    Hello,

    Recently, I sold a domain, but had one issue. In the auction I put a clear description for payment. It is Paypal from members with 3+ positive reviews.The winner (last bidder) suggested to pay through escrow service with fee on my side. I asked a moderator if it breaches the rules and got an answer, that I had to proceed the sale.
    I am curious if it is correct decision. If it is correct, the buyer can select any expensive escrow service and fully demolish the sale price. Fortunately, in my case it was not very expensive, only 5%. But it could be Sedo. What do you think about it?

    Hello,

    We just finished reviewing your case after it was brought to our attention.

    It was determined in our (2nd moderator team to investigate the case) review that the buyer Bid in an auction and did not meet the sellers specified guidelines, voiding their bid.

    A first time rule reminder was sent to the buyer to help prevent incidents like this from happening again.

    You call the shots in your auction not the bidders.
