How it works
TradeSafe’s escrow protects buyers and sellers by holding the buyer’s funds in an escrow holding account until the seller delivers the goods or fulfils their obligations. Buyers get what they paid for, and sellers are guaranteed payment.
Buyer and seller agree on the terms of the deal
Buyer deposits funds with TradeSafe
Once both the buyer and seller have agreed to the terms of the deal, the buyer will deposit the funds in full with TradeSafe. The seller will receive a signed letter of comfort.
The seller delivers the goods or services
Knowing that the funds are safe with TradeSafe, the seller can confidently deliver the goods or services to the buyer. Courier or tracking information can also be uploaded.
