TradeKey.com is a Saudi Arabia-based e-commerce company that provides digital marketing, business-to-business, business development solutions and tradeshow marketing services. It also provides buyer consultancy and industry key account management solutions. The company was founded in 2005 when Waleed Abalkhail and Junaid Mansoor founded the website Tradekey.com, to connect importers and exporters, buyers and suppliers across the world.

TradeKey.com has led the foundation of the e-commerce industry in Pakistan. The portal has many multilingual and country portals which connect local suppliers and traders to do business online. In September 2007, TradeKey.com became the world’s first online business-to-business company that earned ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certification.[2]

TradeKey.com has been cited as a successful option for entrepreneurs in its "All-Star Student Entrepreneurs Report".[3] In 2011, TradeKey.com was named as the 50th fastest Pakistani growing company in the Middle East.[4] In October 2011, TradeKey.com launched a women incubation center to promote women entrepreneurship in Pakistan and other developing countries.

Tradekey has joined hands with the World Bank and the International Trade Centre to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Tunisia, Morocco, and Jordan. The project began in July 2014 but officially started in October 2015.[5]
