“A domain escrow service that doesn't hold the domain is like a bank without a vault.”Start Escrow Transaction
Epik Escrow is a full service trusted intermediary for domains transactions between buyers, sellers and brokers
We are here 24/7 to help you complete the process quickly and securely.
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.
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.
The standard escrow fee is 1.5% of the transaction amount with wire transfer payment, 2.5% of the transaction amount with major crypto payment, and 5% of the transaction amount with credit card payment.
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.
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.
We support most major national currencies and leading cryptocurrencies including bitcoin for both sides of a transaction.

No. All funding methods are free of charge. Epik actually "eats" the fees associated with payment methods in order to provide a simple and smooth experience for the Buyer.
In Epik Escrow, the Buyer pays the transfer fees for all external domains. This is only logical, as domain transfers will generally add one year to the domain's expiration date, which will benefit the Buyer. If you are the Seller and want to cover such fees for your Buyer, simply transfer all domains into your Epik account before initiating the escrow process.
*This service is not available to residents of Idaho, Texas and Washington.
We accept all major credit cards, wire transfer, bank deposit, AliPay, Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency, Transferwise, and Western Union. For special arrangements, or split funding sources, simply contact us.
Yes. As long as you fund your account with the necessary amount, you may use as many methods as you wish.
We will never publicize domain sales amounts. At Epik, your transaction is private.
Epik’s escrow service is intended for larger transactions. For transactions that are smaller than $1000, involving domains not registered at Epik, there is a $75 minimum fee. A cost efficient alternative for small transactions is to use the Epik marketplace.
