Escrow.com is escrow service of choice for over half of domain investors.
Escrow.com has once again been selected by domain investors as the top domain name escrow service.
In the seventh annual Domain Name Wire Survey, 60% of the more than 1,000 survey respondents said Escrow.com was best.
Here are the top 5 escrow services, as rated by survey respondents in January:
1. Escrow.com 60%
2. Sedo 11%
3. eCop 9%
4. Moniker 9%
5. EscrowDNS 6%
Earlier this year Escrow.com announced that it had completed $1 billion in transactions since it was founded.
Here’s a cost comparison of the various Escrow services in the top 5:
$5,000 domain sale
$75,000 domain sale
I have sold my first two domains and brokered a third using the Escrow.com service, all domains were .co.za.
Escrow.com support is great and the steps of the transaction work, I hope to use Escrow.com again soon in the future.
escrow.com has screwed up deal after deal after deal for me. it’s a nightmare to buy a domain through them. faxing stuff in, they don’t get your emails, you have to resubmit the entire thing when they can’t find your fax or email, they can’t even run a simple credit card properly. i’m amazed this company is even in existence.
they should survey buyers. i bet they would rank the worst.

@ jimmy – what does running a credit card have to do with being a buyer?
I have used Escrow.com for several recent sales. With a couple, it took them a little longer to secure payment. If this was because of due diligence on Escrow.com’s part, then more power to them. I don’t want a chargeback and nor do they. Their interface is clear to use, and they paid lighting fast by cheque (I’m in Canada). I would absolutely use them again (and I voted for them too),
Adam Dicker says
I have been using escrow.com for over 9 years without any issues at all.
They run a great service with low risk to domainers.
Just wanted to point out that a new online contract, escrow and dispute resolution site was launched recently. The service is called EqualFoot.com (www.equalfoot.com), where parties can safely enter into any contract on equal footing.
Pretty much any contract involving remuneration can be entered into using the service, from sale of goods (products, imports/exports, domains, etc.) to provision of services (home improvement, construction, software development, etc.). The service includes a calendar too where users can track deadlines and deliverables, and includes the ability to upload documents, images, plans, etc. to track progress. Multiple contracts for a single project can be grouped together for easier management and organization.
Try EqualFoot.com the next time you need to enter into a contract and/or require escrow services..
