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