3PS Neutral 3rd party shipment and payment

3PI3PS Neutral 3rd party shipment and payment provides you with security your materials will be delivered and paid for or in the worst case retrieve your materials or money. 3PS works with a neutral yard to which buyers can send their materials. The goods will be checked and stay blocked until the seller has received the payment. As soon as the seller has received the payment the goods will be released and shipped to the buyer. The seller has the security he will receive the payment or remain owner of his goods. If the buyer and seller cannot find an agreement on the quality of the delivered goods the seller will retrieve the delivered goods. This solution gives buyers and sellers the opportunity to work together without expensive common payment conditions like credit insurance, L/C’s, CAD through bank or insecure (pre)payments.
