What does “QCEscrow” mean?

A QCEscrow is a financial and legal agreement designed to protect Buyers and Sellers in a transaction. For a fee, an independent third party holds payment until everyone fulfills their responsibilities in the transaction.

With a QCEscrow payment, the Seller will only receive the funds when the Buyer has received and accepted the products and/or services that are part of the transaction. However, the Seller knows they will receive payment because Escrow.com is holding the funds on their behalf.

How does QCEscrow.com work?

QCEscrow.com reduces the risk of fraud by acting as a trusted third-party that collects, holds, and only disburses funds when both the Buyer and Seller are satisfied.

  1. Buyer and seller agree to terms. Either the Buyer or Seller initiates a transaction. After registering at QCEscrow.com, all parties agree to the terms of the transaction.
  2. Buyer pays QCEscrow.com. The Buyer submits a payment by approved payment method to our secure QCEscrow Account, QCEscrow.com verifies the payment, then the Seller is notified that funds have been secured “In Escrow”.
  3. Seller ships merchandise to Buyer. Upon payment verification, the Seller is authorized to send the merchandise and submit tracking information. QCEscrow.com verifies that the Buyer receives the merchandise.
  4. Buyer accepts merchandise. The Buyer has a set number of days to inspect the merchandise with the option to accept or reject it. If not approved, the Buyer will raise a dispute and enter the dispute resolution process.
  5. QCEscrow.com pays the Seller. If the merchandise is accepted, QCEscrow.com releases funds to the Seller from the QCEscrow Account.

Frequently Asked Questions

QCEscrow.com has added PayPal as part of our premier payment options.

A Buyer can send funds from their PayPal account by choosing the PayPal option on the transaction screen. This offers the convenience of PayPal with the protection of QCEscrow.com. Either the Buyer or Seller must have completed a transaction before and the transaction amount must be less than $5000 USD in order to use the PayPal option. The transaction must also be in US Dollars and, where applicable, online trackable shipping must be used to track delivery of the goods.

QCEscrow.com only accepts credit card and PayPal payments for Premier Service transactions. Please note that Premier Service transactions are limited to a maximum 5000 USD/AUD/EUR/GBP (per all active transactions). In addition, QCEscrow.com has strict policies governing the acceptance of credit card and PayPal payments. Below are some common reasons a credit card or PayPal payment may not be accepted for your transaction:

  • Your total amount paid in the last 6 months via credit card or PayPal exceeds 5,000 USD/AUD/EUR/GBP (where you are the Buyer).
  • The total amount paid to you in the last 6 months via credit card or PayPal exceeds 20,000 USD/AUD/EUR/GBP (where you are the Seller).
  • The transaction does not involve shipping to the credit card or PayPal confirmed address.
  • Information provided to QCEscrow.com is determined to be incorrect, or, in certain situations, when we cannot reach you at the phone number you provided in your account profile.
  • Our transaction security team detects certain fraud indicators for a transaction.
  • QCEscrow.com also limits credit card use when it involves certain merchandise. This merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the following: Time sensitive goods (i.e. tickets), software, services, website content, watches, jewelry, cellular phones, currency, gift certificates, clothing, art, designer products, wedding dresses, signed items, vehicles, live animals, transactions where we cannot determine what merchandise is being sold, and items where we cannot confirm delivery.

QCEscrow.com may refuse to allow a credit card or PayPal as payment for any reason at our sole discretion. Any rejection of credit card or PayPal as a form of payment is not necessarily determined by information provided by the cardholder. We apologize if we are unable to accept a credit card or PayPal payment for your transaction.

The Buyers and Sellers determine which party is responsible for the escrow fees.

The Buyers and Sellers can agree to one of three payment options below:

  • Buyer pays 100%
  • Seller pays 100%
  • Buyer and Seller each pays 50%

When a Buyer pays all or half the QCEscrow Fee, then the fee will be added to the upfront or initial payment from the Buyer. When a Seller pays all or half the Escrow Fee, then this fee amount will be deducted from the disbursement amount due the Seller.

Cancellation or Rejection of Merchandise or Service

If the transaction is (1) canceled after the funds have been approved by QCEscrow.com, or (2) the merchandise or service is rejected by the Buyer, the Buyer is responsible for 100% of the Escrow Fee and return shipping fees, even if the transaction originated as the Seller paying 100% or 50% of the Escrow Fee. This is because Escrow.com deducts the Escrow Fee when returning the original payment to the Buyer.

Selecting Escrow Fee Payment Set-up

The party initiating the transaction has the opportunity to select who pays the QCSscrow fees and the payment option, and the other party can choose to agree to this arrangement or elect to modify the Escrow Fee payment.

While most transactions are completed within 1 to 20 business days, transaction timelines are still unique to each transaction and depend on the steps below. You can estimate the timeline of your transaction below:
