Sofeast provides you with a clear, flat fee or hourly pricing in USD.
The solutions we provide you are broken down into categories, and we’ll list the pricing and anything else you may need to know for each below.
We usually list the price on site for our core locations, but we do operate throughout other areas of Asia as well (costs may vary for other locations and we’ll let you know if that’s the case).
Our key solutions & pricing
Please note, this is our standard pricing. Discounted pricing is offered to clients based on the volume of solutions ordered. Please discuss this with your Sofeast contact or project manager.
This work will typically cost into the $1000's.
*for qualified clients
Preferably when a final prototype is to hand.
Includes work required, number of square meters your products will occupy in our warehouse, and (as needed) the shipping cost.
We first need to evaluate the time to unpack & sort the goods and the time to rework & repack them. At that point, we can provide a quotation.

Sofeast pricing FAQs
Supply Chain Management solutions
Instead of always paying for hours of work, is it possible to pay Sofeast a percentage of the orders?
No, we have never done this. Think of us as a professional service provider. We always have to be paid for our work. We can sometimes propose flat fees for specific deliverables, but we never do work on a contingency basis.
We fulfill many of the same functions, but our business model is a bit different. We keep our clients by providing value, not by making ourselves indispensable, and certainly not by keeping certain information close to our chest (our clients know everything).
Note, that we do provide a solution where we take on the role of your procurement office.
First, what is a good factory for importer A may not be a good factory for other buyers.
Second, we can probably help you source a supplier, and you can select this solution here. We will activate our network of suppliers, get them to confirm they are interested in your business and screen them to ensure they are a good fit for your project.
Quality Assurance solutions
We need to know where the factory is (which city, and if possible which district), what you are buying and in what quantity, and what your needs and requirements are.
Product Engineering solutions
If you have a very clearly documented project, you are used to developing new products for manufacturing in Asia, and you are comfortable managing all the technical work, Upwork may be a great place to find engineers. We will still be happy to provide reviews and guidance where and if you need.
We need to review your product idea, and how mature it is. If you don’t have a design yet, we can put you in contact with a design house. What we can do at an early stage is a review of your project in order to identify the main risks and challenges you will encounter.
