How do I start a new RFQ in the Digital RFQ Marketplace?
It's easy! Simply click here to get started.
How does the Digital RFQ Marketplace work?
To get started with a new quote request, you can choose a category from a simple dropdown.
Next, you can give your new RFQ a title, specify the desired lead time, and choose a date through which you are willing to accept quotes.
Then you upload documents, drawings, and dimensioned prints related to the request.
Select a process, add necessary certifications, and specify quote requirements such as quantity, material, and finish in the notes section.
Once you submit your RFQ, it will be sent out to the Xometry suppliers who best match the job requirements. Suppliers can then message you with questions and submit quotes through the specified (end) date.
If a partner has a question during the quoting process, you can respond directly using the marketplace communication tool.
As quotes from our manufacturing partners roll in, you will be notified and can review your quotes from the RFQ summary page.
If a quote looks good to you, click “Accept” and award the work to the partner who submitted it.
And that’s all it takes to send, receive, and award quotes for work through Xometry’s new RFQ Marketplace. Start issuing RFQs at scale at www.xometry.com
What manufacturing services do you offer?
Suppliers in our network offer CNC, EDM, Sheet Metal, Stamping, and Die Casting.
What is the Marketplace?
Our RFQ Marketplace facilitates shopping and receiving quotes from many different suppliers. We do not provide the service, we are here to present other suppliers' services to you and facilitate a transaction.
How is your Marketplace different from your Instant Quoting Engine?
Our marketplace will help match you directly with shops that can help with your projects. Our Instant Quoting Engine is an on-demand manufacturing service powered by AI.
Can I use 3D models in the marketplace?
Yes, however, we offer instant quotes in our instant quoting engine on many processes including CNC, Sheet Metal, and 3D printing.
Can I use a drawing to get an instant quote?
Does the Marketplace support ITAR work?
Yes. We follow government regulations on all ITAR files. ITAR drawings will only be shared with ITAR-approved manufacturers.
How do I pay for an order in the Marketplace?
You can check out with a credit card just as you would on the Instant Quoting Engine. Support for POs is coming in the near future.
