Your new features...

Immediate Material Request (IMR)

In the metals industry, timing is everything. We understand that there may be urgent situations where buyers require specific steel or aluminium now. To address this need, we have introduced the “Immediate Material Request” feature on the SteelBuy platform.

IMR or Normal Alert

Buyers can create an alert for an urgent material requirement. This alert is sent to all sellers on the platform, notifying them of the immediate need of an anonymous buyer. It enables buyers to express their urgency, ensuring that potential sellers are aware of time-sensitive demands. This feature streamlines the process of finding and securing critical materials, saving valuable time and preventing unnecessary delays in project timelines, and as soon as there is a match with a seller, the buyer is notified, immediately!

Listings viewed

Sellers are now equipped with valuable insights into the performance of their listed materials. We have introduced the “Listings Viewed” feature, allowing sellers to see the number of times their listed materials have been viewed by potential buyers. This information provides sellers with valuable feedback on the visibility and interest generated by their listings.

By understanding which listings attract the most attention, sellers gain insights into market demand and can adjust their pricing and listing strategies accordingly. This feature empowers sellers to optimise their listings for maximum visibility, increasing the chances of attracting potential buyers and facilitating successful transactions.


Sellers are empowered to do more with innovative features that enhance their trading experience. With this powerful feature, sellers now have the option to automatically renew their material listings, extending their visibility to potential buyers effortlessly.

With Auto-Renewal, you can set it and forget it (you always retain control and will be notified in advance of expiration dates/times), ensuring that your listings remain active and accessible to buyers without any additional effort on your part. This means that your products can continuously attract potential buyers, maximising your sales opportunities and keeping your inventory in the digital spotlight.

Don’t let your listings go unnoticed. With Auto-Renewal, you can maintain a constant presence on the SteelBuy platform, ensuring that your materials are always visible to a wide range of buyers. You can unlist your material at any time.
