Buyer Protection

Paynow operates an escrow-type service called Buysafe to protect and reassure buyers. Buysafe protects the buyer by ensuring that payment is only sent to the Merchant once the buyer is satisfied that the goods have been delivered or service rendered. See the Full FAQ for more detail on Buysafe.


The buyer gets the opportunity to rate and review the seller’s service for all transactions over $20. Check previous ratings and whether the seller has Buysafe enabled or whether they are a Paynow Verified Merchant.
