Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I recently approached the owner of a domain via email about buying the domain.
We have agreed a price but now I am wondering how to go forward as there is a pretty obvious risk of getting ripped off.
As I've never bought a domain from somebody who has already registered it, is there any advice anybody can give?
Buyer pays escrow the agreed fee
Seller sends domain to buyer
Buyer inspects the domain and has 2 days or more
Buyer instructs escrow to pay the seller if the buyer is happy.
Escrow does charge a fee but this is worth the piece of mind.
