As a listed broker, despite being fully independant, we share the RIPE NCC key values: Inclusiveness, Engagement, Transparency and Coordination.
From our first agreement with RIPE NCC back in 2016 we developped our activity in other RIR, becoming a registered broker in ARIN (Americas), APNIC (Asia Pacific) and LACNIC (latin America). Only AFRINIC do not use brokers. We take very seriously the fact to secure transactions for both our buyers AND sellers in the best way possible and we use several tools along with a good sense of experience and expertise to ensure that seller is empowered to transfer the subnet and is reliable.
We also ensure that financial transaction is secured and that payment is done automatically when RIPE NCC or ARIN/APNIC/LACNIC database is updated with the new Organisation name. For that we use either our own Bank with selected returning customers or third party Escow. Based on the country of origin of the seller and buyer we use 9 times out of 10 Escrow.com.
With low minimum fees and pricing as low as 0.89%, Escrow.com is cheaper than credit cards and many other payment methods. Additionally other payment providers may allow a transaction to be reversed or "charged back" for up to 6 months after settlement, while Escrow.com transactions are safe and final.
Creating an account with escrow.com is free but can take a few days. Prepare your self by opening an account as soon as your IPv4 sourcing project takes shape. There again we are here to help !
