  1. Flippa actually launched Flippa Escrow (that is actually done through promisepay) earlier this year but they just didn’t announce it.
    It just appeared into Flippa listings.

    Originally Flippa FORCED every listing at Flippa to have option of Flippa escrow as payment method so their goal was to FORCE it on every listing and thereby entice everybody to use it because it was free for the buyer so they would buy themselves to the top so Flippa/PromisePay would become the biggest escrow company by a combination of leveraging Flippa’s reach and FORCING every listing to have Flippa escrow as option and by making it free for the buyer to get all the buyers paying through that.

    After I told Flippa/Promisepay repeatedly that FORCING people to use Flippa Escrow was a really bad business move they apparently agreed because I got an email from PromisePay that they agree and will stop FORCING Flippa escrow as an option for every Flippa transaction and now with this announcement they also announced that from now on people will be able to de-select Flippa escrow.

    I personally will NEVER use Flippa escrow as payment option because of the way they originally brought it out by FORCING people to use it as an option on their listings.

    The competition in the escrow space will heat up in 2015 that is for sure.
