This isHow it works

1. Create escrow payment and send payment link

The seller creates an escrow payment via the PAYLAX dashboard and sends the payment link to the buyer.

2. Buyer deposits the money on the escrow account

The buyer opens the payment link and deposits the purchase amount in an insolvency court escrow account. Depending on the transaction volume, the buyer can choose from the following payment methods.

3. Seller hands over the goods or service

PAYLAX informs the salesman about the safe receipt of money and he can arrange now carefree the delivery of the commodity or the contribution of the service.

4. Seller receives the money in real time after approval

After the buyer has received and verified the goods or service, the money is irrevocably transferred to the seller.

Buyer Protection

The seller does not receive the money until the buyer has received and verified the goods or service. The release must be made via the PAYLAX account of the buyer.

What happens if the seller does not deliver or if the product/service has defects?

Seller Protection

The buyer cannot withdraw the money without the express consent of the seller. It is not necessary to pass on bank details to the buyer

What happens if the buyer does not release the money?
