What is an Escrow Service?
An escrow service is a process by which a third party (the escrow agent) holds assets on behalf of two other parties that are processing a deal. The escrow arrangement offers the parties involved a method of protection against bad transactions.
Typically, in a transaction, one party purchases a product or service and the other party will supply it. In many transactions, there is no guarantee that respective parties will honour the agreement made. This could result in no payment or no delivery of goods and services – which is where an escrow agent comes into play.
Escrow agents hold these assets only releasing them once they receive confirmation from the parties that the transaction is complete, and all obligations have been met.
