Assuring Buyer and Seller Security
TradeSafe is South Africa's trusted third party in a trade between yourself and another party. We are an independent online escrow platform that provides financial protection by securely safeguarding the funds and the documentation, in trust, until both parties are satisfied that the terms of the transaction have been met. The funds are then released to the Seller.
Found something to buy or sell online? A phone, car, boat, rent a holiday, day-to-day business? Anything? Register on TradeSafe and fill in the terms of the trade. You can upload pictures, or other docs if necessary.learn more
Now use TradeSafe to invite the other party to your transaction. Other party thinks you too pricey? No problem…you can negotiate with each other until a deal is reached. This is easily done online.learn more
When the deal is struck, the terms of the trade as well as the docs are locked. The Buyer then pays the money into TradeSafe’s audited Trust Account for safekeeping.learn more
TradeSafe informs both parties that the funds have been paid and verified. The Seller must then arrange delivery of the goods or perform the service. Delivery is safer now that the funds are in the middle.learn more
When the Buyer receives the goods/services and is happy, we release the funds to the Seller. It’s that easy! If the Buyer is not happy, he/she can log onto TradeSafe and lodge a dispute. This gives the parties the ability to re-negotiate the terms of the trade.learn more
Trading in SA is risky; fraud is everywhere and just about everybody has been scammed, or knows somebody that has been scammed. If the Buyer doesn't have the agreed funds, the trade will not start. If the Seller doesn't deliver what was agreed, the Seller won't get paid.
The vintage Ferrari you want to buy halfway across the country shouldn't mean you have to book a flight to check it out. If someone misrepresents what they are selling, the onus is on them to fetch it when it’s rejected. Be honest on TradeSafe, or it's going to cost you.
As an independent and impartial third party, we bridge the gap between Buyer and Seller and bring balance back to the trade exchange.
Unless the product that you ordered is exactly in the condition the advertisement described it, the Seller will not get paid. We provide peace of mind.
Other party can't do what was promised? There'll be no 50% deposit to fleece someone out of, thank you very much. TradeSafe doesn't hold deposits. The full amount is in the middle until delivery takes place.
Buying and selling 2nd hand goods can be fraught with many dangers, some which can be life threatening. With TradeSafe there's no handling of cash. You can use our courier service if you never want to meet the other party.
