TradeKey Launches Pakistan Specific B2B Portal: TradeKey.com.pk

The trend of Entrepreneurship is rising dramatically in Pakistan, though SMEs usually face two major problems: one is the lack of investment and the other is the legal obstacles for market accessibility.

Tradekey.com is a Saudi based multinational company, which is also the world’s second largest B2B Marketplace and incorporates more than 7 million registered members from over 240 countries. In addition to TradeKey.com, the TradeKey Company also has numerous other language and country specific portals.

To start over from scratch, in 2008 TradeKey launched its country-search portal to help SMEs of China, India, Sri Lanka, etc; which were later transformed into separate country portals for each of the countries respectively. Like other national portals, the core objective of launching Tradekey.com.PK is to design a platform where Pakistani SMEs can promote their products by making the most of TradeKey’s expertise in the international market.

Entrepreneurs usually have the idea and energy but not the experience to penetrate in the global market to sell their goods and services. Moreover, when Pakistani manufacturers and suppliers sell their products in Pakistan only, they sometimes conclude that Pakistan is a small market and they need to expand their business and explore new dimensions.

Pakistani manufacturers and Suppliers especially SMEs, with the help of this platform can now explore newer markets for their products without spending a lot of money. Getting new Buyers or buying leads without having to visit a country and participate in a tradeshow abroad, means that international trade is becoming easier and economical for Pakistani Traders.

Summarizing it concisely, TradeKey.com.pk is a B2B marketplace; a B2B marketplace is an acronym used for the portal designed to connect sellers and buyers. A B2B marketplace entertains its users by displaying their products in the relevant categories and bringing potential customers from all over the world to explore these product which results in extensive enquiries for the products listed in that marketplace.

Furthermore, TradeKey.com.pk is facilitating the local SMEs to have their own product-based websites apart from signing up at the website for free! Along with many other facilities they are providing to Pakistani companies and Pakistani products globally, they have also launched B2B chatting software that is pre-installed on the websites so that the owners can communicate, promote, and connect with the visitors present on their websites and facilitate them effectively.

With the launch of TradeKey.com.pk, SMEs from Pakistan will get Key Account Managers who will act as proactive consultants and will support the members in finding new buyers while making sure the whole communication & negotiation process goes smoothly; hence helping in closing orders resulting in enhanced sales.

Pakistani Manufacturers and/or Suppliers with little or no experience with respect to international trade can now export their products all over the world with minimum risk factors. Hence, Pakistani SMEs, Vendors, Dealers, Manufacturers, and Suppliers have this wonderful opportunity to use Tradekey.com.Pk to transform themselves into global enterprises with the help of the entrepreneurial expertise and fruitful resources of Tradekey.com!

    Their Service cost is ridiculous as compare to the service they provide.

    • Haisum Bhatti

      If you calculate cost it takes to maintain an infrastructure like Tradekey’s then service cost will not sound ridiculous.

      • Xahid

        I don’t think their service is as good as compare with Alibaba, & they are slow as hell. even if they improve their service, the cost is ridiculously high.

      • Muhammad Junaid

        Haha… what a joke, I am the creator of E-Consultancy Tool which means we fetch buy offers from Alibaba.com (Vi BOT) and put those Buy Offers into our database and then match those buy offers through E-consultancy Tool, as per seller’s product and then send those buy offers as INQUIRY, so that SELLER (Gold / Silver Members) assumed that this is genuine buy offer but E-consultancy Tool send them, I have LEAD 16 individuals on E-Consultancy Tool and trained them all. More than 60% buy offers are fake, I can prove you @Haisum Bhatti.

  • Muhammed Ovais Alam

    Anything for the ‘service providing’ sector?

    Why this article hasn’t mentioned that Tradekey.com is a Pakistani company. Yes, it’s world’s 2nd largest B2B website but it’s purely Pakistani company. This article is giving an impression that an international company has seen Pakistan as an attractive market and hence launched local version of Tradekey (like OLX.com.pk, Freelancer.pk, Google.com.pk etc).

  • Rafay Qureshi

    Only Pulse TradeKey.com is a Saudi Based company and its Head Quarters is in Riyadh and has offices in China, UK and Pakistan, and its partners are located in various countries across the globe, But it runs its major operations from Pakistan and that is why Tradekey now also wants to focus on Tradekey.com.pk to empower Pakistani Suppliers and Manufacturers.

  • Sofia Zeeshan

    TradeKey is not a Pakistani Company – its a Saudi based venture

    • Only Pulse

      What about this article http://tribune.com.pk/story/275463/tradekey-a-pakistani-david-taking-on-a-chinese-goliath/ in which Corporate Strategy Head of Tradekey says that “We are a Pakistani company competing against Alibaba in China,” The founder & its employees are all Pakistanis. I’m sure that the actual development & marketing is done through its Pakistan’s office only. The head office might be registered in KSA, just like many Pakistani IT companies have listed their head office in the USA.

      • Muhammad Junaid

        I agreed with you @Only Pluse, because I gave my 4 years to them and did not get any thing in the last. They all are Pakistani’s and Jali Mullas who are selling porn related products and said they are Sharyia Compliance.

  • Haisum Bhatti

    Haha now I get you, you probably didn’t get a job there. What was it? you got rejected in interview or they fired you?

    Anyways I don’t think so you ever bought some premium service from Alibaba or Tradekey or own an SME. Your comments don’t contain any quantitative statistics to prove your point. So if people are buying services from them, that means they are getting a return.

    • Zahid Butt

      & I think you are working & representative of trakekey ?

      • Haisum Bhatti

        Nope. I am just defending a good Pakistani company against pointless criticism.

        • Muhammad Junaid

          Good Pakistani Company ? Junaid Mansoor said that they are only Shariya Compliance Company in Pakistan, but I have optimized more than 1000 + porn related product like dildos, vibrators, condoms and much more. What do you say about it ?

  • Muhammad Junaid

    I have worked in Tradekey more than 4 years and the CEO @junaid mansoor is one the big liar in the world who says that Tradekey is the Sharya Compliance company in the world. I totally disagree with him because I have optimized many porn related products on tradekey portal like condoms, vibrators and etc. This is not Tradekey, it’s Junaid Masoor family member’s company like Qasim Mansoor ADMIN Head who does not know the definition of ADMINISTRATION and also other brother’s are working who does not suffcient and technical knowledge about the departments but they are still head……

    Tradekey stealing data from Alibaba also copying their URL structure, categories, KEYWORDS and many other SEO related things. That is why Tradekey Page Rank has down from 7to 6 and now I thin current is 5. Jack Maa said Your employers are important for your company rather than customers.

  • Muhammad Junaid

    Junaid Mansoor is Pakistani Born, the investors are some big Saudi Giants, but Tradekey CEO ne unko bi chona laga dia hy or ik new company open kr li hy jis me all IT products/services are selling, also wheel chair walay project me bi thek thak chona lagaya hy in MULLA Pary ne. Now its turn for Pakistani Suppliers and Manufacturers
