When the transcation has done, you will be able to see your escrow from [My Profile] page as ‘Pending’ status. (If you don’t see it, just refresh the page.)

And you’ll wait the seller’s approvement or rejection. If seller doesn’t answer the request, you are able to cancel the process by clicking [Action] > [Cancel/Reject].

If buyer clicked to [Confirm Delivery], escrow status will become ‘Completed’ and locked money will be funded to seller (1% fee taken). If buyer clicked to [Dispute], status will become “Dispute” and both sides need to take action* for it (check below).

Status Descriptions:

  • Pending: A new escrow waiting to confirmation/rejection.
  • Ongoing: Escrow accepted by both sides, waiting sellers delivery.
  • Delivered: Seller delivered the service/product.
  • Revise: Seller improving the service/product.
  • Cancelled: Escrow was not completed successfully.
  • Completed: Escrow completed successfully.

*Either/both of the parties might not be honest in making the deal — and this might result in locking up of one’s money in the escrow until the issue is resolved by involvement of legal authorities. If anything goes wrong; you will send us your evidence of the issue by e-mail or support ticket. We’ll check them and decide that who is honest/right. If the case is not clear/certain, we can apply to professional consultants if you are okey to pay the costs. If you don’t want us to apply consultans, you’ll need to sue the buyer/seller. After the case is clear, we’ll refund the money to seller/buyer.
