At bidorbuy we constantly improve on functionality, features and services to improve the selling- and buying experience.


While we currently have seller verifications, ratings, SNC-processes, fraud-checks, community watch and buyer protection, we will embark over the next few months on a number of initiatives to improve the perception on trustworthiness and reliability.


As a start we have signed up with Web of Trust which is a community driven environment where participants rate ones trustworthiness, vendor reliability and privacy.


We have undergone reviews of all aspects of our website and will display the WOT Trust Seal prominently on our website to make it more visible that a users online experience on bidorbuy.co.za is safe, trusted and reliable.


Some clarifications on the different rating components:

The first component reflects the overall trustworthiness of the site: Can it be trusted? Is it safe to use? Does it deliver what it promises? A poor rating may indicate Internet scams, identity theft risks, credit card fraud, phishing, viruses, adware or spyware. A rating of "unsatisfactory" indicates that the site may contain annoying advertisements, excessive pop-ups or content that makes your browser crash.


Vendor reliability tells you whether the site is safe for buying and selling, or for business transactions in general. An “excellent” rating indicates superior customer service, timely delivery of products or services and overall customer satisfaction. A "poor" rating indicates possible fraud or a bad shopping experience.


Privacy tells you whether the site has a privacy policy that protects your personal identity and data. For example, does the social networking service you use give you the means to determine what is public and what remains private? Does the site have opt-in privacy options? A "poor" rating indicates concern that your data may be sold to 3rd parties, be stored indefinitely or be turned over to law enforcement without a warrant, etc.


Child safety indicates if the site contains age-inappropriate material. This includes mature content meant for adults: Content depicting nudity, sexual content, violence, vulgar or hateful language or content that encourages dangerous or illegal activities.


We invite you to visit our scorecard and provide us with your feedback and your experience:
