Buying Trips

Buying Trips - for the Commercial Buyer !

We are specialist suppliers for hotels, resorts, restaurants, spas, furniture retailers, garden supply centres, landscapers, homeware stores as well as conference planners, event and wedding organisers.

If you're planning a trip to Bali, allow us to assist.  We assist you, the commercial buyer every step of the way.  From advice of accommodation, planning valuable time to meet with suppliers, sample and select new products, transportation, drivers and preparation of purchase orders and follow up.

You are escorted at all times by a dedicated Account Manager, a trusted member of the Sourcing Bali Crew, acting as your eyes and ears, taking notes and digital images of any selected products.

At the end of each buying day, we download all images, and consolidate all new data - ready to review the next day.

All purchase orders are processed thru the Sourcing Bali accounting and Inventory system M.Y.O.B and all purchase orders are copied to you for your files.

A detailed cash report summary is prepared for each buying trip and any archived files are also readily available upon request.

Our goal is to provide you with new ideas, new suppliers, new products etc between each visit to Bali.  Regular newsletter updates and our What's New  section of this website also helps to showcase any such items / suppliers.

We understand that your time in Bali is valuable and we make every effort to ensure that your time is spent efficiently.

Buying Tips

  2. Length of stay - depends on the variety, range, and QTY of your orders.  Buying trips usually vary from 1-3 days.
  3. Meetings - If you need to meet with suppliers, without the hastle of traffic, feel free to invite suppliers to our offices / your office and make use of the facilities at Sourcing Bali.
