Safeli.ng is Reimagining Ecommerce and Freelancing
Once, I ran an NGO in a city. I needed to make T-shirts for my team. I did a little surfing on the internet and found an interesting piece. I contacted a vendor who also agreed to brand the Ts with my organization’s logo. He asked me to show some commitments by paying part of the money upfront, which I didn’t see as a problem. The moment I made the transfer, it all ended. He blocked my number and my accounts on all platforms.
I know my story sounds familiar. Unfortunately, many people cannot be trusted to deliver on their words. You may have had a similar experience or something close. You may have gotten something inferior to what you paid for and couldn’t get even because the vendor already has your money. While we shouldn’t cry over spilled milk, we can ensure it never happens again.
According to Stanley Imoisili, founder and product manager of Safeli.ng, “People change all the time. It’s just better be safe than sorry when sending money online”
Safeli.ng is up with a solution to eliminate buyer payment challenges. Now what is Safeli.ng actually? Safeli.ng is a blend of escrow-based e-commerce and freelancing designed by Nigerians for Nigerians. It is registered in Nigeria and London. You may have known what escrow service is all about but in the event that you do not know, I’ll tell you. Providers like Safeli.ng hold money in trust between buyers and sellers until both parties fulfill their own sides of a contract. This is what Safeli.ng brings to you in a grander style. Why should you use Safeli.ng?
Safeli.ng supports transactions for a host of products ranging from automobiles, real estate, machinery, electronics, fashion products, and services, etc. It works in a few simple steps. First, you need to sign up on Safeli.ng with your email address and a password you can just create on your own. After signing up, you can create a contract, detailing what product or service you want to buy or sell.
If you have a customer in mind already, you can simply invite him or her to the contract. If you don’t have anyone in mind, you can simply wait and an interested person will indicate. Once you agree with the person on pricing, then you can pay in the agreed amount with a little service charge into Safeli.ng, who’d keep the money until the seller delivers. As soon as the seller delivers and you are satisfied with what you paid for, notify Safeli.ng and they’ll transfer the money directly into the seller’s account.
The best part is that all of these steps take place within a very short time. If both parties to the contract are online when the contract is being initiated, it might take just a minute to get completed. The platform is so easy to navigate that anyone who uses social media will be able to use it without difficulties. The design is also sleek, giving the user great eye relief. More so, Safeli.ng has a team of customer support staff that works around the clock to answer any question you might have concerning the platform.
Another exciting perk about Safeli.ng is that it allows you to complete transactions using multiple payment options. You can pay via cards, mobile money wallet, direct bank transfers, or QR codes. You can also pay using different currencies, such as naira, dollar, pound, euro, etc. Safeli.ng has wonderful communities on Telegram, Medium, and YouTube where you can join in with other users and do business safeli. You can find links to these at the bottom of the webpage.
With the online marketplace becoming a battleground for ‘what I paid for’ versus ‘what I got’, there’s no better time for Safeli.ng to be born than now. With a swift, secure, and reliable platform like Safeli.ng, the challenges associated with buyer payment can be put to sleep permanently.
