    Thanks, Brandon, for setting it straight. So sad that there are people trying to push fake news without any regard for the consequences for businesses with high ethics and the entrepreneurs that rely on those businesses and their services.

    Yes. You can login to your Payoneer Escrow account but you will not be able to create a new transaction.

    In your situation, if they needed more verification, they should have done it prior to you starting another transaction. Same goes for the buyer. The verification should come first before letting them send money.

    Holding you hostage after the fact is ridiculous, especially considering they didn't just start providing escrow services yesterday.

    I'm going to try Sedo Escrow for larger transactions and then just use Godaddy for everything else. There are far too many negatives from the other escrow services that I'll pay the higher commissions from Godaddy just to avoid them completely.

    I totally agree verify first. but in both cases of escrow.com and afternic they will accept funds if you are not verified or even if you are partially verified. So you may have verified but they may need additional info later.
    There are no alerts to your accounts that you need to verify or criteria has changed.

    In this case the seller received a $1500 offer on a $2500 buy it now. While seller was considering within 2 days the buyer decided to buy it at full price at $2500 (seller was dealing with a full reg transfer away from enom)..within 5 days the domain was taken out of his account in enom. Called enom and they said when you sign up to afternic you agree to allow your name to be transfered out of your account without aurthorization (if a name is sold for buy now).

    Funds appeared in the afternic account within 10 days minus commish (around $1950 net) and payment methods were not updated so no payment out could be made

    I agree with you in a perfect world we all check all our auction and marketplace payment verifications every 6 months to confirm they are up to date. More importantly this seller updated this buy it now years ago and forgot it was listed with a buy now on afternic and expected more. So you also have to review all the prices at all the markets for all your domains as well. (think if you were sitting on a ton of premium llll.com when the chinese market exploded and had them listed across 5 or 6 sites) Not an easy task when you have a few hundred or few thousand domains across 5 or 6 marketplaces.

    I have done a few transactions with payoneer escrow and I was very very pleased with everything...now there is only sadness on the horizon..

    Hopefully they will add some new features to payoneer? I know that money can already be transferred between accounts but I have no idea how suitable it can be for domains in terms of chargebacks etc.

    Has anyone tried?

    Payoneer's fees were unsustainably low. It costs money to watch the transactions and make sure there are no issues. Good employees need to be paid as do programmers to make the things that need to happen happen. Stevan

    $40 for international wire payout (SWIFT) is very abnormal.
    I have 15 EUR at Sedo and was 15 USD/EUR with Payoneer.

    the more i think about it the more btc transactions make great sense. you can transfer btc to wallets in 20 minutes...the network fee right now for 1 btc (about $7460) usd is $1.27. however most names sell for under $3k
    .it would be lessthan $4 to send from buyer to broker and from broker to sellers wallet and it would take a total of an hour for all 3 transactions to confirm. we are currently dealing with a large portfolio holder that wont list with us if we force an escrow service that will delay the transaction so we may remove escrow entirely from our global marketplace
