Hello there, I just signed up with Tradekey. Just wondering if anyone has heard of them or used them to find suppliers? If so, could I get some feedback as my email inbox has been flooded with quotes and suppliers looking for my business. I noticed many of them are from China. What is the difference between a silverkey member and a goldkey member? How about this trustpoints? I'm assuming the gold members and those with high trust points are reliable, right? Please help, it would be appreciated. Thanks

Don't assume anything when it comes to sourcing sites, most of these things like gold members and so on are paid for by the seller, it buys them instant credibility.

The site itself is like all other sourcing sites, it will have good companies and it will have scammers packed to the walls, so it is up to you to do research on every individual supplier you are interested in doing business with.

The reason you are getting slammed with emails is because you have posted a buying lead, and those emails won't stop. Every company that either supplies, knows of someone that supplies or even supplies something remotely related to the information in your buying lead, will be trying to promote their details to you.

Thanks!!! thats' what I thought... Of course I could pretty much find alot of the scammers in the process of building a realtionship and reserching certain companies that look more legit, but time will tell. I guess i better go on the site and change settings. That way i'm not checking e-mails all day. Also Fudji do you supply for buyers? and if so could you contact me. Again thanks and any further input would be appreciated.

Yea Fudjj is right lots of scammers.

My opinion has always been to visit Asia or use a buyer agent.
