TradePongo has been a seller-centric marketplace since our inception - that's why we don't make any money until you do. In fact, TradePongo has by far the lowest fees from any other marketplace. It is only 2% of the final value sale. There are no listing fees, no sneaky fees. Businesses can have their own customized store-front with their own logo, for the monthly cost of a cup of coffee.
TradePongo core goals and values:
At TradePongo we strive to be the best marketplace. Despite our world's lowest final value sale fee of 2%, there are very strict policies and rules in place. All of our sellers are vetted by humans. No sellers or buyers are allowed to have a PO Box as their physical address. Sellers who receive three negative reviews in a row are automatically suspended by the system pending investigation.
Our 2% fee allows buyers to lower their prices and still end up with higher profits compared to other marketplaces. For instance, ebay will take between $15-$19 on a $100 sale. The seller ends up with $81-$85 depending on your privileges at ebay. At TradePongo on a $100 sale, the seller ends up with $98. This allows the seller to lower the price of their product (make it more attractive) and still end up with more profits than selling at any other marketplace.
Honesty is a requirement at TradePongo. Sellers cannot deceive their customers which is why they are vetted prior to being allowed to sell. Honesty is a requirement for buyers as well.
TradePongo rewards good (honest) sellers by sending them TradePongo branded merchandise (caps, t-shirts etc).
