How to buy?

It's simple, start by browsing the ads on our network and once you find an item (car, spare part, equipment) that is in your interest, simply use the contact buttons in the ad to get in touch with the owner via email or phone (if provided), you will find them on the right side floating while you slide down on desktop and on the bottom of the page.

Secure payments

We have partnered with trustshare to enable you secure escrow payments in 186 countries.
Escrow is a method of payment where seller and buyer are checked and verified before money is held by a trusted third party until the purchase has been safely completed. Giving complete peace of mind and protection to both parties.
We recommend using escrow for every transaction done online, especially for acqusitions where you don't see the item in person, like smaller spare parts, gearboxes and similar, to avoid any inconveniences such as ordered item not arriving or not in state as agreed. With escrow, your don't have to worry.

Who can use escrow?

Anyone and for any transaction, regardless of its value. Whether you are buying a race car, a spare gearbox, a set of tyres or a helmet, trustshare will help you avoid scammers with their strict seller verification process and in case the acquired gearbox on delivery still turns to be just a "box", your money is still safe with you, as you only release it to the seller once you receive the goods and confirm that they match the agreement. Complete peace of mind for every acquisition, who wouldn't want that?

What are the main benefits of escrow for the seller?

  • 1. Know who you are transacting with. Everyone’s identity is verified to ensure they’re a genuine user.
  • 2. Avoid last-minute cancellations. Buyers are charged the transaction fee when they make the transfer. This reduces the chances of the buyer changing their mind and cancelling the purchase.
  • 3. Get paid on time! When the item has been delivered, the buyer must release the funds if the agreed terms have been met.
  • 4. Visibility of funds. See in real-time when funds are transferred into the dedicated escrow account. So that you can set up shipping and contract exchange with peace of mind, without a worry that buyer is just wasting your time.

How to use it as a seller?

Create a payment link for the buyer inside your racemarket user panel (trustshare tab), insert your email, agreed amount and item title. At the bottom of the form, you will receive a link that you send to the buyer to start the secure escrow payment. After the amount is deposited by the buyer, you will be contacted via email by trustshare with details on how to proceed. Check this video for a visual walkthrough.

What are the main benefits of escrow for the buyer?

How to use it as a buyer?

Ask the seller to provide the link to start the escrow process and deposit the agreed amount. You will be informed by trustshare of all following procedures to finalize the process, including verification phase. Then you can discuss with the owner about the delivery or pickup and once the goods are safely with you and as described, you release the money from the escrow account to the owner.

Where is my deposit held?

Your money is held in a protected, safe-guarded bank account. This will be with Barclays in the UK or Crédit Mutuel Arkéa in Europe. A safe-guarded account doesn’t generate interest because even the bank can’t use your funds for investments, it’s that well-protected.
