I am a regular user of Escrow.domains / EscrowDomains.com, and lots of brokers have migrated over there due to KYC challenges and other issues at Escrow.com. It's run by domain lawyer Stevan Lieberman, who is a great guy.

Escrow.com KYC is very stringent ... the other platforms less so. Sedo barely has any, which is why I use it for folks who object to Escrow.com level of KYC.
 
it would be interesting to know what the kyc rules actually are and whether escrow.com goes further than necessary or if the others aren’t doing their jobs.
 
Escrow.com is the only licensed domain escrow service, so they are bound by stricter KYC rules than Sedo and Escrow.domains ... but that strictness can also be a pain in the ass to some Buyers/Sellers.

On one hand, if I'm selling using an escrow service, then I'd want that service to actually be licensed, so Escrow.com still sounds like the choice #1 for me. And I'd have to question whether or not I'd really want to do business with someone who doesn't want to follow the KYC rules.

But on the other hand, when I'm selling directly I don't verify the buyer's identity either. I just take their word for it. So from that perspective, there are zero KYC rules being followed when selling directly. So I guess it's a little hypocritical of me to get bent out of shape about someone avoiding the KYC rules of escrow.com.
