Hi there, my name is Daniel, the CEO of IRONLAND, IRONLAND is a tool bag manufacturer and a solutions provider for the tool bag business. Over the years, we have got in touch with many tool bag B2B clients and provided quotations to them. We believe that the approval of the quotation by the buyer and the seller is the key to starting the cooperation. We have noticed that some clients do not understand well the quotation because they may be new to the tool bag industry or know less about international trade. So I wrote this article to help readers who need it to understand the tool bag quotation and share some tips to lower the unit price.
The tool bag quotation and unit price mentioned in this article are applicable to tool bags business, tool bags international trade, tool bags B2B, wholesale tool bags, procurement tool bags and customize tool bags.
What Is Tool Bag Quotation？
Quotation is the price list provided by the seller to the buyer to confirm product specifications, unit prices and other information. The seller match the product specification and unit price, so that the buyer know the unit price of the product of a certain specification that they want to purchase. In the field of tool bag B2B business, we called tool bag quotation.
What Is Included In The Tool Bag Quotation?
Such as buyer and seller company information, quotation date and reference number, etc.
The order quantity required by the buyer or the MOQ provided by the seller (please check ‘The MOQ Of Tool Bag Bulk Sourcing‘ for more information about MOQ), usually the quantity of the product is up to the buyer. For example, if buyer wants to purchase 3,000 pcs of Z-type tool bags, it requires the seller to provide quotation based on 3,000 pcs Z-type tool bags. Or, if buyer wants to purchase a small qty of Z-type tool bags, it requires the seller to provide the quotation of Z-type tool bag based on MOQ.
Refers to the unit price of a product based on product quantity, product specification and incoterms. In international trade, whichever product quantity, product specification or incoterms affect product price.
- Quantity. Generally speaking, the more the product quantity is, the lower the unit cost of the product, the lower the unit price.
- Product Specification. The price of different products is different, it’s easy to understand!
- Incoterms. It stipulates the responsibilities and obligations of buyers and sellers. There are many processes in international transportation, mainly are: the goods are transported from the factory to the port of loading—-export procedures—-transported from the port of loading to the port of destination—-import procedures—–transported to the buyer’s warehouse. The incoterms are to stipulate that the seller’s quotation includes all the costs (usually freight) and responsibilities of the goods being transported to a certain place. For example, FOB NINGBO USD3.5/Pc means that the unit price usd3.5 includes all charges and responsibilities for the goods being transported to the container ship. Commonly used incoterms are: EXW, FOB, CIF or CFR, please check this post for more related knowledge: Guide For Transporting and Importing of Tool Bag Cargo.
Such as quotation validity period, sample policy and other necessary terms.
Several Kinds Of Tool Bags Quotation

We name this kind of quotation basic quotation.
Quotation Based On Buyer’s Requirements
As the name implies, this kind of quotation is provided by the seller according to the buyer’s requirements (such as the specification, design, packaging and quantity of customized products, etc.). In the tool bag B2B business, buyers usually prefer customized tool bags (such as Logo, color, structure, packaging, etc.), and the seller provides corresponding solutions according to the buyer’s requirements, after the final solution is approved by the buyer, the seller can make quotation accordingly.
