Online trading is full of fraudsters and with TradeSafe you can protect yourself from them and get the product you want, safely & securely.
Simply find what you want from your favourite online secondhand site and invite your counterpart to trade using the TradeSafe platform. Agree on a price and get all the details, pictures and documents uploaded into the trade. Transfer the funds to the audited Escrow Account and we will notify the seller once the funds have been cleared. They will send the item and you then have a pre-arranged inspection period to make sure you get what was advertised. If you are happy we release the funds. If not, you can renegotiate the terms of the trade or, as a final resort, use our arbitration service. Scams be gone!
