All about payments order and options
There are about 5000 furniture factories in Foshan and the working terms with them are more or less the same.
Deposit for goods
Clients pay a 30-50% deposit when placing orders at markets. The order is put in a production queue after a factory receives the deposit.
If the payment is in cash, the order is queued on the same or next day.
If the payment made by a bank transfer a factory waits for financial department confirmation of receiving the money.
Sometimes, especially at the end of the year, showrooms have sales and can furniture on sale can be shipped right away. Remember showroom furniture is for clients to sit on, so probably thousands of people have sat on it before. Also, you won’t find many or any sales samples from the new collection.

Questions & Answers
Do I have to pay for transportation?
We are responsible for all transportation expenses around Foshan(except for a trip to factories). If your purchase is less than $ 30,000, you have to compensate for transportation costs when paying the balance.
This only applies to trips around Foshan with our managers.
What should I do if my purchase is less than $30 000?
It usually doesn’t happen, however, here is the price for agency fee in this case.
|Total purchase price||Agency fee|
|20000$ - 25000$||2500$|
|25001$ – $29.999$||2000$|
In addition, you will need to compensate for the cost of transportation around the city and a transfer from the airport when paying agent fees.
This policy is due to an increase in the amount of work. The cheaper furniture you bought, the more times our manager has to go to factories for quality control.
Why not less than $30 000?
According to our experience, starting with a budget of $30 000 clients save much more on delivery, customs clearance and furniture is much better quality, and we spend less energy on poor-quality furniture, so our managers have to make fewer visits to factories. You can read more about it in our article.
Does the company work with legal entity?
Yes, we work with both legal entity and individuals. You can contact us for more detailed information.
I already paid a deposit to the factory but then changed my mind. Will I get the deposit back?
Most of the factories don’t give back deposits. So if you want to cancel the order or place it in another factory, you will lose the deposit (30%).
