What are "Only Buyer" companies?
"Only Buyer" companies are on a xChange Trading membership with limited functionalities.
As the name already tells, they can use xChange only to buy containers. All selling-related features like uploading a supply listing or searching for demand listings s are disabled.
"Only Buyer" companies pay a 3.85% service fee for every transaction they have on the trading marketplace and they cannot switch off payment handling
To save on the service fee we recommend upgrading to a full account once you buy containers for more than 10 000USD.
Can I trust "Only Buyer" companies?
All companies go through a strict vetting process before they can join the platform. Among other requirements, the company registration and a passport copy are needed.
Since "Only Buyer" companies can only do deals with payment handling through xChange there is no risk for sellers to sell to them.
