Why Buddy


Comprehensive counterparty vetting

We hop on a plane to visit each and every Buddy-verified user so that you don’t have to. We video-document our vetting process so that you get the full picture when deciding who to trade with. Go direct, with confidence.

In-app trading and negotiation

Lightning-fast listings are created and only served to the best buyers. Offers are made in a few clicks, and terms can be negotiated directly. Buddy works to bring the best deals together, but all contracts are between counterparties.
