1. Can you trust all dealers abroad?
Unfortunately there are many dubious suppliers who either do not deliver at all or want to deliver poor quality or counterfeit goods in order to protect the distance.We can minimize the risk because we are in contact with the companies on site and can visually check the quality and accept the goods (check before dispatch).Telephone contact with the company by our native speakers within the country can strengthen trust and also promote cooperation with the supplier.
2. How do I know if the quality is what I want?
A company visit with visit logs from our employees or partners can often create clarity as they also get more precise photos and opinions of neutral people. We also always recommend buying a sample article. In addition, the sales contract will be drawn up in your favor.
3. How can I read the terms and conditions of dealers abroad or what if instructions / descriptions are in a foreign language?

You even have to get this because he becomes your contractual partner.The agency Unitybuy acts as an intermediary and supports you with your import.However, you can use the data of the supplier abroad later to organize the imports yourself if you have gained enough knowledge of the process after the first import via the Unitybuy agency.You can also view manufacturer's contact details on our intranet and use them for your own import.You can also request the contact details of the desired provider from us in advance for a fee if you want to organize the import yourself from the start.

In principle, you can inquire about all goods from us. However, not all goods abroad are cheaper than in Germany or in the EU. For some goods, so-called anti-dumping duties are also levied and the brand manufacturers reserve the right to market for most branded goods. For textiles there are z. B. for textiles from China import restrictions but importing textiles is not possible either, only an import permit has to be applied for. Of course, we will also support you in this. There are further import restrictions. B. also for steel and porcelain from China. Branded goods such as Nokia, Sony, Nintendo, Apple etc. cannot be obtained from abroad with our help because the manufacturers have their own marketing rights and the products are rarely cheaper abroad than in the EU.
