How to Eliminate Product Quality Fade For Your eCommerce Brand with Sajag Agarwal of Movley

eCommerce Profits Podcast

Sajag Agarwal is a former seven-figure Amazon seller and the current Founder of Movley. In 2015, he grew his first ecommerce brand to $2 million a year in less than two years. But, after his business was plagued with quality control problems, Sajag decided to move to China, where he visited factories and performed his own inspections. He discovered that good inspections would have identified almost all of his manufacturing defects before shipment. With this in mind, Sajag founded Movley to help brands manufacturing overseas build better products through on-the-ground quality control inspections. In this episode… The bane of any ecommerce brand is quality fade: when the quality of products from a supplier suddenly goes downhill after a few orders. When this happens, a brand’s return and warranty claim rate skyrockets and they lose the valuable trust of their customers. Unfortunately, product quality fade is a common problem for many ecommerce brands. This is typically because of high rates of bribery and fraud in the product inspection and quality control process, as well as a lack of human connection between sellers and suppliers. So how can you eliminate product quality fade and protect your ecommerce brand today? Listen to this episode of the eCommerce Profits Podcast, hosted by Joshua Chin and featuring Sajag Agarwal, the Founder of Movley. Together, they talk about how to eliminate product quality fade when sourcing products from China, what to look for during product tests and inspections, and the lessons Sajag learned from his wealth of ecommerce supply chain experience. Stay tuned to catch all the details.

Fraud, Bribery, Inventory Quality Control with Sajag Agarwal of Movley Inspections #124

My Amazon Guy

Amazon seller turned inspection company Movley.  Why do inspections make financial sense? - I can walk through the calculation, how just $3k of defective products can pay for 7 years worth of inspections!  How does fraud & bribery work when it comes to inspections? - Common misconception is that this is a zero-sum game. Inspectors routinely commit fraud with or without bribes. Great chance to talk about how to prevent it.Take aways:Make sure you test your products. Sell a paper cup? Put water in it.Inspections are not a one off thing.Supply chain comes down to the human element. Inspectors can often be "honest thieves."Bio: Sajag Agarwal previously lived in China, is a former 7-figure Amazon seller, and the current founder of Movley. In 2015, he founded and grew his first e-commerce brand to $2M/yr in less than 2 years. Plagued with quality control problems, Sajag moved to China for 6 months, opened an office in Shenzhen, and spent most of his time on the factory floor. While there, he watched his inspectors fraudulently pass his bad production orders and did his own inspections. Out of frustration, in 2018 he founded Movley to make manufacturing overseas easier and more controllable. Movley brings tech, data analytics, and better process to do inspections better & more efficiently.

We want to be as close to perfect as we can get.” - Sajag Agarwal 13:01 - “So factories have the incentive of producing the cheapest products that you want to buy. So as long as you keep buying the products, they like to go a little bit cheaper after every order.” - Sajag Agarwal 30:38 - “And that’s really what’s critical, is that there is a human element that goes into the inspection process.” - Sajag Agarwal
