    How trustworthy or reliable are the suppliers listed on your portal?

    • Tradeindia Editor says:

      Tradeindia reviews and takes utmost care in verifying the companies (sellers) that get listed on TradeIndia.com. However, at the same time, we recommend buyers to deal with companies having “Trusted Seller” seal / batch on their company listings. These companies are verified by TradeIndia and are trustworthy and reliable when it comes to doing business online.

  2. Sandeep Sharma says:

    Does Tradeindia take responsibility for any fraudulent nature of suppliers?

    • Tradeindia Editor says:

      Tradeindia is an online B2B marketplace which connects together suppliers with buyers. However, it does not directly participate in the deals and transactions that take place between suppliers and buyers. TradeIndia, therefore, is not accountable for the fraudulent nature of suppliers / buyers (if any).
