    LOL, just be sure you won't be scammed, you somehow just have the aura of a scammed person.

    But either push the domain for their account if they provide you with, on the same registrar - or get EPP code from your registrar and let them do the transfer to another registrar.

    You will have domain transfer option in your c panel. Ask buyer's register ID and e-mail which is needed for domain transferring. To be more simple :- search "how to transfer domain to another account" in Google or you tube and follow the steps :)


    Thanks,

    Contact the registrar about transferring ownership. Not all have the same procedures, and they may require you to request a transfer in writing.

    don't ever transfer your domain before you get the full payment,
    yesterday i been scammed and the buyer take over my godaddy account with 5 domains and run away,

    Glad to hear it worked out. For sub $1K size transactions just doing a simple Domain Sales Agreement and sending a paypal invoice, collect payment then PUSH ownership is the best route. If you're doing larger transaction Escrow.com is your best bet. Anything over $5K requires a wire to them, transactions under $5K the buyer can pay for it via CC or Paypal to them. They receive payment THEN instruct you to push ownership to the buyer. After buyer confirms (no way he/she can say they didn't receive it as long as you follow the instructions) Escrow.com closes out the transaction and 2 days later releases the funds to you.

    If you want to do a lease to own on a Domain the min. transaction size is $75K. I've done just just under dozen of these through them, it's the standard escrow charge .0089% plus $500 per year the Domain will be leased. They act as the holding agent for the Domain, in this case and the only case where escrow.com actually "takes" possession of a Domain Name. After the final lease payment is made the Domain is pushed to the buyer.

    Escrow.com is 100% safe, I've ran hundreds of transaction through them going back almost 10 years without a single issue.
