Once you reached agreement a contract is produced which is passed to Escrow.com for settlement. Escrow.com provide secure facilities to protect and oversee the Domain Name transfer process.

Once the Whois lookup reflects the new owner, Escrow.com will transfer payment to you less our trading and their Escrow fees. Escrow.com may also make a further charge if you choose a non standard form of payment.
Our Trading Fee is 5% of the transaction amount, which is paid by the Seller. In addition the fee schedule for the Secure Escrow Service is as follows. Normally the Escrow fee is paid by the Seller although arrangements can be made for this to be paid by the Buyer or for the cost to be shared between the Buyer and Seller.
3.25% of the transaction amount with a minimum charge of $25.
