About Us

Probably most importantly, the online space is the protagonist of a new economy in which anyone can become a retailer on their own terms. This phenomenon is in line with global trends and it could play a huge part in alleviating South Africa’s massive unemployment problem.

One estimate is that by 2025, what’s called the ingenuity or DIY economy – which includes small home businesses, buying and selling for profit and modest entrepreneurial ventures – could employ two-thirds of the population, and the online space provides instant, accessible and free promotional platforms for such enterprises.

It is our mission at bid2gro to accommodate such market in a safe and user friendly environment. Creating a platform where sellers/vendors can devise their personal online market place in order to generate a sustainable income while having fun at the same time.

By using our platform you will be able to adapt and manage your sales platform to suite your individual needs. From setting your auction duration right down to bidding increments and reserve prices.

At bid2gro we are passionate about auctions, the atmosphere, sound and even the smell in an adrenaline filled environment. Our goal is to create this authentic vibe infused into the comfort of your home, office or on the go.

Why use us?

Secure Trading

We secure and protect both sellers and buyers by offering an escrow payment gateway with Tradesafe.

What does this mean?

In a nutshell this means once a buyer has won a bid the buyer would make a payment with Tradesafe, either via EFT or with a Debit or Credit card. The money stays secure within this escrow until such time the buyer receives the product and is satisfied with the condition as advertised on the site. Only now the money gets released into the seller’s bank account. For more frequently asked questions go to Tradesafe – FAQ
