Sedo's Domain Escrow service offers a secure financial intermediary for both sellers and buyers.

Step 1: Receive a Domain Sales Contract

Both parties receive a sales contract which is professionally drawn up to suit the needs of domain or website sales. The sales agreement can be reviewed and agreed to from within your member account. 

Step 2: Payment to Escrow Account

The buyer places the funds in Sedo's Escrow account via wire transfer, Paypal, or credit card (credit card only for transactions under $500).

Step 3: Technical Domain Transfer

Sedo works with both parties and their registrars to quickly and securely transfer the domain. Through our large network of registrars we can ensure the most efficient transfer possible.

Step 4: Payment to Seller

Once Sedo can confirm that the buyer is the owner of the domain name, we remit the funds to the domain seller and the transaction is finished.
