3Diligent does not charge its vendors a membership fee to join – we simply ask vendors to cover the cost of fabricating a test part as a step in our supplier qualification process.
Once you are onboarded, 3Diligent does not charge an ongoing membership fee either. Instead, we retain a percentage of the total bid amount for awarded contracts. This helps to cover the our costs for sales, marketing, engineering, and project management - expenses that you avoid when fulfilling 3Diligent work. The share of the bid amount that you will retain is automatically calculated and displayed on screen whenever you are issuing a bid.
