Buyer Matching Service Overview

Working directly with major retailers in China, Europe and the US, our Buyer Matching Service provides a unique partnering solution for Food & Beverage brands struggling to establish substantial, long-term export trade.

As one of our export clients, we will proactively reach out and open dialogue with carefully selected retail buyers in our marketplace to create suitable export opportunities for your business in the agreed territories.

Once we have opened dialogue with our selected buyers, we will introduce your brand and provide a full commercial proposal to those buyers with the objective of establishing a direct trading relationship between their business and your business via Absolute Advantage.

Product samples

During any sales negotiation it will be necessary to provide samples to prospective buyers. To ensure samples can be provided quickly, safely and cost effectively:

  • Territories outside of the EU require a small quantity of pre-packed sample boxes (1 of each proposed SKU) to be bulk shipped, customs cleared and stored ready for individual dispatch within the target country on request.
  • For targets within the EU we will arrange for a courier to deliver your samples directly from our offices to the prospect on request using pre-packed samples as described above.

In both cases we will provide a quote for payment of all delivery costs prior to dispatch and work closely with you to ensure all legal compliance requirements are adhered to for importing trade samples to the relevant territories.

Commission

On commencement of trade, a percentage commission of the achieved ex-works sales price will be due on the first trade and on all sales going forward in accordance with your chosen package. Wherever possible this will be added to your usual ex-works price to protect your margins.

100% Money Back Guarantee

Our partners work with us by invitation only. We will only invite you to work with us if we genuinely believe our retailers will want to buy your products.

In fact we’re so committed to ensuring your success, we guarantee to secure your first account with a major overseas retailer in 6 months or less. Or we’ll refund your entire investment.

Service scope and terms

  • Our Buyer Matching Service is provided on a fixed monthly investment basis with a 1 month cancellation notice period. This provides for placing an agreed set of products with prospective buyers in a single territory (eg: China OR Europe OR the USA) as agreed based on your objectives.
  • We will not target any territory or retailer which you request we avoid.
  • A fortnightly team call will be provided to ensure progress toward your export goals.

  • Unless advised otherwise, we will also set aside a suggested marketing budget of 10% of the achieved ex-works return to save time and costs when funding future marketing activities. The balance of this fund is maintained in your Client Portal and can be drawn down by you at any time on request.
