    Dear AGN Classified Users

     

    In light of PayPal’s decision to no longer cover “airguns” under their Goods & Services guarantee, we’ve been working on ways to help keep your experiences positive and safe. 

     

    On the back-end we are working on developing and implementing a new powerful technique to identify and block known scammers.

     

    On the front-end we would like to share an alternative method of payment.  The following is some basic information that we extracted from one of the top-rated online escrow services: 

     

    Escrow.com is an affordable way for payment transactions to take place between numerous parties. The service ensures the needs of the Buyer and Seller are treated with equal importance, and both parties receive equal levels of protection throughout the entire process. Should a dispute arise, we take a careful and considerate approach in helping both parties reach a fair and agreeable outcome.

     

    Often, the cost of using escrow is cheaper than other popular payment methods, such as credit cards or PayPal.

     

    Because Escrow.com holds onto the funds while the goods are being exchanged, both the Buyer and Seller are protected. The Buyer is given the opportunity to inspect the merchandise before they release the funds. The Seller is also protected from any unexpected chargebacks.

    Escrow.com reduces the risk of fraud by acting as a trusted third-party that collects, holds, and only disburses funds when both Buyers and Sellers are satisfied. Getting started with Escrow is easy, and using the platform is simple.

     

    Simple 5-step Process:

    1. Buyer and Seller agree to terms – Either the Buyer or Seller begins a transaction. After registering at Escrow.com, all parties agree to the terms of the transaction.
    2. Buyer pays Escrow.com – The Buyer submits a payment by approved payment method to our secure Escrow Account, Escrow.com verifies the payment, the Seller is notified that funds have been secured 'In Escrow.'
    3. Seller ships the merchandise to the Buyer – Upon payment verification, the Seller is authorized to send the merchandise and submit tracking information. Escrow.com verifies that the Buyer receives the merchandise.
    4. Buyer accepts the Merchandise – The Buyer has a set number of days to inspect the merchandise and the option to accept or reject it. The Buyer accepts the merchandise
    5. Escrow.com pays the Seller – Escrow.com releases funds to the Seller from the Escrow Account.

    The transaction is now complete – safely and securely!

     

     

    Airgun Nation is not affiliated with Escrow.com, we will not act as a broker to your transactions, nor do we take any responsibility for your transactions.  However, we have spoken to several members that have used this method and they have been very happy with it.  It looks like Escrow.com’s current fees are about 3.25% up to $10,000.

     

    Please note that “firearms and munitions” are not covered.  As we all know an airgun by law (USA) is not considered a firearm, nor are lead pellets or BB’s that have no primer/combustible components.

     

    We suggest that you provide as many details as possible without using the keyword “gun” in the description.  You may also want to download (for reference or disputes) screenshots of the ad and any pictures within the ad.  Example:

     

     

    Escrow services have been around for a long time, but more recently they have gained popularity with online transactions. 

     

    We are hopeful that escrow services like this will offer an extra level of protection when buying and selling your airgun related equipment.

     

    Stay safe and good luck with your transactions!
