Bad debt shouldn’t be business ‘norm’
Get paid every time, on time
Payment is held in escrow, which means you can release the goods or services without worry.
No more unpaid invoices
TradeSafe releases the payment the same business day the transaction terms are met.
Our digital registration process for personal or business accounts makes setting up your account a breeze.
Approve price adjustments and other refunds easily on our proprietary escrow platform.
Proof of funds
If the buyer does not have the funds to begin with, the transaction will not start. We save you time.
TradeSafe adopts Standard Bank’s host-to-host processing. We inform you immediately once the funds have been cleared.
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.
