Do products sold on Amazon need full inspection?
The way of selling products through online platforms has long been accepted and loved by consumers. Many Amazon sellers often consider how to improve product quality to increase sales and minimize the return rate. Perhaps it is an effective quality control method to entrust a third-party inspection company to perform a full inspection at the factory.
What is full inspection
Full inspection means that the inspector will carry out 100% inspection on the whole batch of goods according to the product information and quality requirements provided by the client, that is to say, each product will be inspected, and each defective product will be removed from the mass goods during the inspection process, and the quantity of each defective product will be recorded according to different defect types. In addition, the inspector must perform the performance test of the product on site, check the appearance of the product, measure the weight, size, and verify whether the product package meets the order requirements.
Cost of full inspection
The cost of full inspection is determined by the inspection requirements provided by the client, product weight, dimensions and other factors. The inspection company will calculate the number of man-days needed to complete the inspection of all goods based on the number of products that can be inspected in each man-day.
The full inspection is mostly carried out in the factory. We suggest that the full inspection should be carried out after 100% of the goods are completed, and all products should be packaged after the complete inspection (try not to pack the products before the inspection). This process will avoid the damage caused by repeated disassembly and assembly of the inner packaging of the product, and will also greatly save the time of full inspection, thus saving the inspection cost.
Where does full inspection apply
A. Applicable to new suppliers
B. Suitable for high-value products
C. Suitable for small batch orders or trial orders
D. It is applicable to batch problems or serious defects found in orders after the first random inspection
The advantages and disadvantages of full inspection
Advantages: 100% of goods are carefully inspected, so the defect rate of orders is almost zero. In addition, all defective products will be picked out on site, and the suppliers' representatives will see them clearly, which will help them understand the quality problems of products in more detail and avoid unnecessary trade disputes.
Disadvantages: Since each product will be checked during the full inspection process, the inspection time will be longer. Therefore, the cost of full inspection will be higher than that of random inspection.
However, if it is a small batch order, all products may complete the full inspection within 1 man-day, then the cost of the full inspection will be exactly the same as random inspection. In this case, it is more cost-effective to choose the full inspection.
