Update: I no longer do escrows. Past users can still contact me.Free Escrow Service (small transaction fee required)
Note: I can take up to 24 hours to reply or release escrows. Please be patient, I usually view severe urgency as a fraud attempt and will prolong releases.New:
Use my escrow service on Bitrated using multisig for a small transaction fee of 0.002
(there is a 1% penalty if a dispute arises). With multisig, I can no longer steal your Bitcoin. Also, buyers can release and sellers can refund without my intervention. Registration is required however.https://www.bitrated.com/trade/new?agent=bitpophttps://www.bitrated.com/bitpop
No multiple buyer or altcoin escrows. Bitcoin only. I'm one of the oldest members here and I don't do it for the money. Please do not PM me unless urgent.
I provide a free escrow service. My fee is currently 0% but a small transaction fee of 0.001 is required
(sent to me, in addition to the miner's fee not sent to me, non refundable). Tips are accepted. Don't let the other party tell you I changed the address, use the one I issued. Beware of accounts impersonating me, always verify the PGP signed address!
Even if you are buying something directly from me, I will still conduct a proper escrow, meaning a PGP singed address and the coins won't move until you accept delivery.
I'm willing to hold the Bitcoin as USD at Coinapult if you don't want volatility, both sides must agree. The fee will increase to 0.002 and you'll get deducted the Coinapult fee.
On the event that any problems arises, I will release the escrow to whichever party that presents me with the most convincing proof after an open discussion with others. I do not take sides. During your escrow, make sure to document exactly what signifies a completion or not of your deal. You cannot add a new condition after escrow unless both sides agree. Conditions posted and simply ignored by the other party shall be enforced as silence shall be construed as acceptance.
I like to be very transparent and public. Make a special thread for all of us to post in so there's nothing private except personal information. This way it's all in one place in case a dispute arises. Use a board where edits aren't allowed. I aggressively protect both buyers and sellers equally, no matter who contacted me first. If one side disappears, refunds are held for 7 days in case they had an emergency.Escrow example:
Buyer sends to ADDRESS PROVIDED
Seller watches address, no need to contact me, just watch for 6 confirmations and correct address on Blockchain.info
Buyer confirms delivery to me
Seller provides his address and escrow is released

For a quick release, both sides should PM me with the release address (buyer should get it from seller) and original transaction ID once ready. With consensus I can avoid digging through all the messages.Feedback
