    Okay, I'm doing my first Flippa sale.
    I have a BIN price of 23,500, and someone wants to buy it.
    He is willing to bank wire the money to me.
    But I'm still skeptical.
    Am I 100% safe doing bank wire?

    Anyone can reverse bank wires. I would definitely not recommend bank wires unless you're doing it through escrow. Escrow fees are a pain in the butt though!

    Check their history. if they've been buying for a while, you should be fine!

    No, they haven't. How long can until a bank wire can't be reversed? :/

    I would recommend escrow if you can afford their fees. Why are you looking for bank wire only?
