What is Export Portal’s Blockchain?
Blockchain itself is a sort of decentralized ledger technology, allowing connected parties to distribute data without risk of it being corrupted or hacked.
International trade involves so many parties sending so many documents between one another, most of it crossing multiple borders and time zones, that even small errors can cause massive confusion for everyone involved, leading to costly slowdowns while attempts are made to correct the issues. Of course, this is when procedures are being run legitimately, as illegal operations take full advantage of cumbersome supply chains and paper trails in order to mask their fraudulent actions.
As such, blockchain technology is the most efficient solution to innovating the international trade industry. Export Portal is developing our own proprietary blockchain network so that buyers, sellers, shippers, and manufacturers on our platform can easily and efficiently track and manage their transactions. Not only will we be able to avoid miscommunications, but we will also preserve accurate data for our experts to review, thereby identifying key problems and developing solutions in a more timely manner.
Increasing transparency and accountability between our registered members is just one of the many ways Export Portal is achieving our goal of improving the import export industry.
How is Export Portal different from other trade hubs?
What sets Export Portal apart is that our platform is designed specifically around the education and expansion of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME).
While other Trade Hubs may offer a platform for international traders, they often charge substantial fees while providing little in the way of legal assistance or member protection. However, Export Portal seeks to connect SMEs from around the world with each other and with the resources they need to expand their businesses.
Not only do we charge lower fees, but we are also developing blockchain technology to provide our members with the latest innovative tools to perform their operations at peak efficiency. Our B2B Partnership Matchmaking algorithms will also create solutions to common networking issues and provide greater opportunities for all our registered members across the international trade industry. However, Export Portal’s services go beyond simply streamlining the supply chain. Our platform has systems in place to directly assist our members in every step of a transaction from beginning to end, so that even inexperienced entrepreneurs can navigate their way to building a better business. In addition to maintaining easily accessible data between all parties in one place for ease of business, our team of experts also assist in the creation of marketing strategies for our members’ products to help them capitalize on select demographics and maximize profits on niche merchandise.
On top pf all that, our partner association Exima (add hyperlink https://exima.com/en#about ) offers access to legal experts and trade specialists, so developing companies can keep up to date and stay protected in an ever-changing industry like trade.
Through the combination of all these services, resources, information, and expertise, Export Portal is able to not only stand above other trade hubs, but to give SMEs the platform they require to stand out in the import export industry.
What sort of security does Export Portal offer?
Export Portal offers a variety of security services and procedures in order to protect our members. First and foremost, by uniting all parties and their information on one platform, we limit outside interference and therefore cut down on the majority of potential errors that threaten more complicated deals. Through the use of our proprietary blockchain technology, we are capable of preventing illegally distributed data, falsified information, fraudulent practices or accounts, as well as general loss and theft that other global trade hubs cannot correct. In addition to offering increased accountability and transparency, our partnerships with accreditation institutions across the globe ensures that only verified professionals gain access to our protected ecosystem, and that all payments and transfers are protected for your peace of mind.

How does Export Portal support Small and Medium Enterprises (SME)?
Export Portal offers a wide variety of useful resources to help SMEs expand their businesses, as providing solutions to common problems they face is what our business is based around. Although SMEs contribute so much to the global economy as a whole and their local economies in particular, on their own they so often lack the resources and funding needed to perform as efficiently as they could. The tools and services our global trade hub provides its members helps them to avoid fraudulent companies while navigating the complex procedures involved in working with legitimate businesses.
End to end transactions are typically costly endeavors, but Export Portal members avoid overpaying third parties when conducting international transactions on our platform, as our ecosystem offers hand holding support throughout the entire transactions process. We do more than simply give them a platform to stand on, we reinforce them with expert advice on a variety of subjects in our blogs, offer access to legal specialists when requiring their services, provide a B2B Matchmaking Algorithm to assist in connecting with the most lucrative partners, help members save on marketing through our own promotions programs, and all immediately available after completing a simple and smooth onboarding process.
By enabling SMEs to seize opportunities they couldn’t take advantage of on their own, their success goes on to influence their local economies, such as hiring more staff and thereby improving the employment rate in their region. It is through assisting on small scales that Export Portal and SMEs can play their role in improving the world.
How does Export Portal support Niche Markets?
Export Portal’s extensive search categories and country-targeted classifications ensures even the most specific products can be located by those who seek them, assisting entrepreneurs to capitalize on niche markets.
What partnerships does Export Portal have with accreditation institutions?

What partnerships does Export Portal have with financial Institutions
Export Portal is continuously building connections with international financial institutions to assist in our 100% Escrow Payment Guarantee (1EPG) program, which safeguards the payments involved in transactions on our platform. In addition, we are always seeking venture capitalists to invest both in our platform and the members who utilize it. Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) face a 56% trade finance rejection rate, meaning many are unable to secure the necessary funding to hire more staff or purchase more resources when approached with large orders they cannot complete at their current size.
By bringing third party financial institutions into our network, we can connect eager banks, financial institutions, or loan processors with the parties in need of their capital, thereby increasing operations and portfolios for all involved. What’s more, our blockchain ecosystem will ensure all documents and payments are trackable and accounted for, preventing fraud while also securing all data for analysis afterwards.
What do freight forwarders gain from joining Export Portal?

Our legal team takes utmost care when handling these sensitive documents, checking them through the relevant government databases of the country in which the business claims to be based.

What is the difference between being Verified and being Certified?
Verified sellers and manufacturers have had their submitted credentials authenticated by our team and are granted access to transact with other buyers, sellers, and shippers on our platform. In order to maintain a high level of professionalism on our global trade hub, all members must be verified before they can conduct any business.
Certified accounts pay a fee and submit additional documentation which, once authenticated, enables them access to a greater amount of services and benefits. These benefits include featuring their products on the Export Portal main page and social media accounts, as well as advanced portfolio options like itemized production capacity and company development/expansion planning, and Priority Pass, a feature which grants their orders and support requests higher precedent in the Export Portal pipeline.
Additionally, certified accounts receive an exclusive Export Portal asset package containing logos and badges to place on their account pages as well as their personal websites and social media. The badges will have a custom number unique to the certified account, allowing customers who see that number outside export portal to enter that number on our site and quickly locate the certified account it corresponds to.
Features like these increase browsers’ trust in certified accounts, attracting both wider customer bases as well as broader B2B partnership opportunities, which is perhaps the most important benefit of certification. Don’t let your business get left behind, apply for certification today!
