Do I give my services/site before starting the payment transaction or after so I don't get scam?

Hello, everybody so I’m kind of new to SWAPD and I just want to know how do you do business and transactions with buyers as a seller on SWAPD?

Hi Davontae,

@moderators The person I want to buy from has no reviews, how can I be sure I won’t get scammed when buying?

Step 1 – You first browse around our website and try to find a willing buyer/seller.
Step 2 – Once you find a willing person, you start a checkout ticket. Both parties join a checkout ticket and confirm the details of the transaction such as:

  • Property in question
  • Price
  • Method of payment

Step 3 – SWAPD team confirms everything including fees (we charge a small fee + money transfer fees) and set terms that all parties must agree to. To find out how much sellers get charged during transactions, please use our fee calculator.
Step 4 – Upon reaching a deal, both parties agree to directly forfeit the payment and the property to SWAPD.
Step 5 – We confirm the payment and secure the property.
Step 6 – Upon inspection and confirmation from all parties that everything is OK, and our mandatory grace period, we release the property and payment (minus our fee) to the rightful owners.

This is what an escrow (middleman) service looks like. Our team is here to make sure you don’t get cheated, and that the properties sold within our network are clean and free of any wrongdoings.

Note: The same process applies to our SWAPD Auctions.
