Escrow.com, the world’s most secure payment system for cars, boats, aeroplanes, domains or anything of value, launches in Australia, introducing Australian Dollar capability for online escrow payments


Escrow.com, the leading provider of secure online payments and online transaction management for consumers and businesses on the Internet, has launched Australian Dollar capability to its escrow service, offering a safe and secure sale for local both buyers and sellers transacting big-ticket items.


Escrow.com can be used for secure transactions involving any item of value, including domain names, vehicles, machinery, aircraft, space station hotel deposits or anything that a business or an individual might want to buy or sell safely online.





Escrow.com, which has safely processed over US$3.5 billion in transactions with its secure escrow service, acts as a trusted third-party that collects, holds and only disburses funds when both a buyer and a seller are satisfied with a transaction. It is ideal for transaction sizes from $100 to $10,000,000 or more.


Now, for the first time, merchants and online marketplaces in Australia have the ability to tap into the security and power of Escrow.com, ensuring safe transactions for buyers and no chargebacks, ever, for sellers.


“Escrow.com has already made a name for itself in other markets, delivering unprecedented safety and security for online transactions, thanks to the escrow process, which sees funds kept in trust until all involved parties are satisfied with the deal,” said Escrow.com General Manager Jackson Elsegood. “With the launch of Australian Dollar capability, buyers and sellers in Australia can now make the most of what this escrow process has to offer.”


Escrow.com’s Australian Dollar launch comes just weeks after the launch of Escrow Offer, the easiest way to introduce the power of price negotiation into online platforms. This followed the release of Escrow Pay, which lets businesses integrate the protection provided by the powerful Escrow.com API directly into their websites, mobile apps and online marketplaces.
