Some important facts to consider:
- We take your privacy very seriously.  We NEVER share or steal product ideas.  We have been in this business a long time and have a great reputation of privacy after shipping/sourcing THOUSANDS of products for other people. 

- We generally LOVE using sourcing agents, and their small fees are MORE THAN WORTH it in time spent, experience garnered, and the access to manufacturers that they have.  HOWEVER, we ALSO sometimes know of ACTUAL FACTORIES that may be a good fit for you!  In those cases, we will pass your info on to those manufacturers as well!  

- We are giving you a FREE service here, where we pass your info on to who we recommend for your product.  It does not always mean there is a good fit for each referral... So we make NO guarantees of success.  This is JUST a FREE matching service based on OUR experiences with our TRUSTED and VETTED sourcing agents.  No guarantees here based on how many of our referrals will contact you, some things just don't work out.......  But we will give it a shot!  

- Sometimes you may have a product or MOQ that our network is not interested in, so there WILL be occasions where you will not get a favorable response....  In those cases, you can't hold us liable or get angry at this FREE service!  In the same light, please do not 100% rely on this service.  You should still be reaching out to other resources for your sourcing so that you can:
1) compare multiple prices and options
2) have other options in case our network can't help!

- Please be patient.  Most of our contacts might take a day or two to respond (the good ones are busy!), and also consider holidays overseas (they won't work during those days).
