Don’t let scams sink your business
Not receiving the goods or services that you paid for can be financially crippling, packing every purchase with stress and uncertainty.
Get what you pay for, every time
TradeSafe is a digital escrow service that safeguards your funds in a bank-supported escrow (trust) account until the supplier has delivered precisely what was promised.
Get what you ordered
We only pay the seller once you confirm receipt of the goods or services.
Make payments safely
With management oversight by Standard Bank, TradeSafe holds your funds in a secure escrow holding account.
Multiple transaction options
You can set up different transaction structures with your suppliers such as milestone and drawdown payments.
TradeSafe provides wallet functionality that allows customers’ funds to be stored securely for future transactions.
If a seller misrepresents what he/she is selling,
they will not be paid.
Affordable fees as low as R49
The escrow fee can be paid by either party or split equally. Fees are affordable and are a fraction of what law firms would charge.
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.
