What is Flippa’s Escrow?

Flippa’s escrow service makes the asset transfer process between buyers and sellers easier than ever! Our escrow process is powered by our friends over at Assembly Payments, an accredited escrow provider who handle millions of dollars in escrow transactions worldwide.

As a buyer on Flippa, you’re able to choose a variety of payment methods, including credit card or bank transfers.

As a seller, you can set where the payment ends up, whether it be your PayPal account or personal checking account.

With a streamlined user-interface connecting both parties together, we’ve built escrow to be as fast and secure as possible, minimising the delay between when a payment is sent and when the payment is received.

If you have any questions, our support team is just a click away!
