Security Tips

To protect your escrow funds we require that you take the following precautions:

  1. Do NOT send bitcoins to a bitcoin address you received via email
  2. You must verify your email address and the escrow details on BigEscrow for each transaction
  3. We do not send the escrow's payment address via email
  4. If the confirmation email goes to your SPAM or Junk folder it's most likely a spoofed email
  5. Always confirm your transaction exists on our website, and ALL details are correct
  6. Contact us immediately if you have any suspicions

How It Works

  1. Buyer or seller start an escrow transaction
  2. Buyer and seller confirm their email and bitcoin addresses
  3. Buyer is sent a link to a secure BigEscrow page showing the bitcoin payment address
  4. Buyer sends bitcoins to the escrow's bitcoin address
  5. Seller sends item(s) to buyer
  6. Inspection period begins when buyer receives item(s)
  7. Bitcoins are released to seller (or a dispute is started)
