This can help a buyer immensely in the business say for Supplier Relationships, Quantity Calculations, Product Specifications, Requirement Frequencies, etc. various aspects.

No, it can not be guaranteed. Price, Product Spec and Company Details are directly mentioned by the sellers, and they can keep updating it. So these are subject to change. Buyer should check all these details with seller when they are in contact.
That particular seller will revert to you on your requirement.
If you have directly filled up Multiple Response Form of home page for your requirement then multiple sellers can revert to you.
But if you have clicked ‘Send Inquiry’ of a particular product card/seller first and selected multiple seller responses in ‘Inquiry Form’ in next step, then multiple sellers including that particular seller can revert to you.
Generally sellers are keen to respond to an inquiry as they are equally interested in business. And that is why they are here to sell. But it is Not Must or Obligatory for seller to respond. They will revert if they are interested in a particular inquiry.
Seller will try to revert as soon as possible to the buyer – may be within few minutes or hours, and in less case few days based on their availability and interest.
No, RMI do not participate in price negotiation. Buyer has to do this on his/her own.
No. After passing on the business inquiry from a buyer to seller(s), RMI has no role or responsibility whatsoever of any kind in any further process. RMI in its endeavour provides just an exclusive online platform for –
- Buyers from India and abroad to source their requirement of raw material products of all types, and send business inquiry to / contact its sellers
- Sellers from India to reach out to potential and serious buyers across India and World
So beyond the point of passing of an inquiry to seller(s), RMI will have no role in any function like sales finalization, payment and terms, delivery, after sales service, etc. The buyer and seller will have to carry out entire sales/business deal separately outside of RMI at their mutually agreed price & terms, and on their own.
Yes, a buyer can anytime click ‘Delete Account’ tab under Manage Your Buyer Account and follow steps. And that buyer account with all its details will be deleted immediately from RMI.
