    I have a client that is wanting to make a payment to me through PayPal since we're dealing with a decent sum. My question is, when I accept payments through Escrow, is my "personal" information revealed to the buyer/sender such as my name, phone number and address? On PayPal, the buyer only sees my business name, not my personal name but I'm not sure with Escrow as I haven't used them before. Also, with Escrow, I'm only able to withdraw my funds through a bank wire correct?

    Thanks for the help!

    Sorry for the confusion, I meant to say:

    The client is wanting to make a payment to me through "Escrow", not PayPal.

    I'm essentially wanting to know ahead of time what personal information of mine (If any) will be displayed to the sender/buyer when transacting through Escrow.

    Check with the service provider, but they should normally show at least your invoice information.

    If you are using Elance, yes, both sides can see info.

    I guess I'll have to contact them directly as I did not see this covered on their site FAQ.

    This not through eLance, this is a straight forward "client" to "seller" transaction. We normally use PayPal but since this is a large project with a larger then normal budget with multiple milestones, we're wanting to use Escrow to protect the both of us.

    It's probably a good idea. I love working with escrow.
