The Procedure

In a nutshell, Epik will receive and hold funds from the Buyer, then receive and hold domain(s) from the Seller. Upon consent of both parties, Epik will deliver domain(s) to the Buyer and distribute the funds to the Seller's account.

You may want to use Epik Domain Name Escrow if your transaction:

  • Requires personal broker attention
  • Involves trading domains
  • Has custom terms not covered by the Epik Marketplace

Epik Domain Escrow can handle both domains residing at Epik as well as domains registered elsewhere. All external domains must be transferred over to Epik's control as part of the escrow process.



In most cases, you may achieve the same result of Epik Escrow using the Epik Marketplace Simply transfer the domain into Epik, list it for sale and give the offer link to your Buyer. This will save you the Epik Escrow fees.

Fee Schedule

The standard escrow fee is 1.5% of the transaction amount with wire transfer payment, 2.5% of the transaction amount with BTC crypto payment, 3.5% of the transaction amount with other crypto payment and 5% of the transaction amount with credit card payment.

Domain Trades

A service in which Epik Escrow shines is Domain Trades. In any type of transaction where domains change hands in both directions, a trade is enacted. Example: Alice gives domain foo.com plus $5,000 to Bob in exchange for bar.com.

In the event that the transaction includes a Domain Trade, Epik will objectively appraise the domains involved in order to calculate the transaction total and escrow fees.

Cancellation Policy

Both parties have the right to cancel the transaction without penalties until the escrow is concluded. If the Buyer has already submitted payment, Epik will reimburse.

*In any case of cancellation that requires a reimbursement, Epik reserves the right to deduct escrow fees in addition to any other applicable penalties and fees, regardless of who requested the cancellation.
