About Escrow.com and eBay

eBay has partnered with Escrow.com to help facilitate all payments for watches sold for $10,000 or more on eBay. This enhanced offering is designed to drive both Buyer and Seller confidence while providing U.S eBay users with even more security for these high-value transactions.
A long-time leader in the luxury watch market, eBay houses one of the largest inventories of new, vintage and pre-owned contemporary and fine watches in the world — including brands such as Patek Philippe, Rolex, Omega, Breitling, Audemars Piguet, and Panerai. Combined with zero buyer fees and highly competitive pricing, those looking to buy a preloved luxury watch online can find the exact watch they want, at the right price.
This formidable partnership serves to strengthen security by reducing the risk of counterfeit and replica watch sales in the pre-loved luxury market.

Escrow.com's Process on eBay

All watches sold by U.S Sellers that sell domestically for $10,000 or above require payments to be facilitated by Escrow.com, providing a secure fully traceable payment method, with the most trusted licence escrow service providing protection for both buyer and seller.
  1. The Buyer Initiates a Watch Purchase for $10,000 or more on eBay. Browse eBay’s luxury watch marketplace, find your favorite piece, and start the transaction.
  2. The Buyer funds an account with Escrow.com. The Buyer funds the escrow account. Escrow.com then verifies the payment is received and notifies the Seller. All escrow service fees are covered by eBay.
  3. Seller is notified to ship the Watch. After payment verification, Escrow.com notifies the Seller to ship the watch and upload tracking information; Sellers are required to provide digital tracking and insurance for all shipped items.
  4. Buyer Receives Watch. Once delivery is confirmed, the Buyer has a 7 day inspection period to accept the item.
  5. The Seller is Paid by Escrow.com. Once both parties are satisfied with the transaction, Escrow.com will release the funds to the Seller. The transaction will be complete and Escrow.com will send out closing statements to both the Seller and Buyer.

Benefits of the eBay and Escrow Partnership

The partnership between eBay and Escrow.com was solidified earlier this year in July. In order to enhance the luxury watch shopping experience, eBay covers any fees charged by Escrow.com for use of their service when purchasing eligible watches. The Escrow.com experience ensures both parties’ payments are protected and professionally handled.
