If a User notifies TradeSafe of a dispute relating to a Trade, TradeSafe will immediately freeze the Trade. TradeSafe will only unfreeze the trade if:

    • The Parties indicate on the Platform that the dispute has been settled;
    • It receives an order from an arbitrator; or
    • It receives an order from an appropriate court of law or similar legal body.

If a dispute is declared, the Buyer and Seller will have 10 (ten) days to resolve the dispute between themselves. If they cannot resolve the dispute within this 10-day period, TradeSafe will refer them to:

    • the SCC, if the dispute is declared by an individual (not a juristic person) and the value of the dispute is R20,000.00 (twenty thousand Rand) or less; or
    • arbitration, if the dispute is declared by a juristic person or the value dispute is more than R20,000.00 (twenty thousand Rand).

Why do I need to provide my ID and mobile number?


First off, your details are safe and secure. Your information is encrypted with the highest industry-specific standards which can be found in most banks.


Our payment service provider is TradeSafe Escrow. When the buyer deposits the funds, they will make payment to TradeSafe who will hold the funds in the middle (in a trust account). Once the seller has delivered what was ordered, then TradeSafe releases the funds to the selling party.


TradeSafe is required by the South African Reserve Bank to know the identities of the parties and that is why these details are required.
