Sending emails to each other seems easy enough at first thought. However, using emails make the process non-standardized for both you and Buyer. Working through email can create confusion on costs, might require multiple emails and discussions, and it is overall time and efficiency draining for everyone involved. In our experience, both Buyer and supplier end up wasting a lot of time reconciling scope, costs, and other discussion points when done by email. Participating through the website will mean keeping all the project related discussions focused in one place. Moreover, it will take much lesser time to give a quote on the website compared to creating a quote document or proposals.
