Finding Your Perfect Fit: Escrow Payment vs. Mass Payment

Escrow vs Mass Payment

There are certainly questions that tangle between escrow payment and mass payment. What are they? What are their differences? How can you benefit your business through these features? Lets start by defining each idea...

Escrow payment is a service where Razer Merchant Services acts as a trusted 3rd party that collects, holds, and disburses fund on behalf of Marketplace according to buyer and seller instructions. If the definition puzzles you, escrow payment is just a payment service that helps a marketplace (i.e. Ebay, Amazon,etc) to maintain its payment activity.

On the other hand, mass payment is a cash management service for merchants that cater a large number of buyers or sellers by disbursements or refunds.

My simple definition for mass payment is “a service for merchants that process large amount of monies for settlement or refunds”.
