The buySAFE Trading Assistant Bond Program
For eBay Trading Assistants who want to:
  • Beat the competition & increase revenue
  • Attract more valuable consignment merchandise
  • Appear first in TA search as a featured Trading Assistant
  • Meet eBay’s REDOL insurance requirement for carrying a $25,000 bond
the problem

Not everyone feels completely safe dropping off expensive merchandise with a Trading Assistant (TA) or Registered eBay Drop Off Location (REDOL). Many state legislatures have responded to this need by proposing new laws that require TAs to become licensed and/or bonded and eBay now requires it for REDOLS.
