I've bought and sold around $15k USD, always using Sy as escrow.  Totally easy and professional every time

Very good points about escrow. I think the only real thing would be to get someone that you absolutely trust to provide the escrow service (I think the OP mentioned a few but still want to check the creds of anyone offering to provide that).

This is for me, the escrower may differ slightly on how they proceed.

You both agree via PMs on on forums of agreed amount, the buyer sends me coins, the seller sends him money (or whatever else), once received, I release the coins. Escrowers charge a small %, and its up to buyer and seller of who pays it.

Also for me and other escrowers, if there is an argument it is up to the discretion of the escrower to determine how best to proceed.

That doesnt make it very safe for the seller. I mean I am trying to sell on here what if when I ship I can take pics and even make a video of the packing and product to show, the buyer says he received the product or didnt receive it or is bad by lying how am I secured?

Ive never escrowed for physical items before, its always been fiat --> LTC. Which in that case has the extra layer of bank statements/transactions that can be verified. In your case, maybe a signature on delivery?

That kind of makes sense I can provide all sorts of prof of packing and tacking number and we can track the same via ups or dhl. I will let you know if I am able to sell some stuff I will advise to the buyer to use escrow through you that way we will both be secure.
