Why Should We Pay Online?

With dozens of other payment options available such as checks, drafts, money orders, and electronic bank transfers, one may wonder why so many people use this new method of payment. Indeed, the older payment methods are tried, tested, and a lot more comfortable for some people.

However, online payment offers exclusive advantages that other payment options don’t. When paying online, you can easily use your credit card to process a transaction much faster than the check-and-stamp method. Automated payments also mean that there are no delays or late penalties. Contrary to popular belief, it is much safer to conduct your transaction online as everything is documented, and there are no sensitive details on paper.

Online payment eliminates clutter by, in some cases, eliminating the need for paper bills that require filing. It makes organizing and keeping track of payments easier and more convenient. Finally, if using online payments, many banks will provide graphs and information that help you track your spending and keep your budget on task. There are many types of transactions that can be made online, everything from paying your phone bill to purchasing small gifts for family members. For larger transactions, though, you may want to seek the services of an escrow company.

By putting your money into an escrow account, you can protect yourself from fraud.

Payment Options

The escrow system offers many types of payment options including wire transfers, checks and money orders, credit cards, and PayPal.

Payment types may have certain limitations, however. For example, credit cards and PayPal are subject to additional fees and have a maximum of $5,000 while checks and money orders have a $2,000 maximum and are subject to a ten business day hold.

♦The Buyer then transfers the agreed-upon amount into their Escrow account.
♦As soon as the transfer is complete, Escrow notifies the Seller, who then commences the formalities of packing,  shipping, and insuring the PPE.
♦The Seller ships merchandise to Buyer. The Buyer can then track their purchases from the moment they leave the Seller’s shipping facility, to when they reach the Buyer’s door.
♦The Buyer accepts the merchandise. On receipt, the Buyer will inspect the PPE, making sure they are exactly what they ordered and in good condition.

How Escrow System Works for Brokers

Escrow offers Brokers the ability to begin, manage and close every sale simply and privately. First, the Broker begins a three-party transaction on Escrow, and all parties must agree to the terms of the transaction.

After the transaction is created, the Buyer will submit their payment to Escrow.com. We will verify the payment and let the Broker and Seller know that the funds have been secured. Upon payment verification, the Seller is authorized to send the PPE and any tracking information. After, Escrow will verify that the Buyer has received their merchandise and notify the Broker.

Finally, the Buyer has a set number of days to inspect the merchandise purchased and has the option to accept or reject it. When the Buyer accepts the merchandise, Escrow.com will proceed to pay the Broker and Seller.
