Is this a Marketplace?

No, AdBaazi is an Ad Listing platform for serious buyers and sellers across India. Our platform allows potential buyers and sellers ( B2B or B2C) to post their requirements on our platform.

These are visible in forms of text, images or videos. That’s where our role finishes. Once the Ad is live, depending on the content and market outreach of the ad, you or any other potential buyer/seller can contact the person/company who has posted the ad, and engage in a discussion on your end.

To facilitate conversation, we do provide in-built messaging service to registered users.

AdBaazi, never or will never, ask for any payment from any buyer or seller to perform a trade or anything that a marketplace does, because, we’re not a marketplace 🙂
