I cannot even begin to express how infuriating it is to sell on Tradesy. As a seller, it’s a disadvantage. And I have been a seller on their platform for over 6 years with a solid track record! So it’s not like I am a new seller with little selling experience! I can understand that they can hold up to 21 days on accounts that don’t have a strong sales record or history. I am primarily a seller than I am a buyer on their platform, but I sure hate using their platform to sell.
They hold your funds for a ridiculous amount of time, usually literally weeks longer than most other platforms which usually release funds to the sellers within 3 days, which should be the industry standard! Yet, Tradesy is not even up to speed with its outdated, slow system. There is always a long wait for everything, from them releasing the funds, then there’s another week of waiting if you decided to transfer your balance out from Tradesy and into your bank. This is beyond ridiculous. ACH transfer should not take a week, it usually takes about 2–3 days maximum, some platforms I have used process even faster, so if I transfer the balance to my bank in the morning, the funds are usually deposited into my bank account that same night or very next business day! That’s how business should be run and operated!
I swear, I hate Tradesy and I will delete my account once my current listings are all sold, since I still have pending sales where they still need to release my funds, so I will wait until all that is clear. I am so over them right now and would absolutely not recommend their platform to anyone, but especially those who are looking to sell things – there are better options and better platforms than Tradesy!
I simply don’t want others to experience the same frustrations I have, as well as some of my friends who have sold on their platform, who have all deleted their account and I will soon follow as well after I have sold the remaining items on my listing.
Length of Use: 2+ years
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
