We save ecom brands millions by lowering their COGS from China

We only get paid if you save money!

Why review your COGs?

The only way your business will scale is by aggressively reducing costs.

Renegotiating your contract with suppliers is one of the ways you can lower your cost of goods, but MOST people don’t do it.

* Lower cost of goods

* Higher profit margin

* More liquidity (buy more, market more, fund R&D for new products)

* Better relationship with your supplier

Why hire us?

Sean Weisbrot is an American consultant and investor who lived in Asia for 14 years and is now based in Portugal.

After getting a degree in Psychology, he moved to China at the age of 22. He lived in China for 10 years and is fluent/literate in Mandarin.

Why can't I do it myself?

While you CAN do it directly, the reality is China is a large country with huge differences across each region.

That means a strategy used with one factory may fail with another and end up getting you nowhere or worse.

By knowing China deeply like we do, we’re able to help you avoid the pain of NOT knowing China, all while benefiting from lower COGs and higher profit margins.

FAQs

What is the process?

  • Step 1 is Strategy, where we determine your high-level goals and use them to formulate an actionable strategy.
  • Step 2 is Investigation, where we dive deep into the industry to do price discovery on your product cost.
  • Step 3 is Execution, where we communicate professionally and effectively with vendors to renegotiate contracts.

How long does the entire process usually take?

Every client has a different situation, but generally everything can be completed within 6 weeks.

How many clients can you work with at a time?

Because this is a very white glove service, we put a lot of energy into serving each client.

Therefore, we choose to only work with 5 clients at a time and give them our full attention.

How do I know you can actually help us?

Sean has lived in China for 10 years and is fluent and literate in Mandarin.

He worked in international trade for 2 years, visited numerous factories, negotiating tile deals for foreign property developers and frozen chicken deals for Chinese wholesale importers, so he knows how to communicate with factories, do quality control, and market-based price discovery.

He has also invested in ecommerce brands and ecommerce liquidators.

We pride ourselves on the details, and we care deeply about providing a high quality service.

Also, we have a lot of experience running this process, so managing vendors and saving clients money comes naturally for us!

How much can you save us?

The amount we can save you depends on a number of factors that we won’t know until we go deeper into your unique situation.

We view the potential as like a bell curve in that some products might be so perfectly priced that we can’t save you anything, in which case you pay us nothing for our effort.

The majority of products will tolerate a 2-10% reduction, and some products might be so poorly priced from the vendor that we can save 10-50%.

Once we do our investigation, we will be able to better inform you and execute our negotiation strategy to find the true price the vendor is willing to bear.

How much does it cost to work with you?

Working with us will result in two eventualities:

1) We save you money, and you pay us 50% of your first year’s savings.

2)We don’t save you money, and you don’t pay us ANYTHING
