We were the first company to create online escrow over a decade ago. We're leading the way in safe, reliable and trustworthy escrow services and will be for many years to come.

Escrow.com is:

  • Online escrow that is simple and safe for Buyers and Sellers
  • Compliant with relevant state laws
  • Armed with an in-depth knowledge of the escrow process
  • The safest service to trust with your money

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Escrow.com and its operating subsidiaries provide online escrow services that facilitate and accelerate e-commerce by assuring a secure settlement.

Escrow.com has pioneered the process of online escrow services. The Company, founded in 1999 by Fidelity National Financial, has established itself as one of the leading providers of secure business and consumer transaction management on the Internet. Escrow.com was purchased by Freelancer.com (ASX:FLN) in 2015.

All escrow services offered on this website are provided independently and exclusively by Internet Escrow Services (SM) (IES), one of the operating subsidiaries of Escrow.com. IES is fully licensed and accredited as an escrow company and is subject to compliance with applicable escrow regulations, including the California Financial and Business Code.
