However, since the daily volume of leads posted is quite high, it is not possible for us to carry out detailed verification of a buyer's authenticity by looking at his/her company documents. Employing third party verification agencies to scrutinize each buyer is also not economically feasible at large scale. Therefore, we advise users to independently verify every buyer they meet online by requesting them for their company documents, identity proof, credit checks etc. Additional checks should also be performed to ensure that the buyer has imported products in the past. An old bill of laden from a past transaction can serve as a proof for this.
On the seller side, we do check company documents to ensure that sellers are genuine. However, note that it is voluntary on the part of the seller to go through the verification process. Every seller that we verify receives a badge on their profiles to indicate their account verification status. We advise buyers to only interact with those sellers who have completed profile verification. Similarly, we advise sellers to get their accounts duly verified to increase their chances of receiving direct inquiries from buyers.
