Product development comes from a deep need to solve problems in the market.

We break the product development process into two phases.

In Phase 1 we ask you for your statement of work and all the materials you have prepared so far. We will work together with your team to identify the most suitable manufacturing solution for you.

In Phase 2 we leverage our network of reliable and experienced manufacturers to support your product development. We provide design, prototype, sampling, custom moulding, material suggestions, quotations, production management, quality control, and so much more.

We offer a full ‘white glove’ service for Private Label Accessories and Technology products. All you need to do is: find a product online, send us a link, we will source a high quality supplier for far cheaper than you can find on Alibaba. Read more about the details of our private label services on our dedicated page here: Private Label

Default packaging varies from product to product and between factories. If you would like to customize or create packaging from scratch, we partner with packaging suppliers that can provide full stack packaging services with all sorts of materials.

Of course you can! But…

  1. It’s more expensive,
  2. It’s only worth it if you want 1 or 2 products,
  3. You’ll be using your own time to talk to suppliers,
  4. And many more reasons…

Yes! We can provide packaging and labelling services to fulfil your amazon FBA needs. You will not need to lift a finger or even see your products, as they will come through our facility and sent straight out to Amazon warehouses around the world.

Yes! If you are planning to order many products, we will organise all of them to be sent to our facility in Shenzhen. We will consolidate and bundle the products together and ship them as one large order. This consolidation can help save you significant costs on air and/or sea freight.

Our team has over 20 years of experience in sourcing and product development in China. We have curated a failproof and comprehensive method to search for suppliers.

We always start a search by contacting our network and asking our colleagues, friends, and other contacts in the industry…

The world of tech products is not as big as you may believe, and the degrees of separation are far fewer than you may think.

After searching our network, we will then search online on local sourcing platforms. This is to check the market and understand your product’s position moving forward.

Yes! We offer a light-touch, soft landing approach to product design. Our in-house design team that specialises in product development can work together with your design department. We are here to make your life as easy as possible, so that your ideas can come to life quickly, affordably and to your exact specifications.

We have extensive experience working with many different 3D CAD software, including SolidWorks, AutoCAD, SketchUp, and Inventor, which we use to develop moulds, create PCBs and provide 3D layouts of products.

Yes! This Prototyping will be done in cooperation with the vetted factory of your choice. If throughout the prototyping process you need to create custom moulds, upload bespoke software, or anything else, the team of engineers will have all the information and materials that they need in order to fulfil the final order.

We can also create mould mockups using our 3D printers.

We have an NDA template that we can ask the factories to sign, which always provides you with piece of mind.

If you are particularly worried about protecting your IP, then we can split production between multiple factories, so that the entire production process is not under one roof. If you would like to learn more about our thoughts on protecting IP, please read my blog post about it here…

The MOQ is dependent on the product that is being sourced and whether it exists yet. If a product is sitting in a warehouse somewhere then the MOQ is normally quite negotiable. If the product is not in stock or has not been manufactured yet, then the MOQ can vary depending on the price of the product.

Over the years we have been able to develop a system that ensures we maintain an excellent quality level.

We start by deeply understanding how a product is made and the materials it is made from. This is to ensure that you aren’t getting BS’d or conned by anyone. If you know the ins and the outs of a product then you know exactly where corners are being cut and if it lacks components.

We conduct deep research and understand the suppliers.

We always require a pre-production and post-production sample, which we can compare with one another.

Before the shipment is sent to you, we always insist on a 3rd party inspection to go and inspect the goods. They will produce an extensive report on what was found and what will be expected in the final shipment.

As a failsafe, we always negotiate a minimum unconditional one-year guarantee on any product that we order.

We have three different payment terms for different situations.

  1. For small orders and samples: 100% payment, typically if the cost is below $1000.
  2. The most common amount: 30% deposit pre-manufacture and 70% balance pre-shipment of the goods.
  3. Gaia Sourcing can negotiate on your behalf when negotiating for financing with a factory. Typically, financing credit lines will not be considered unless a relationship has been developed with the factory and if there have been large orders over a sustained period.

This comes with time. Having been in the industry and manufactured products in the Greater Bay Area for over 20 years, we have developed a vast network of suppliers.

In China there is no better way to develop a relationship with someone than to do business with them. Additionally to support this, one must also show face by going for factory visits, attending lunches and dinners, and possibly even having a tipple of pijiu or baijiu.
