Turks Toast Another Western Marshmallow

Updated: Jul 4, 2020 has happened yet again.

The Turks have toasted another Western buyer.

Last week a Western buyer surveyed the market for CoVid-19 nitrile gloves. They found reputable Chinese suppliers with government approvals, government audit results, government guaranteed factory re-certifications and the availability of third-party lot inspections to confirm product performance.

Prices offered by Chinese certified suppliers were within USD 0.01 of client-desired target prices.

What did they do? You already know.

They ordered a product with a price that was USD 0.01 lower than the certified Chinese supplier.

Thats's right...They saved a penny.

They received no authentication, no certificates, no third-party validations, and no bank guarantees. What did they get?

You guessed it...non-compliant product.

The buyer required medically certified products and received "mechanic's gloves." Their prospective customers have abandoned them, and they have lost a lot of money.

This is an unfortunately repetitive story relative to Western buyers dealing in Turkey, and we have seen this many times.

Don't be that guy!
