Online Classifed Sites

on Tue, Sep 10 2013
While online peer to peer auction and classified sites such as Gumtree and JunkMail refuse to get involved in the delivery and payment processes of the goods and services procured on their platforms, TradeSafe has a different approach. We provide step-by-step email correspondence detailing the progress of each trade so you know exactly where you, and your money, are in the transaction process.

Motor Vehicles & Watercraft

on Tue, Sep 10 2013
The buying and selling of vehicles, boats and motorbikes are fraught with many dangers, some of which are life-threatening. Often the counter party lives in another city and it is not worthwhile to travel there to inspect the vehicle. TradeSafe removes this risk and offers a safe solution to the trading of these big ticket items.

It's Holiday Time!

High hopes for your ideal family holiday come to a heart-wrenching halt when you discover the pictures in the ad fall dismally short of the real deal. Gutted, you realise you've lost your deposit and your sense of humour. The good news? When you use TradeSafe's third party escrow system, what you see in the ad is what you get – or no one gets paid!

Safety is becoming a key factor why online consumers are reluctant to buy or sell goods using online classified websites. In acts of desperation, criminals are resorting to malicious and insidious acts of violence to get what they want. At TradeSafe, we reduce this risk significantly. If you select our preferred courier service (launching soon!), you will never interact with the counterparty...if you are buying goods, the only information the counterparty will have of you is your first name and email address!
