What is the history and popularity of the app?

Overall, Tradeshift has been welcomed with a positive response since it was founded in 2009. The application officially launched in 2010. Since then, users have noted a few areas that are lacking that could use improvement. Tradeshift requires users to download individual apps, which can be a bit inconvenient. Users cannot add images of products or custom formatting to text fields, either. Users can create a simple invoice using Tradeshift, as long as they do not plan to add too many customizations.

What are the differences to other apps?

Tradeshift has many appealing options that make it a good choice for some businesses. Users can stay in touch with contacts and view payment status, which is definitely a good thing but not an original function. Tradeshift can handle many of the same tasks that other, similar applications can however it is entirely web based and very economical. Users who don’t mind a somewhat bare bones invoice can really appreciate what Tradeshift has to offer.

Tradeshift keeps everything neat and tidy so nothing feels out of place. That means the entire experience remains professional as the user builds and sends invoices.

Tradeshift may be somewhat limited, but it is definitely not lacking in the area of convenience.

A small note below the button advises the user that by submitting their information they are agreeing to the Tradeshift terms of service and privacy policy.
