im just wondering when the best time is for them to give me the ftp password. he has said the best time is after he has received the payment from me.
this seems fair to them because if I had the domain & ftp password before I had accepted the deal I could theoretically download the content and then reject the deal.
but is it secure for me? what if they do not give me the ftp password? or delete the content after I accept the domain transfer? im sure they wont do anything like that, but I just want to make sure im doing it the right way, and ive not used an escrow before.
THEN you go back to the Escrow service and complete the transaction meaning the seller will have the funds transfered to them at this time.
Thats the way I have done it in the past.
I worked in escrow for 6 years and that was our job. To ensure both parties involved did what they were supposed to do.
Yes, escrow should hold the information until the transaction is final then pass the info.
If the seller does some "shady" stuff during the close of escrow, they can be held liable for any damages or financial loss.
