It's all about trust.
I figured out that trading for BTC is similar as trading for money.
Trust and confidence are in charge! Wink

I don't suggest you to use a website for escrowing. It is better to use in-forum escrowers.

A list of escrowers can be seen here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=855778.0.

There are many scams happening around us so its better to play safe. I suggest to use escrow services as it is safe and trustworthy. Y should we pay our hard earned money to those scammers its better to be smart and wise before investing in anything. So Prevention is always better than a  cure.

Its better not to trust anyone online because the biggest threat would be the same that you have faith in someone and he will cheat you this goes with personal life also and internet is ocean of information so cant afford to trust anyone So its better to play safe.

How can I provide escrow services to users here so that I can start gaining some trust? I want to break out of this noob reputation...not to mention I'd like to put my honest morality to some good use.  I have proof of honest sales made on eBay and reddit, but not much besides that :/

People generally only accept escrow services from trusted, well-established members of the community. Nobody would accept an escrow service from a newbie account because of the high amount of risk involved - the escrow might run away with the funds.

If you want to build your reputation here, you should be active and write constructive posts, and you should trade slowly as your rank increases. Eventually, you will have made enough honest sales that you will have built a strong trust profile and will have a good reputation, but this will take time and effort.

Thanks for the response.  Where do you recommend I start gaining reputation?  I'd prefer to start off with small amounts, not only because I don't know who to trust, but for reasons you've brought up about my current standing.  Thanks again, highly appreciated!

Why would you want to be an escrow? It's a pain in the ass and hardly worth it if you're trying to earn BTC.

Well said dear friend. Thank you for the information, as a newbie, I'll keep that in mind since I'm probably going to be heavily involved in trading.

It definitely is hard to build trust. And for good reason. My company, Gray and Sons, has already completed one transaction through the forum, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1036436.0 , and another person made a fake account called qraysrolex and tried to scam money from a potential customer. Everyone be careful and trade with caution. We are doing as much as we can to show our authenticity. We have a real store with 20 real employees, and a real showroom in Miami Beach Florida. We're just starting to accept Bitcoin and it hasn't been easy so far.

I agree. I have watched your posts since you started and it was painful at first watching you get lambasted with scam accusations.

As you know, it's because you are selling luxury goods, so yes, you need to build trust, in fact, you really need someone from the Default Trust group to vouch for you so you have a bright green trust rating. Wink

Anyhow, keep on keeping on , watch the scams and don't get discouraged. Hell, I live in a place where 99% of the people never heard of bitcoin, you are lucky actually - play it wisely and well. Smiley

Cheers and love the watches , even as a poor guy! Smiley

Agreed, I personally did not set out to gain trust, But it was hard to get noticed without escrow, But now I have trust I do not charge for my escrows, I believe it's the DUTY of a trusted member to help people trade, not a charged service!

Be honest and eventually, you can be an escrow. FWIW, I don't recommend you to become an escrow. It is a painful work.

I've heard it's always a good idea to get an escrow if you're working with people offshore, but I think it's a good idea whenever you're working with someone new. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
