Component sourcing is not a simple task in real life. Finding proper parts/components from both reliable and professional suppliers is not easy. Price is not the only factor that must be considered when sourcing components. This job can take a few days for our experienced procurement engineers to carry out satisfactorily.
We only start this job when the customer places the turn-key order with us. Normally, the component cost will be provided in the first 5 working days once the order is confirmed. For most low-quantity orders (less than 50 units), the component costs are similar to what it would be if it was purchased in the oversea. This will eventually drop as the quantity increases. In the unlikely case that the price we quoted is not acceptable to you, you can choose to provide the components yourself.
