Introduction to trading safely on RapNet

Your safety and security are paramount and RapNet is committed to providing the safest and most secure diamond trading platform that we can.

We are not prepared to compromise our members' security and do not want to create an enabling environment for thieves.

Email has proven to be very insecure. Members have lost thousands and sometimes tens of thousands of dollars due to emails being intercepted by thieves.

With the RapNet Trade Center and Messaging features, we have engineered a safe alternative to email, and a significant improvement to the way members communicate, from initial interest to agreement, and invoice.

  1. Use Trade Center to contact buyers/sellers and manage your trade from within RapNet. Please refer to these Trade Center Articles to learn more. This Trade Center Blog includes videos on how to buy and sell using Trade Center

  2. On Trade Center, you can directly message the buyer/seller via the Messaging feature. Messaging is fast, and works in real-time and seamlessly across the website and the mobile app, so you can easily and quickly communicate with other RapNet members.

Contact the RapNet Seller

Once you've found the diamond you want on RapNet, click Contact Seller, type in your price offer and conditions, and hit Send.

Your offer moves to Trade Center so that you can chat negotiate, and send/receive invoices securely and efficiently.

The Seller receives notification of your offer and will correspond to you inside the Trade Center.

Once you have both agreed on a price and Sale terms, click ‘Agree & Sign’ and wait for your invoice.
