How can you help us to increase our sales?

Your business is unique. We consider this fact in our tailor-made approach. That’s why we offer tailor-made solutions for the optimization and international expansion of your business activities in order to diversify and increase your sales.

What are the advantages your company offers?

We provide a transparent cost structure to minimize risks as well as a complete trade platform, which centralizes your business activities through our advisory services, our transaction marketplace and our integrated PR and marketing system, hence reduces your operational costs and optimizes the operational structure of your business.

Are you interested in buying our products or services?

Yes, we are in general. Please make sure to attach a price list to your catalog or at least give an overview of your business, your terms, price examples.

Can you find a buyer or a seller for our products?

Yes, we can. There are several possibilities to do business. Either we buy your products after evaluating the business case and the supply chain or we find you a buyer (wholesale) or a seller (retail) or a distributor (wholesale). Two other options would be to become a seller on our marketplace yourself and sell your products directly or we can sell (online or offline) your products and distribute them for you. This always depends on the specific products and business case.

How can we cooperate for business?

There are a variety of ways for business cooperation. In particular, we have a great interest in extending the availability of our offerings to a wide range of corporate clients, customers, vendors, manufacturers, sales agents  & representatives, service providers, trade agents, trading companies and investors worldwide, for example through a franchising business model. Our business partnerships are hence for example suitable for journalists, translators, logistics companies, consultants, law firms and financial service providers.

What can we expect from a business partnership with you?

A business partnership is a long-term investment. For this reason, we would like to enter into business partnerships which have a long-term positive effect on our customer satisfaction and the interests of our corporate clients or vendors. A continuing positive relationship with our customers, clients and vendors also will have a positive effect on the business activities of our business partners.

Can you briefly explain what differentiates you from other trading companies?

Sure. Beyond our trading activities, we provide our clients with advisory, a marketplace and a PR and marketing platform to get advice on how, where and what to sell, then to sell it, to present and explain it to potential buyers and the public.

What do you mean by offering a complete trade platform?

There is a huge difference when looking for a separate adviser, a place to sell and a possibility to gain public awareness for your products and your business in foreign trade, in comparison to a complete trade platform which may eventually affect your cost structure and the strategic perspective of your business.

As a customer-centric trading company, we provide advice to our clients on a range of products in different sectors, which they can also sell on our marketplace. That is a unique service so that we can promote our clients’ and vendors’ business and support a systematic approach to selling on our marketplace, while we allow them to communicate directly to customers via different channels, e.g. custom articles on our trade blog.

Do you provide strategic advice?

Yes, we do. Strategies are as individual as each business and its competitor landscape are unique. Our strategies are based on analytics, fundamentals and customized insights to predict realistic business outcomes and to suggest suitable paths to tackle a specific set of problems.

Do you offer management consulting?

Yes, we do in case your business wants to grow on an international level. No, we do not in case you look for a turnaround or seek management consulting to avoid insolvency. For the latter case, there are consulting firms with advanced expertise, especially legal firms.

What do you do better than your competitors?

Our competitors have advantages in certain areas of their specialization as we also do in our fields of expertise, i.e. international trade in particular. Yet, as a general trading company we avoid giving advice solely based on past experiences or business history as markets and business landscapes evolve quickly. Our approach deflects from “tunnel-vision” as we will underline the risks as much as the possible positive outcomes for our clients.

Why is your advice better than the advice from your competitors?

As a trading company with an integrated marketplace, trade advisory is one subsidiary business. Therefore, our advice is not solely based on abstract theoretical models or the analysis of data and statistics, but also from hands-on or practical business experiences and hence we understand the difficulties and risks of growth for small and medium-sized enterprises. Objectivity is our emphasis. We do not give advice solely for the sake of business.

How do you calculate the fees for a project on our behalf?

Our fees are transparent. We only bill for exactly what the clients require. Hence, a working day is 8 hours long and we calculate a percentage of a working day in case the required service by our clients only need less than the full amount of working days.

Depending on the services we deliver, our variable fees may also be based on the total contract volume of goods, products or services or they are billed monthly based on fixed sums. You can receive a quote by contacting us.

Some service components can be purchased directly via Paypal. Please contact us before you pay. See more on fees.

What are the payment terms or how do we pay?

The general payment terms are included in the general Terms & Conditions for trade advisory services. However, as each project must be evaluated on its merits and risks, we offer each client payment terms that minimize risks on both sides and maximize mutual benefits. Payments are usually based in EUR and via bank transfer, paypal or other pre-agreed individual payment methods.

How do we take advantage of your services?

According to your general or specific inquiries, questions, ideas on how and where you want to do business, what business you want to do and what services you require to achieve your business goals, we may make you a binding offer with service fee calculations or explicit estimations for products and services you require beyond what we offer. If you formally accept our detailed written offer with the conditions laid down, we will proceed with a legally binding contract,  i.e. a service contract or another suitable contract including legal attachments, to specify the details of service components and the costs based on the Terms and Conditions for trade advisory services.

Please be aware that we are not obliged to make you an offer, because our offers are free of charge for our clients. We decide on the merits and risks of the specific business, whether we want to make you an offer.

How long do the services take to implement?

We decide case-by-case as it depends on the business, volume and products as well as the current external situation how long a project, i.e. the implementation of a service, will take. Usually, we will fix a deadline once details of the project and a contract will be in place. Prior to a contract we offer approximate dates in our tenders, offers, suggestions etc. if not requested otherwise.

Is the registration for free?

Yes, you can register for free and sell up to ten products without monthly fees. The only fees that apply are a percentage of your sales to be shared with the marketplace.

What percentage of sales do apply for each product sold?

To sell on our marketplace, whether on a free or paid plan, the percentage of sales to be charged depends on the plan and the volume of your sales. Please see for more information on how to become a vendor.

Do I need to have a minimum volume of sales per month?

No, your free plan is not based on the volume you sell but it is free per se. Of course, it is in your best interest to improve your sales and we may help you to do so. Moreover, the higher your sales volume the lower your percentage we charge you per unit sold. Feel free to subscribe to our newsletter to receive suggestions on how to increase your sales.
