Speak to us about getting the most out of your E-Escrow experience.
E-Escrow earns revenue by charging a transaction fee. The fee structure below reflects our standard fees. Please contact us to negotiate special tariffs on large or high volume transactions. Speak to us about capping your E-Escrow fees, meaning you will never pay more than an agreed amount.
Who pays the E-Escrow fee?
The parties to the transaction decide who pays the E-Escrow fee.
If the buyer pays:
The fee is added to the transaction total: Total of goods purchased + E-Escrow fee = grand total.
If the seller pays:
The E-Escrow fee is subtracted from the total, example: Total of goods purchased less E-Escrow fee equals the amount due to seller.
If the buyer and seller pay:
If buyer and seller decides to split the E-Escrow fee then 50% of the fee will be added to the purchase price and 50% of the fee will be subtracted from the seller's payout.
The E-Escrow fee excludes VAT.
To keep our fees low we apply it to a transaction based on a sliding scale as set out below. The minimum fee of R 200 excluding VAT is applicable to transactions with calculated fees of less than R 200.
