Importing from China: Magsafe Wallets now also with FindMy!

Magnetic innovation meets smart technology: The world of Magsafe Wallets explored

Importing Magsafe Wallets can be a lucrative venture considering their growing popularity and functionality. Known for their innovative magnetic attachment system, these wallets are a trend in the tech accessory market. However, as an importer, it is important to be aware of several crucial aspects to ensure that your import process runs smoothly and successfully. In this blog we discuss the most important considerations when importing Magsafe Wallets.

What are Magsafe Wallets?

Magsafe wallets are an innovative accessory for iPhones that use Apple's Magsafe technology. Introduced with the iPhone 12 series, this technology uses a series of magnets around the iPhone's wireless charging coil to attach compatible accessories such as wallets, cases and chargers. The Magsafe wallets are designed to snap directly onto the back of the iPhone, providing a convenient and secure way to carry cards and cash.

Quality assurance and material selection

The quality of a Magsafe Wallet is essential. This not only concerns the durability of the material, but also the strength and reliability of the magnets. Choose suppliers who use high-quality materials and who can guarantee that the magnets are strong enough to securely attach to a smartphone without causing damage.

Compatibility and design

A Magsafe Wallet must be compatible with the different models of smartphones that support Magsafe technology. Pay attention to the design: A well-designed Magsafe Wallet should not only be functional, but also aesthetically pleasing, to suit the diverse preferences of customers.

Made for Magsafe (MfM) and FindMy integration

In order to import Magsafe Wallets that are fully compatible with Apple's Magsafe technology, it is important to meet the 'Made for Magsafe' (MfM) requirements. This program ensures that accessories meet Apple's quality and performance standards. Additionally, integration with Apple's 'FindMy' network is an attractive feature for consumers, allowing them to locate their wallet if it is lost or stolen. Make sure your products support these functionalities for greater market appeal.

However, the integration of Magsafe wallets with Apple's "Find My" network is a relatively new development. This feature is intended to help users find their lost wallet. Here's how it works:

  1. FindMy Integration: Some Magsafe Wallets, especially those from third parties, can be equipped with an Apple AirTag or a similar tracker. However, Apple's own Magsafe Wallet does not have built-in tracking functionality. By using a tracker, users can track the location of their wallet through the “Find My” app on their iPhone.
  2. Location Tracking: If you lose your Magsafe Wallet, you can see its location on a map within the "Find My" app, as long as the wallet is within range of the Find My network. This network uses millions of Apple devices around the world to signal the location of lost items.
  3. Privacy and security: Apple's Find My network is designed with privacy at its core. The location data is encrypted and sent anonymously, so no one, including Apple, can see the location of your Magsafe Wallet except you.
  4. Limitations: It is important to emphasise that tracking functionality is dependent on proximity to other Apple devices. In remote areas without many Apple devices around, it can be more difficult to track a lost wallet.
  5. Ease of use: This integration with Find My allows users to use their Magsafe Wallet with peace of mind, knowing they have a better chance of finding it if it is lost or forgotten.

It is important to know that your supplier must be officially Made for Magsafe (MfM) certified! This is comparable to the Made for iPhone (MFi) certification.
