SAFEFUNDS Transaction Fee Schedule for deals settling after May 31, 2022.
The buyer's regular transaction fee is $0 on a completed transaction. Our transaction
fee is deducted from the seller's proceeds. **
Buyers deposit funds directly into their own
Safefunds accounts. Buyers do not send funds directly
to sellers. Deposits may be made by bank wire, electronic
funds transfer, or paper check (drawn on a U.S. bank).
** The only fee exception is a buyer's deposit securing
a transaction that depends on the buyer's performance (not the seller's)
and the transaction is meant to be cancelled
if the buyer performs. In this exception case, the Safefunds fee is
paid from the party that receives the funds at the end of the transaction.
