  1. They are probably getting too many chargbacks, but when you pay via Escrow.com you are able to fund purchase with a credit card. Same for Paypal unless seller only accepts direct Paypal transfer. So how is it that Escrow.com protects themselves from chargebacks? Do they have some kind of agreement with the credit card companies?,

  2. You are able to fund purchase through credit card and paypal on escrow.com ….. however the limit is $5000, they charge premium fee for it, and I believe there is restriction on countries from where you can use them. I think the fee is worth it.
    I am not so sure what escrowhill.com takes.
