  • What is an escrow service?

    Escrow is a defined process whereby a buyer puts money into the custody of a trusted third party with a guarantee that funds are available for payment to the seller after a specified set of conditions has been met. We chose to partner with Escrow.Com, who is the world's leading online escrow service, to provide this service.

    It's very simple. Buyer deposits funds into escrow. Seller ships item to Buyer. Buyer approves. Escrow.Com's escrow service pays seller. Its that easy.

    What are the benefits of using an escrow service?

      For sellers:
    • Protection against credit card fraud, insufficient funds and credit card chargebacks.
    • Sell to buyers who prefer paying by credit card without getting a merchant account.
      For buyers:
    • Receive and inspect the stuff before your payment is sent to the seller.
    • Send credit card information to a trusted source rather than to a stranger.
