    Anyone Use Escrow.com ?
    Everyone knows paypal sucks especially for service transactions. Anyone ever try broker.com? Seems to me to be the best solution to protect both parties, not just the seller like paypal does...

    This 'Everyone' disagrees wholeheartedly. PP offers better buyer AND seller protection than most any merchant service. Payments received are available immediately. This is crucial for businesses that do a lot of dropshipping. With the 1.5% kickback, fees are competitive with other merchant services' online rates and there are no monthly fees. I've used escrow.com for receiving payments for domains, but nothing else. It seems that this service would be way too cumbersome to use for day to day retail sales.

    I'm stating for service transactions paypal only protects the seller. As someone who has done consumer software consultation, I know the rules. If you are buying a SERVICE do NOT use paypal

    Escrow.com, an accredited escrow company, acts as a secure third party to protect the Buyer and Seller.

    How Buyers are protected:

    Escrow.com confirms with the Buyer and verifies the service was received.
    The Seller isn't paid until the Buyer accepts the service, or the inspection period expires.

    How Sellers are protected:

    Escrow.com confirms when the Buyer receives the service.
    The Seller is authorized to deliver the service only after Escrow.com verifies good funds.

    Sounded more like a commercial, huh? I'm pretty certain I know how the service works...

    Yeah, with Escrow.com it's what a lot of domainers use for higher price transactions usually. GoDaddy uses them as well for transactions above $1500 I believe, if you're buying/selling thru their Auction system.

    I just recently used Escrow.com for a $xx,xxx sale. Paypal is a good service and I trust them but that would have been one heck of a fee. What I liked about Escrow is that you can decide who pays the fee or split the fee.

    I selected to get paid by check and the day after the sale closed the check was in my mailbox...

    I would definitely use Escrow again for any future transactions.
