What is the otx Secure Escrow Service?

The "otx Secure Escrow Service" can be used for any and all transactions closed through otx, online or offline. The escrow account is legally held by an Attorney's Office in Germany, appointed by otx AG, as an independent third party. All amounts deposited in the Escrow Account are safely and securely held by the Attorney's office. The Escrow account can be set up for deals starting at €5000 or equivalent, for a fee of only 0.5% of the transaction value. The Escrow-Account fee shall be paid by Buyer and Seller in equal parts (0.25% each).
