Those who don’t know about Flippa, Let me tell you that Flippa is a marketplace for selling or buying domains, apps and websites.
So, I recently listed one of my website on Flippa and successfully sold for $350 USD, I successfully hand over all the access to the buyer, that includes:
- Complete Site Data
- Facebook Page
- Google Analytics [ADMIN ACCESS]
So, The buyer proceeded the payment with escrow, I received an email from Escrow, Stated that I received amount from buyer etc.
Here is the Mail:
So, The funds were secured after 48+, I received an email from Escrow stated that my country Pakistan is banned from receiving payments from escrow.
So, here comes the real headache, there wasn’t another option for me than escrow, so, the payment got cancelled and refunded to the buyer.
So, Here is the countries that are banned by Escrow, CLICK TO VIEW LISTS
The buyer thought, I cancelled the transactions for not paying escrow an extra charges, so, I made him understand all this, and fortunately he understood everything.
Payment Methods of Flippa:
PayPal, is banned in Pakistan, So, I can’t use that eight nor escrow. So, I contacted Flippa team they suggested to wait till the buyer gets his refund and you can than contact buyer, if he could pay you with Payoneer.
The buyer was honest and good person, he sent me the amount on western union, so, I collected my amount and leave a positive review for buyer.
How Can Flippa Team Improve Payment Methods?
If Flippa integrates Payoneer system into their website that could be great or if Escrow could lift ban from Pakistan that would be great, or may be if Flippa wants they can integrate Easypaisa or Mobicash as their payment method.
