The strategy: All product information necessary for a decision is to be made available for input and sellers must be transparent.

Products that can be traded on the marketplaceEach individual product is represented by an advertisement on the marketplace. You can therefore not present product lists. The product information includes a general product description, but also specific information about the batch, specifications or availability. It must also be indicated whether the goods are regular goods, a surplus stock or out-of-spec stock. Minimum order quantities and prices are also relevant.
Regular raw materials and ingredients
Producers or Distributors can use the marketplace as an additional sales channel.
SurplusOn the marketplace, in addition to regular raw materials and ingredients, you can also post your surplus stock for sale. This is so far unique in the industry. Valuable raw materials that are no longer needed can be advertised and sold directly. This way they can be reused, which not only saves on disposal costs, but also generates revenues. Often only small quantities of a raw material are needed, minimum purchase quantities are too high. Buyers can solve the problem by selling the unused quantities as overstock on the marketplace. Chem2Market thus not only solves an existing problem for both perspectives, but also makes a significant contribution towards the sustainable use of valuable raw materials and resources in the industry.
Necessary product informationThe motto here is - the more the better. A lot of accurate information about the product increases the probability of sale and transparency. This creates security and trust. From general information to batch, INCI, CAS number or condition of the raw material, everything can be specified. Documents such as specifications, certificates of analysis or technical data sheets should also be uploaded. Also important is information about delivery conditions, active ingredients and their percentages, colour, solubility and country of origin. Other names and synonyms can also be included, which also increases visibility in the marketplace. The delivery area, Information about dangerous goods and other relevant information and estimated delivery time should also be indicated.
Tags (keywords) & categories
To post a product it must be assigned to a category. Functions or properties of the raw material can be specified by tags at a later stage. Here, the specification of several tags is possible.
raw materials can be set with prices (recommended). As on every market place, negotiations about prices are possible. This is then marked with the abbreviation VB”. The price negotiations take place in direct contact with the provider via the platform.
Chem2Market works on a commission basis. A 5% commission on the sales price is charged for a transaction (excluding shipping costs). This commission is paid by the seller, so it must be taken into account in the selling price. It is also possible to place products without price. IMPORTANT: All prices are to be understood ex works. Transport, customs, Taxes and all other additional costs are to be agreed upon individually after the order.
Product ads with images are more often viewed as those without visual support. The desired motif is e.g. the plant origin, the product as such or a packaging. Products with a logo or similar cannot be activated.
Labelling of branded products
Branded products on the marketplace must be marked as such. The symbols ™, ® or © are simply inserted after the name of the product.
In this way the participants can immediately recognize that the product is a branded product. In addition to transparency, this also serves to secure the brand rights.
As mediators, it is important to us to represent and fulfil the interests and expectations of both parties. Our goal is to build trust and security in our actions.
In the course of quality assurance, all product advertisements and messages are checked for reliability and completeness. These are then either activated or rejected. A refusal is justified and suggestions for improvement are made. The communication between buyers and sellers is also moderated. Thus we can protect all users of the market place from dubious inquiries and messages.
