Help: Question and Answers

  • help_outlineWhat was the reason to make this website?

    In times of globalization companies place their factories all over the world. Modern transportation - air, sea, road and rail - makes it easy to deliver every possible product to every possible country, irrespective of factory location, in a short time and at low cost. When you go to an electronic or computer shop nearest to your home you can find there products made in tens of countries. And maybe before making a purchase you will want to check an origin of a desired product. If so - this website is for you!

  • help_outlineHow can I find information?

    There are two major ways of getting information from this website: searching and browsing. To search please type part of product name or code (no less than 3 characters) in search box, which is located on right side of the site header. To browse please use menu bar located within page header. You can browse...

    1. - by Country in which products were manufactured,
    2. - by Company/brand who made them or
    3. - by Category of products.

    Irrespective of the way you choose the result will be a list of applicable products with information about place of origin: country (always), city (optional) and factory (optional).

  • help_outlineWhy, for many products, there is no information about city and factory, only about country?

    Some data we have collected manually, reading labels on products and their boxes. The only information placed there usually is about country of origin. If manufacturers of these products will decide to cooperate with us, information will be filled up.

  • help_outlineWhy some of product categories are empty?

    This service is developed constantly and grows bit by bit. Empty category indicates that we have no such products yet, but we plan to add them in future. You can help us fill the empty categories, submitting proposals via our New Product Form. You can also send us proposal of a quite new category. To do this use our Contact Form.

  • help_outlineWhat about reliability and completeness of information?

    We use two ways of collecting information about products. Some manufacturers and brand owners send us information in electronic format. The other way is just to read labels on products and their boxes. This method implies some limitations and faults. Companies ften have more than one factory for the same kind of products and country mentioned on label may can be not the one and only place of production. People are sometimes fallible and labels are sometimes illegible, so mistakes are possible. Due to these and other limitations we can't take responsibility for completeness and reliability of presented information. Please see Legal Disclaimer and Terms and Conditions for more details.

  • help_outlineMy company is a well known manufacturer and/or brand owner. How can we add our products to your database?

    You are welcome. Please inform us using our Contact Form and we will send you details about our possible cooperation. Please keep in mind that at this moment we publish information about brands and companies of global or international scope only. Maybe in future we will be interested also in country-wide brands.

  • help_outlineI have other questions. What can I do to get answers?
