Negotiating through Exporium helps guarantee that you are protected under our Terms and conditions. Additionally, it makes it easy to find and reference important trade details like a contact’s address, your trade history, delivery details, and other useful information. We cannot provide these benefits if you agree a trade is not close through Exporium.
Negotiating outside of Exporium also makes it harder for us to protect your information and puts you at greater risk of fraud and other security issues, such as phishing.

Whether you are a producer or a buyer, an Exporium account is an opportunity for your potential counterparties to get to know you before they decide to contact you. When you have a strong profile, other people will feel you are reliable and the more complete your profile is, the higher the chance that you will receive requests for trades.
We require all participants to upload a photo, so you can see who you are dealing with.
- A verified profile
- At least one profile photo that shows your face
- If you are a producer, certificates that testify the quality of your products
- If you are a seller, show more photos of your products
- If you are a buyer, show what your selling areas are
If you want to see a person’s profile, you can just click on their profile photo.
- First, you need to register and complete your profile.
- After the verification process is completed, you can login and start using the platform.
- You can search for potential business partners on Marketplace.
- You can find details about them and their products by clicking on their profile and in the product details.
- You can then start negotiating by clicking on Add to Cart. The other party has 72 hours to react to your offer, and there are three rounds of negotiation.
- Once you agree on the price, you will both agree on the delivery and payment method.
- After that, every step should be confirmed on the platform by the trade parties.
At Exporium, we do not impose procedures but we give the possibility to find the best agreement between you and your counterparty.
If you need support in finding a shipping and logistics partner, we will do our best to help.
In any case, we will contact you to get more information and give you the chance to rectify what is missing.
