Why is it not possible to order in one step at zentrada?

Wholesale orders are usually bigger and more complicated and should not be compared to the processing of private shopping. To enable a satisfactory processing, it is important to clarify all questions before ordering.

From our experience available quantities, delivery dates, shipping costs and if applicable volume discounts and VAT treatment (for international orders) can only be clarified with an individual quotation. Only with this extra step, the ordered items and terms are exactly defined and we can guarantee satisfaction in the context of TradeSafe.

How are disputes in solving problems managed?

The TradeSafe order processing creates a legal relationship between the supplier or buyer with TradeSafe. This relationship also governs the way how disputes are arbitrated according to by TradeSafe's Fair Trade Policy.

During the problem solving process, TradeSafe collects the facts from both parties, makes proposals for solutions, and tries to reach an agreed and fair solution. If this approach fails, TradeSafe again asks for submissions and makes an arbitrary decision to solve the problem.

Are there risks in sourcing licensed products?
Trade
Copied

Are there risks in sourcing licensed products?

Manufacturers of licensed products need a license from the licensor, e.g. Disney, in order to produce the goods. These agreements are usually granted for a specific region and sometimes limit the distribution channels. As buyer you can assume that the manufacturers and wholesalers have the license to sell the goods; The suppliers on zentrada have to note restrictions already in the quotation. The processing with TradeSafe protects and supports you with questions and problems especially in international sourcing.

If you purchase licensed products directly from Chinese manufacturers and bring them to the European market then you are the importer and need to get a licensing agreement from the licensor.

zentrada only allows suppliers with stock in Europe.
