Frequently Asked Questions
What is pipingonline.com?
Pipingonline.com is the marketplace to buy and sell piping online. You can search suppliers, post RFQs, compare bids and close great deals with the best suppliers directly. We provide useful online tools like audio / video calls, online chat, screen sharing, files exchange and documents co-writing to facilitate your collaboration with suppliers in every stage of the bidding and procurement process. To access our services, buyers and suppliers pay a flat monthly fee (after a free trial period).
What's the "Suppliers directory" service?
This service helps you search and contact online piping and steel suppliers that match your requirements exactly. You can filter suppliers by product line, by product type (example API 5L seamless pipes or ASTM A312 stainless steel pipes), by country and by type (mills, stockholders and traders). The directory helps you find the right answer to questions as: who are the stainless steel pipe suppliers in UAE? Who stocks nickel-alloy tubing in North America? Which suppliers may I qualify for stud bolts? Are there suppliers nearby the remote project location to save shipping times and cost? Which suppliers could I trust in China? Our database is populated by highly qualified and audited suppliers only. Unlock opportunities: check our directory now!
What's the "RFQs Board" service?
This service is designed to help you collect and compare bids for your RFQs and MTOs easily. All you have to do is upload your Excel / PDF RFQ / MTO in two clicks, decide in which countries the RFQ will be visible, set your company name as public or confidential, indicate the product lines included in your RFQ and post it (all this takes as little as one minute). As you do that, we publish your RFQ on our board which is browsed daily by hundreds of suppliers that can bid online. We tabulate their bids automatically (as they are submitted in a standardized way) to facilitate your evaluation process. You may also use the RFQ board service to manage your approved vendors efficiently: any registered supplier is notified automatically by email anytime you post a new RFQ and can bid online in seconds. You receive clearly tabulated bids and stop wasting time with emails, manual tabulations, missing information and unstandardized bids: take a look at our RFQ board!
What's the "Power-RFQs" service?
This service helps you find stock / fast-track deliveries and save money on the high-value items of your RFQs/MTOs (i.e. in all cases where a deep scan of the market is beneficial). All you have to do is list each of the items you need with our online configurator, float the RFQ and evaluate the bids submitted by suppliers. We need you to configure items online to be able to float each item for bidding in a very targeted way (to any and all the matching suppliers for the item in up to 10 countries) and to assemble very clear technical / commercial bids tabulations at item level for your item-specific evaluations. Power-RFQs help you test the market extensively, evaluate your options clearly and effortlessly and buy critical items with confidence: try our configurator!
