The buySAFE Trading Assistant Bond Program

The problem

Now you can feel more secure when you drop off expensive merchandise with a Trading Assistant (TA) or Registered eBay Drop Off Location (REDOL). Many state legislatures have proposed new laws that require TAs to become licensed and/or bonded and eBay now requires bonding for all REDOLS.


This Trading Assistant is Bonded


Why should you select a bonded Trading Assistant?

buySAFE inspects every eBay Trading Assistant's operations and monitors their performance daily to ensure they are of the highest quality, consistently reliable and committed to delivering on the promises they make you.

When you see the buySAFE Seal in the Trading Assistant directory or see it on a Trading Assistant’s listing, you're dealing with one of the most trusted Trading Assistants – and one that complies with eBay’s bonding requirements for Registered eBay Drop Off Locations.

What does the Bond cover?

The buySAFE Trading Assistant Bond is a blanket bond that covers all consignors up to an aggregate amount of $25,000. This means you can feel confident giving your merchandise to a Trading Assistant who is bonded because your item is covered.
