Business to Business

TradeSafe has advantages for many business related transactions from investing or selling your business to trading with clients across international borders.

In respect of transactions, a common risk for the Seller is that the Buyer doesn't have the requisite funds or willingness to purchase the company as agreed. The integrity of collateral may also be falsified. A key risk for the Buyer is that the Seller may misrepresent what is being sold.

And what of cross border transactions? For example, you are provided a sample from a an overseas supplier who wants to sell you a large shipment of consumer goods. The shipment is critical for the growth of your business...but its cash upfront. The Buyer can trade through the TradeSafe platform, upload test results or specifications of the sample, and if the container arrives with an inferior product the Buyer will not lose his/her funds. TradeSafe has you covered every step of the way.

TradeSafe will safeguard the funds and documents in trust until the terms of the transaction have been met. If the counterparty is happy we will release the funds. If not, the parties can renegotiate the terms of the deal using our online platform. If all else fails, the parties can facilitate online arbitration on the matter!
