Secure payments

We have partnered with trustap to enable you secure escrow payments.
Escrow is a method of payment where seller and buyer are checked and verified before money is held by a trusted third party until the purchase has been safely completed. Giving complete peace of mind and protection to both parties.
We recommend using escrow for every transaction done online, especially for acqusitions where you don't see the item in person, like smaller spare parts, gearboxes and similar, to avoid any inconveniences such as ordered item not arriving or not in state as agreed. With escrow, your don't have to worry.

Who can use escrow?

Anyone and for any transaction, regardless of its value. Whether you are buying a race car, a spare gearbox, a set of tyres or a helmet, trustap will help you avoid scammers with their strict seller verification process and in case the acquired gearbox on delivery still turns to be just a "box", your money is still safe with you, as you only release it to the seller once you receive the goods and confirm that they match the agreement. Complete peace of mind for every acquisition, who wouldn't want that?
