    Is this form script code for the button secure? I haven't used form code for quite a while since I use Google forms now.

    But, it looks like I can copy someones code onto my site. Change the code price and buy the domain name. Or does the value come from saved data in the Escrow database? If this is the case why pass the parameters in from the form?

    <input type="hidden" name="price" value="2300">

    I am probably wrong. Any coders out there that can correct my fears.

    Thanks.

    This would be the same as someone randomly setting up a transaction with you for a certain price manually. With the buy it now buttons you still need to accept the offer.

    Thanks. I have not followed through with an Escrow buy transaction yet and can only see the buy now page showing the Escrow Create an Account with item description page. The item description data comes from my website buy now button form passed parameters. Once buyer creates an account do I the seller get a notification?? I still don't like the button form passing the buy price value. Someone could copy my code and have some fun sending me $2 buyers for a $10,000 domain name.

    The seller will get an email once the transaction has been setup.

    @Matt Barrie I'm playing around with Escrow API + Wordpress plugin. Do we need to have Tier 2 or 3 verification to use API, even in sandbox mode? It returns 401 error (user requires to be authenticated).
    Many thanks

    It looks like you don't need to create a button on escrow.com (I may be wrong) and can simply edit your own or anyone else's html code (which you can get by viewing source on your browser) and change the price, domain name and even sellers email address. Anyone can do this using Notepad, and then copy code to your webpage. Is this a secure way to do it? I did it and changed email address and domain name to example.com but could have been Crypto.com etc. and a price of just $10 (value="10") See below:
    Code:
    <form action="[URL]https://www.escrow.com/checkout[/URL]" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="type" value="domain_name"><input type="hidden" name="non_initiator_email" value="[EMAIL][email protected][/EMAIL]"><input type="hidden" name="non_initiator_id" value="123456"><input type="hidden" name="non_initiator_role" value="seller"><input type="hidden" name="title" value="Example.com domain"><input type="hidden" name="currency" value="USD"><input type="hidden" name="domain" value="Example.com"><input type="hidden" name="price" value="10"><input type="hidden" name="concierge" value="false"><input type="hidden" name="with_content" value="false"><input type="hidden" name="inspection_period" value="1"><input type="hidden" name="fee_payer" value="split"><style>@import url([URL]https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:600);.EscrowButtonPrimary.EscrowButtonPrimary[/URL]{background-image:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAG8AAAALCAMAAABGfiMeAAAAolBMVEUAAAD///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////.....
    P.S. End area of escrow pay code was not copied so code should not work if used (I assume)..

    What are the legal challenges of someone selling my domain name for value=100. Buyer is sent to the Escrow web page with my domain name itemized for sale. Buyer a fortune 500 company with lots of lawyers commits to buy my domain name but I do not accept since I did not publish my domain for sale at value=100? Can I prove that the fake code doesn't come from my website but the fake website?

    Quick question about this - am I able to use the concierge service for a domain transaction for a better chance of it being completed without issues with this new button option? I assume yes but it's always better to ask first.
    Thanks.

    In the event someone copied your buttons and changed the price, we would email you asking to agree to the transaction. If the price does not match the price you set on your buttons, you wouldn't agree the transaction and it would get cancelled.

    But what stops someone from replacing email in the code with their own email address who may also have escrow.com account under that email, so you then send transaction agreement to the altered email which goes to the 3rd party, who then agrees to the transaction? The price, domain and email should be hidden from view in the public accessible code, imo.

    Nigeria was among the accepted countries right before escrow was sold to freelancer. It was reversed after the acquisition. I almost lost a sale due to this, thanks to @promo who made sure everything went fine.

    I still wonder why they can't review their policy on that considering the fact that there is a verification process. I don't know about the Freelancer angle though, since Freelancer allows Nigerians on their platform. But again, Freelancer projects are usually low-cost, mostly ranging from $10-$1000.

    Thanks for launching Escrow Pay. It has excellent usage potential and is very easy to implement.

    This thread is about Escrow Pay not about Nigeria and other nations with high online fraud and scams. P.S. "I am the wife of the deposed Nigerian President and sister of the Oil Minister and I am also related to the Prince. I have 20 million USD I need to get out of Nigeria fast and asking you if I can send these funds direct to your US Bank account. When you get the $20,000,000 USD just wire $19,000,000 back to my account and keep $1,000,000 USD for your kind help. All you need to do is first send your US bank account info and $3,000 by Wire or Bitcoin to show your good faith."

    Anyone today can just go to the main escrow.com website and try to set up a transaction with you for anything, you would still need to accept and decide to ship the merchandise before any transaction would be binding.

    Then they are trying to transact with someone else and not you!

    Yes for certain transactions you need to be verified in tier 2 and tier 3 even in sandbox. The benefits of each verification level are displayed when a logged-in user clicks the 'Get Verified' tab on our site. In order to get verified in sandbox, please go to our integration helper in the sandbox API documentation and follow the instructions: https://www.escrow-sandbox.com/integration-helper/docs/verification.

    Please message me if there are still issues after following my directions above.

    I disagree with you. This thread is for everyone, not just for US members. Nobody force you to do business with other nations.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Adding a button is very simple with the instructions on escrow.com
    I added the button to some of my domain-landingpages.
    Example: www.strongblockchain.com

    To clarify, there is no need to submit any documentation to get verified in sandbox. The integration helper will get you verified using a couple API requests that are shown in the link I posted above.
