Factory FAQ

 

  1. FACTORY e-platform is a project consisting in “group import” of new clothing in accordance with the designs from the latest collections. The clothes are imported from such countries as Import Italy, France, Turkey, India, and Pakistan. For clients interested in new, cheap, mass-production clothes we import clothing also from China.
  1. The e-platform gathers clothing trading companies from all over the country to form one consolidated purchasing group. Such a group directly imports goods through the platform operator, and guarantees delivery date up to 7 days (excluding India and China).
  1. The e-platform buys only stocks of new clothes, by weight and all the participants of a purchasing group buy clothes by weight.  Such a system allows all the participants to reduce the cost by more than 50%.

 


A scheme specifying our  FACTORY service:

 

The minimum batch size depends on the client category. Clients are divided into two groups:

  1. Sole Distributors for a given region, who make purchases at so-called „import” prices. A minimum purchase amount in this group ranges from PLN 3,000 do 5.000 net. Each imported container with clothes will have a determined value of such a minimum amount of purchase.
  2. Authorized clothes shops with a FACTORY trade mark making purchases at so-called „wholesale” prices. A minimum purchase amount in this group is PLN 1,500 net. 

 

 

The ordered goods can be paid in the following way:

  1. Prepayment - when placing an order with the FACTORY e-platform; 
  2. When the goods are delivered to a  Distributor or when the goods are collected from a FACTORY warehouse; 
  3. With a deferred payment date – that is, after the goods are delivered to a Distributor.

Detailed payment terms and conditions are specified in the registration agreement.

Information on this subject is included in the FINANCING bookmark.

Financial settlements between a Distributor and the FACTORY e-platform will be made in PLN (Polish zlotys). Import prices will be presented in USD (American dollars) ($) or in EUR (the euro) (€) and will be converted into PLN at a current exchange rate effective on the ordering date.

Yes, they can, but only in the seat or warehouse of the FACTORY e-platform. In exceptional cases cash payment can be made to the Regional Representative, who will collect the cash in the Distributor’s seat.

In order to obtain ‘’import” prices, it is required to be a Distributor for a given region. The FACTORY 

e-platform has formed 49 regions (ex-provinces), from which a company will be chosen and will have the status of a sole Distributor.

-------------

Sole Distributors may change. A change may take place when a sole Distributor does not make purchases at the e-platform. 

No, there is no obligation to do so, but if purchases are not made for a couple of months, an exclusive dealing agreement may be terminated.

Delivery dates will depend on the country from which  the goods are imported:

  1. Western European countries + Turkey – 7 days
  2. Far East (India, China) – 30 days

The market for new clothes in Poland operates on the basis of the following scheme:

Presently, Distributors, being wholesalers or semi-wholesalers, do not import clothes in container quantities on their own. 

The clothes market is constructed in such a way that the existence of a large number of agents causes price increases and the agents “rake in” profit margins that, in the FACTORY project, will be taken by a Distributor.

In the FACTORY project a Distributor becomes an importer. The status of an importer guarantees the lowest possible price, which results in the reduction of purchase prices even by as much as up to 50%.

Yes, it is. Collection of goods by the Distributor itself is possible from the FACTORY warehouse, which is situated in the vicinity of Warsaw.

Yes, it will be possible to check the quality of the goods prior to purchasing, in the following way:

  1. On the basis of photographs and descriptions placed on the FACTORY e-platform
  2. On the basis of samples available for presentation in the FACTORY warehouse (in the showroom);
  3. On the basis of samples available for presentation during FACTORY-organized local meetings with Distributors

As regards deliveries in the territory of Poland, the FACTORY e-platform collaborates with courier companies.  The price of delivery equals the courier company price in conformity with an effective pricelist.

Deliveries will be made to every place in Poland. Delivery date – up to 48 hours. 

The FACTORY e-platform buys in selected warehouse stocks. Collections in such stocks usually do not repeat. The probability of a repeated collection is very low. It should be assumed that collections will not repeat.

Each batch will be imported with a determined importation surplus. It will be possible to lodge an additional order for goods within the framework of such surplus. 

There are no determined delivery days.  Each delivery will be advised, while a date for the delivery of goods to a FACTORY warehouse in Poland will be defined with 48 hours’ accuracy for each count of accumulation and will be displayed in electronic orders lodged by the Distributors.
