Information

Please provide genuine information about you, your business and products in your profile and communication with other users.

If you detect any inconsistencies in a user’s information, simply don’t make business and let us know about it.

Payments & Refunds

One of our services is accepting payments on behalf of the sellers. This guarantees our buyers that only upon safe delivery of their purchased products their payment will go through to the seller. In the case of flawed, defective products or no delivery, a partial or full refund is made by us to the buyer, if relevant proofs are provided.

Q: Can a distributor pay directly a manufacturer?

A: In order for us to accumulate your purchase achievements as a we need to receive payment directly from you. This also enables us to verify that the amount accumulated to the Supplier as a Sale Achievement is actually paid and most importantly, it guarantees your safety for online transactions through TradeLizard. We aim to give you s smooth experience by minimizing all uncertainties and potential risks.

We are soon introducing an online payment gateway that will enable fast, safe and cost-effective payments.

Customs

When trading with other countries, customs and excise laws and regulations apply. The payment of duties and taxes as well as obtaining of licenses based on the type of product and according to a country’s requirements must be thoroughly studied before making a decision to import. Make sure to check your country’s policies for imports/exports and also learn about export policies in your seller's country.

Some types of products are under restrictions and some are even prohibited in certain countries. Consult our Terms of Use to find out which products are prohibited to be traded via our platform.

Make sure to know of international policies related to countries that undergo sanctions and embargo. Unfortunately, we can’t do business with these countries, not by choice.

We do not provide consultation regarding international trade and relevant laws but we direct you to relevant websites where you can get important information. If in doubt, please contact us via email or phone.
