Payment Protection is a fundamental part of Eximbox's Buyer Protection program. The way it works is simple.

The ability to hold your payment from the seller in a secure escrow account and until your order is successfully delivered is very important for a number of reasons, including:

  • Your payment information is given only to Eximbox and never to your seller
  • Your money is held safely by Eximbox until your order delivery is confirmed
  • You have leverage when opening a dispute or requesting a refund should you be unhappy with your received product.
