How The Customate Digital Escrow Wallet Works

i

Create The Escrow Schedule.

Either party (Buyer or Seller) creates an escrow and nominates the counterpart, the role of the counterpart (i.e. Buyer or Seller), the set price, terms of the transaction and uploads any supporting documents. 

The counterpart will be notified via email that an escrow has been created and they need to approve / reject the creation of the escrow

The Buyer Funds The Escrow.

The Buyer funds the Escrow by selecting their preferred funding source (Customate Digital Wallet, card, direct debit). Once the payment is made the Escrow is funded instantly and visible to both Buyer and Seller.

Either party can request additional funds are added to an existing escrow. The counterpart will be notified and needs to approve / reject the top up. Once the payment is verified, the Escrow is increased and can be seen instantly by both Buyer and Seller

Approve The Release Of Funds.

Funds will be held in the Escrow wallet, visible to both Buyer and Seller. Funds can remain in Escrow indefinitely and are safeguarded under the E-Money regulations. Either party (Buyer or Seller) can request that some / all escrow funds are released to the Seller. The counterpart will be notified and needs to approve / reject the release. Once the release is approved by the counterpart, Escrow funds are transferred to the Sellers Customate Digital Wallet instantly.
