 Escrow.com: 
  Use with a seller accepting returns. Also recommended for international transactions.

What It Is

Safe, secure service that holds funds in escrow until transaction is complete. Buyer is able to return the item, for any reason, during an agreed upon inspection period.

How Buyers Are Protected 

Buyer and seller agree to an inspection period.  Within that time, the buyer verifies the item is received and as described in the listing. If it doesn’t match, it can be returned to the seller.

How Sellers Are Protected

Escrow.com verifies the buyer’s funds before approving seller to ship item.

Should the item be returned, the seller must receive the item back and confirm its condition before funds are returned to seller.

 

 How It Works
  1. Buyer and seller agree on a sale and create Escrow.com agreement outlining their terms (including the length of the inspection period)
  2. Buyer sends money to Escrow.com/ seller sends item
  3. Buyer receives and accepts/rejects item
  4. Escrow.com releases funds to seller/ back to buyer

Fees

  • 3.25% for standard service, for transactions $5,000 and under
  • For a $1,000 gown, the fee is $32.50
  • Buyers and sellers can determine who pays the fee or if it is shared

Getting Started

Buyer or seller initiates the transaction directly on Escrow.com

(Both must create a free Escrow.com account)

 

Tips

  1. We recommend a 48-hour inspection period.
  2. Buyers can only pay with check (which take up to 14 days to clear) or wire transfers (for which your bank may charge an additional fee). Credit cards are not accepted for apparel purchases.

 

Remember, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com never recommends payment with personal or cashier's check, wire transfer or western union. With these methods there is no buyer or seller protection.
