I see lots of good stuff I would like to buy on TB but more often than not the US based seller doesn't want to ship internationally which is completely his/her prerogative. I was wondering if there was a way we could setup a TB member ONLY escrow service that would allow US shippers a safe and hassle free way to sell internationally and vice versa.. I know there are quite a few TB affiliated bass stores who should definitely consider offering an escrow service to all TBers. They would obviously charge a fee for their involvement, usually a percentage of the price (capped at different levels). I would personally be happy to pay and extra %2 or so for the piece of mind that I will definitely get my bass. The Escrow Agent will obviously have to be someone very trustworthy, honest and organized. For those who are not familiar with an escrow service here is a rundown of my plan: 1. Buyer and Seller Agree to Terms. Both parties agree to terms of the transaction, which includes an exact description of the merchandise, sale price, number of days for the Escrow Agents inspection, and any shipping information. 2. Buyer Pays Escrow Agent The Buyer submits agreed amount plus escrow fee to Escrow Agent. Escrow agent then contacts Seller and tells them they have the money. 3. Seller Ships Merchandise to Escrow Agent. Upon payment verification, the Seller is authorized to ship merchandise and submit tracking information. Escrow Agent receives goods, verifies condition is exactly as stated in initial agreement. Escrow agent confirms goods condition with Buyer and forwards payment to seller. 4. Escrow Agent Ships Item to Buyer. The Escrow Agent then safely packs and ships the item to the buyer (submitting all tracking information, waybills etc). 5. Buyer gets Item. And it happy knowing the item will arrive as described This is just an idea and Id love some feedback on any way to improve the method or any problems that could arise..
