How does escrow work for digital listings?
Once you purchase the listing it will be marked as processing, the vendor has 48 hours to complete the order by sending the digital item then marking the order as shipped otherwise the order will be cancelled. Once the order has been marked as shipped the buyer can either finalize the order once they have received the purchase, dispute the order if there is a problem or extend escrow if required. If the buyer does nothing once the order is marked as shipped it will auto-finalize after being marked as shipped for 48 hours.
How does escrow work for physical listings?
Once you purchase the listing it will be marked as processing, the vendor has 72 hours to ship the order and mark the order as shipped otherwise it will be cancelled.

If the buyer does nothing once the order is marked as shipped it will auto-finalize after being marked as shipped for 14 days.
How can I become a vendor?
Read the information on the ‘BECOME A VENDOR’ page. You will need to follow the vendor rules and pay the vendor fee. Vendors are required to set up 2FA to secure their account. If you are caught scamming, padding feedback or breaking any other rule your vendor account will be revoked and you could be banned.
Are all listings done through escrow?
The only listings that are not done through escrow are listings by FE vendors. FE vendors are vendors that have been proven to be reliable and reputable.
