolutely. Most Chinese manufacturers have this capability.

Q. What are the minimum quantity requirements?

A. Quantities required vary depending on product. Over the last few years, manufacturers in China have drastically reduced the minimum quantity requirements, sometimes as low as in the hundreds of units. Depending on the product, the customer should figure a minimum order of ten to twenty thousand dollars for an initial production run once samples have been approved. Of course this is only an estimated range. For example, lower cost products can produce between 800-2000 units @ $12 per unit, higher cost products will yield a lower quantity. Typically procurement is not based on a defined dollar amount, although for these purposes and based on our experience; this is the dollar amount that is generally acceptable and desirable to a factory in China on an initial order.

Q. Can I purchase products from the sample product page?

A. No. These are only examples of prior product procurements from China. Snoopit Imports does not inventory product to sell. We procure product based on our Clients specific requests.
