Invoice, Then Check or Wire Transfer
We prefer to use an escrow service; however, due to new, burdensome government verification requirements, we can issue you an invoice for the domain name, then you make payment to Edgeware Inc. via check or wire transfer, finally upon receipt of funds we will transfer the domain name to your preferred Registrar Account.
We prefer to use escrow.com and escrow.domains to protect all parties in the domain name transaction. Escrow.com accepts all major credit cards for purchases up to $ 5,000 USD and accepts wire transfers for purchases greater than $ 5,000 USD. Escrow.domains requires payment via wire transfer. All of our transactions involve a reputable third party, escrow service. Your funds are released only after you have successfully taken control of your new domain name.
If paying by wire transfer, payment must begin within 3 days of the start of the escrow process. The Name Transfer Process is controlled by the Registrar holding the name and with our Names For Sale it usually takes 7 to 10 business days. Our Find Me A Name Service can take 7 to 10 business days when transferring to a GoDaddy Account or it can take up to 60 days when transferring a name outside of the current registrar. For example, if the name you are purchasing is located at GoDaddy, having your new name transferred to a GoDaddy Account will significantly speed up the transfer process.
The Escrow Process:
Step One - You select the Buy It Now Button* and start the escrow process by completing your contact information. Buyer and Seller agree to the terms of the transaction. Then you submit payment to a reputable third party escrow service.
Step Two - The Seller transfers the domain name rights to the Buyers Registrar Account. Buyer pays the Registrar an annual fee to retain your rights to the domain name.
Step Three - Buyer confirms the transfer and the escrow service releases the funds to the Seller and/or Edgeware Inc., parent of namegent.com.
Cancellation Of An Escrow Transaction:
In the unlikely event of a cancellation (after funds are received at the escrow service), or the rejection of a domain name, the Buyer is responsible for the escrow fee regardless of whomever (Seller, Buyer or Broker) is set up to pay the escrow fee.
* Duplicate Buy It Now Purchases:
In the unlikely event that two parties purchase the same Name via the Buy It Now Button on the namegent.com website, the first party to initiate the purchase via the Buy It Now Button will have priority for the Name. If any escrow fees occur to the second-place party, namegent.com will reimburse the second-place party for all escrow fees, but we will not reimburse the second-place party for any other fees and expenses.
We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You provide us with your payment information, we add a 3% Convenience Fee to the Buy It Now Price; we confirm both parties obligations via our Sales Agreement, including a confirmation of Your Transfer Information; you sign the Sales Agreement and Mail / FedEx an Original Sales Agreement to NameGent. We then have a 30 Day Escrow Period after which we will Transfer the Name to your preferred Registrar Account; you confirm via email the Transfer has taken place. Transaction is complete.
