Buyers can communicate with suppliers by sending an inquiry for their required products. Each inquiry is on one product(e.g. Dried Apple). For an inquiry, buyers select suppliers and fill out an inquired product name, product category, tentative purchasing volume, destination country, requirements, and remarks. The inquiry is sent to the selected suppliers with the buyer’s company profile, which includes country, business type, year established, number of employees, website, and company description, to inform suppliers of their potential business partners.
