Anvyl has an open marketplace in which we allow brands to issue RFQs. Our goal through the RFQ process is to partner you will world-class suppliers. Upon issuance of an RFQ, the general turnaround time is 48 business hours during which you may receive a quotation, feedback, or any questions pertaining to the issued RFQ. We want to ensure you have a great experience with these suppliers and will share and make introductions to the supplier contacts as soon as possible. Ultimately these are your suppliers, are responsible for the relationship, and should be treated as you would when onboarding any new supplier to your organization.  

To issue an RFQ:

  1. Open Anvyl
  2. Click on the Global Actions blue "+"
  3. Click Issue RFQ
  4. Fill out the form
    • The form is a catch-all across all industries. There may be items that aren't relevant but we ask you to follow the form as best as possible. In the last text field asking "Is there anything else you'd like Anvyl or our suppliers to know about this project" you can summarize the RFQ.
