The Philatelic Traders’ Society is delighted to announce that they have partnered with HipStamp to help highlight trustworthy sellers on this global philatelic platform. The initiative means collectors will be able to clearly see the PTS Shield against listings from PTS members so that prior to bidding or purchasing, collectors can buy with the knowledge that the seller has been vetted thoroughly by the leading international trade society, the PTS.
The PTS Shield is synonymous with not just trust and integrity, but with a membership community that cares about the future of the hobby. The membership fees paid by our members allows us to offer them a wide range of benefits, but also to invest in projects aimed at supporting the philatelic trade and future-proofing the hobby.
The Philatelic Traders’ Society was established in 1929 and is the only trade society that extensively vets, references, and actively monitors members. All members must comply with the PTS’s Code of Conduct. We have some of the world’s leading brands as members including top HipStamp sellers Mark Bloxham Stamps, Cherrystone,1st4stamps, Samwells and Hardham Stamps.
The PTS has robust processes and a highly experienced team of philatelic advisors so if a HipStamp Member feels they have been treated unfairly, we invite them to reach out to the PTS for advice. Likewise, if a HipStamp Member wishes to share their positive feedback from their shopping experience with one of our PTS Members, they can add a recommendation to the PTS’s Online Member Directory at https://www.thepts.net/members
PTS Chairman, Simon Carson comments: ‘We are delighted to partner with HipStamp and are excited about the opportunities this presents our PTS Members to stand out as philatelic professionals, and for collectors to shop safe. This is not just about the transaction itself; this is about the relationship between reputable dealers and passionate collectors – from professional advice to active fulfilment of want lists.’
HipStamp’s Anna Taylor comments: ‘We are proud to showcase the PTS Shield on HipStamp, and to be working more closely with the PTS and its Members on new ideas to make buying and collecting experiences on HipStamp even more rewarding.’
