Thank you [notify]rlm[/notify] and [notify]MapleDots[/notify]. Will let them know. It used to be super fast. My best was experience was when everything was completed in one day. The buyer had credit at Escrow from another sale and that closed the deal in just hours.
Well that Dan payout schedule isn't really any faster than Escrow, I've had huge sales hit my bank account within 24 hours of starting the transaction - and small ones that take 4 or 5 days. I'm pretty sure its just down to banking rules and the id verification stuff they all have to do. If your buyer is already set up and verified with either system, it will be faster for sure. If the buyer has to go through the verification stuff that will slow things down, it just depends on how quick the buyer submits the info and if its a weekend or not. In either case, I don't think a particular slow or fast transaction is either of Dan's or Escrow's doing, its just the particulars of that buyer...
We use Escrow.com on a weekly basis. In general, transactions run pretty quickly, especially in Concierge Mode (which is very fast for Sellers to get paid). Wire payments sent to Escrow.com are typically confirmed within 24 hours, and payouts to Sellers typically happen within 24 hours of Closing Statements being sent. If Buyer is paying via Credit Card or PayPal, that slows things down since Escrow.com has to verify those payments are legit. Same for payments in AUD, that is slower than USD.
In general, Escrow.com as a company works 9-5 Monday to Friday PST, so if you are doing stuff during those time periods you will get faster results.
