Lead time is quite different depending on specifications, quantity, and Qinghe’s manufacturing schedule. And the COVID-19 greatly influenced our lead time for most of the orders. The lead time below means the time from the day we accept the order to the day the order is ready for shipping, and it does not include the shipping time.
For normal specifications with LCL (Less Container Loading) Quantity: lead time normally ranges from 15 to 30 days.

Qinghe DOES NOT accept Credit Cards. We only accept the following two ways:
Way1：50% by T/T to confirm the order, 50% by T/T before shipping.
90% of our orders are handled in this payment term. As for most of the orders, when Qinghe start an order, Qinghe need to pay full payment of the material cost. 50% of the total contract value is only part of the material cost, Qinghe also need to invest certain amount to money to book and get the material. All of Qinghe’s quotation is based on this payment terms unless otherwise specified.
Way 2: Qinghe accept L/C at sight under certain circumstance.
In this Case, an extra cost USD700 will be charged besides the order amount. The government of some countries requires paying an overseas company must be conducted under L/C terms, companies from these countries can only pay by L/C. If customer’s government has no restriction policy on foreign currency, Qinghe doesn’t recommend L/C payment term. As most of the USD700 cost is mainly charged by banks on both sides. On the other hand, Qinghe will need to take a lot of time on paper works.
