Escrow.com today announced the acquisition of Agreed.com, a Thought Convergence, Inc. property. Escrow.com provides safe and secure Internet transactions. This acquisition brings together the only two licensed escrow companies in the United States that have products, services, and systems specifically designed for the domain community and online personal property transactions. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“By integrating the technologies of our companies, we will be able to offer a more comprehensive set of options to the domain community,” stated Escrow.com President and Managing Director, Brandon Abbey. He continued, “As the worldwide leader in providing escrow services for “the real estate of the Internet”, it is important that we react to the needs and expectations of our customers as the global marketplace changes. Agreed.com has developed unique and proprietary technology that our clients will now be able to enjoy, while bringing together the only government-licensed and audited, insured, and bonded personal property Internet escrow companies in the world.”
Ammar Kubba, CEO of Agreed.com and its parent company, Thought Convergence, Inc., said, “We’ve spent the past several years building a powerful and intuitive online escrow platform for the domain community. Escrow.com will now be able to scale more rapidly and successfully deliver additional services to the global market. I look forward to working with Brandon and his team throughout the transition and for years to come.” Ammar added, “The rapidly evolving domain industry needs a trusted third party that is neutral, transparent, and independent, which is why joining Escrow.com was the obvious choice for us. They’ve been in this business for 15 years, and they’ve clearly withstood the test of time and trust. Escrow.com has always been a pillar of the domain industry, and they’re the only ones that I would trust with our future business and that of our customers.”
Effective shortly, the Agreed.com URL will be redirected to Escrow.com while the technologies are integrated. Agreed.com will no longer accept new escrow transactions, and all outstanding transactions will be completed by the company. Mr. Kubba will provide consulting services during the transition and on future products.
Brandon Abbey stated, “When Ammar first approached me with this opportunity, I felt that it would be a good thing for the domain industry, and, since then, we’ve both put a lot of time and effort into making it happen.” He added, “This will be a smooth and successful transition for all concerned.”
i was looking forward for Escrow.com Acquisition of Agreed.com to happen … finally it did happen .. nice work ..
What a fuckin joke escrow.com is
If their service was a PROPER escrow (taking control of both the domain AND funds) & they had earlier offered other bells & whistles (multi currency), they wouldn’t have had competitiors, period
Surry Francois, IF your ecop was a PROPER licensed, insured escrow service, they too wouldd’ve bought you out for $millions.
As such, your ecop is worthless…catering to unknowing naive domainers selling $200 domains.
No one selling high value domains eg $100,000 would trust some guy in his bedroom who might be betting on a “sure thing” with the float (in eg Apple shares)
