In order to offer the most competitive prices we do not offer an Escrow service. For buyers wishing to use an Escrow service, we can offer this via Dan.com. Please note, this adds a 5% transaction fee (Dan.com’s fee for imported leads). Dan.com then act as the third-party, taking payment, and control of the domain name, and handling the transfer. Please contact us if you have any questions about this process.

For sales through Yolk.co.uk we require payment via UK bank transfer (no additional fees). If you would like to pay with a credit card, debit card or PayPal, we can offer this via Dan.com. Please note, this does add an additional 5% transaction fee (which we pay to Dan.com for the service). Dan.com is a GoDaddy brand.
