An escrow is a financial and legal agreement designed to protect Buyers and Sellers in a transaction. For a fee, an independent third party (Escrow.com) holds payment until everyone fulfils their responsibilities in the transaction.
With an escrow payment, the Seller will only receive the funds when the Buyer has received and accepted the products and/or services that are part of the transaction. However, the Seller knows they will receive payment because Escrow.com is holding the funds on their behalf.
AppSally supports escrow for certain services only and we charge a fee for using escrow.
