What is an Escrow Account?
An Escrow account is like a “prepaid account” which you can fund for a predetermined use. An online escrow service helps manage the completion of a purchase between two parties who don't know one another. Escrow serves to hold funds, as a kind of collateral for transaction between buyers and sellers thus helping to guarantee the safety of the products and items being traded.
MyBidMonster.com has integrated an escrow system where a buyer can fund their online account for a particular purchase before the seller can release the item, and use the funds to pay for the product they won or are buying.
How do i fund my escrow your account?
Members can fund their escrow account by using different payment gateways available and accessible to them from thier part or region of the world, including credit card ( from the payment gateway), local bank transfer and other payment gateways under a secured and safe trading enviroment. For payment options, please visit Payment Gateways for more information. Members would also be able to make deposits into MyBidmonsters Online Tradings bank account and have their accounts credited with the amount paid.
How does the Escrow account work?
For the Buyer:
The buyer on winning the auction is prompted to fund the escrow account equivalent to the cost of the product. The seller is notified that the buyer has funded the escrow account and ships the product. Buyer receives and inspects goods before releasing the money to the seller. Seller is paid at satisfaction by the buyer.
For the seller:
Seller verifies and confirms that the buyer has funded the escrow account for the product through email or sms notification. The seller then ships the product and awaits response from buyer who recieves the product, inspects and approve before releasing the funds in the escrow account.
These processes happen almost simultaneously. This helps to build confidence between the parties concerned.
