Telecommunications Partner, Vodafone
Mr. Khiesz Attila
Mr. Attila runs nine retail shops in Hungary and is an agent of the country's third largest mobile network operator. His businesses provide total solutions for mobile telecommunication services, including voice & data plans, handset exchange and mobile phone accessories.

"The idea of the Small Orders zone is excellent. Our market is not big when compared to the US or Western Europe, so having products available to us in small quantities allows us to source a greater variety of items at an affordable price."

Mr. Attila placed orders with six Small Orders zone suppliers for products ranging from mobile phone stands and phone cases to iPhone music systems and wireless charging table lamps. The total order value was USD76,089.

South America
Tapia Electronic
Mr. Andres Tapia, General Manager
The market potential for computer and mobile products in South America is significant, so Mr. Tapia felt confident in placing a number of orders at the Small Orders zone, especially facilitated by the small MOQ available for the products he was looking for. He ordered eight items from four suppliers, for a total order value of USD12,733.

" Small Orders zone is very attractive to a wholesaler like us. It enabled us to order smaller quantities but with more variety. We were looking for Micro SD cards, TV boxes, power supplies and headsets, and found that we could get everything we wanted here! The Small Orders zone is so convenient."

Specialized Business System PLC is an online eShop and small retail chain in Bulgaria. Mr. Jeliazkov placed an order for 120 pieces of a 3-in-1 charger travel kit, at a total value of USD294, right after he saw the product in the Small Orders zone on the second day of the fair.

"We were looking for this kind of product, and both the unit price and MOQ were very attractive. I will offer this product in our shops; if the sales are good, we will buy more from this supplier in the future."

Cogs N Keys
Mr. Graham Emmott, Proprietor
'Cogs N Keys' is a small retail and repair shop of watches that has serviced the lower to middle markets for 16 years but has now decided to offer more upmarket options.

Sourcing at the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair 2012, Mr. Emmott spotted a number of interesting men’s and ladies’ watches at the Small Orders zone on the first day of the fair. An on-the-spot order was placed the next day for around 100 pieces in various styles.

"Not everybody can afford the money, nor has the space, to buy in big quantities, so the Small Orders zone is an excellent idea! With smaller orders, we can offer more style varieties to customers and do more business, which keeps everything going. Indeed, the small-order size is the bread-and-butter of our industry. If the products sell well, we will certainly return and order more, so this is a win-win situation for both sides!"

Solmek Technology Limited
Tim Lo, Director

"Because suppliers on this platform have been verified, and many of them are also exhibitors at HKTDC fairs, they are reliable. The Small Orders zone business model works perfectly for me by enabling me to utilize my sourcing budget more efficiently to purchase a wider variety of products. Managing and completing the order online, including payment and shipping arrangements, is the perfect solution."
