Think this is probably the most suitable forum for this to go in... Anyway, a friend of mine has reached out asking for advice on a domain they're trying to purchase but having issues with the transaction. I wasn't sure what to tell them so wondering if you lot had any suggestions. They're trying to buy a .com. Price has been agreed and virtual hands have been shaken. The problem is that the seller is insisting on using an escrow company called Payoneer that, according to my friend, just doesn't work. They've tried submitting payment via card several times and each time they just get an error message. They've contacted the escrow company (or tried to) but the contact form also returns an error message. Not a great advert for the company really. There is an option to send funds via international bank wire, but they're understandably worried that it's going to go tits up and is hesitant to proceed. My advice was to get them to use a different escrow service, but the seller is flat out refusing to use anyone other than payoneer. Which is raising his suspicion levels. So... are payoneer legit? Had anyone had any dealings with them in the past? Suggestions on next steps?
