During the Agreement Phase of the transaction, the Buyer and Seller would normally negotiate who will pay the escrow fees. Either the Buyer can pay, the Seller pays, or the Buyer and Seller each pay half of the escrow fee.

In the event of a rejection of the merchandise or cancellation of the transaction after funds have been secured, the Buyer is responsible for escrow fees, return shipping fees, and original shipping fee if the Buyer agreed to pay. The escrow fee and any original shipping fees will be taken out of the original payment made to Escrow.com.
