Common Questions
Does Sourcing Playground screen suppliers?

We are not an auditor or certifier – rather we focus on transparency. Our goal is to empower all of our buyers to make the best choices for their business. Sourcing Playground verifies suppliers in a number of ways including:

- Authenticating email addresses

- uploaded documents or links to documented evidence for certifications held, memberships, and policies.

- Sourcing Playground cross checks the supplier’s claim with industry leading standards themselves to verify their membership.

- displaying each supplier’s reviews & ratings and feedback on past projects

- working with certification standards to ensure best possible practices

- our featured suppliers also have an independent on-site verification audit displayed on their profile

Ultimately it is your responsibility to check and screen potential suppliers to make sure they’re a suitable supplier that meets the needs of your project and business.

What should I look for in a supplier?
You can evaluate suppliers by reviewing their profile on Sourcing Playground. Each supplier has their own profile which includes lots of information about the company and their products including: company type, capabilities, size, product portfolios, buyer feedback and reviews, certification and compliance and much more.
What happens after I choose a supplier?
Once you have chosen a supplier you are free to continue using Sourcing Playground’s chat feature to work through your project and get your products made. Share files and designs, discuss samples and agree on your order. Once you have received your goods, leave a review to help your supplier.
As we don’t currently have the option to process orders through Sourcing Playground, we recommend common best practices when working with new suppliers including, paying with Letter of Credit (LC) for new orders.
