Pay by EscrowNo advance performance risk, no debt collection and no credit checks

With our digital escrow service PAYLAX you make sure that you only start your service when your customer has already paid. And the good thing is - he will be happy to do it! Because the escrow service creates trust on both sides.


Protection for service providers

The amount deposited in the escrow account cannot be withdrawn by the client without your consent.

What happens if the buyer does not release the money?

Protection for Customers

Only when your client has received the agreed service, the money will be forwarded to you.

What happens if the seller does not deliver or if the product/service has defects?

This isHow it works

Transactions and payments are processed via a move-for-move procedure that is transparent to both service provider and client. This avoids a financial advance risk for both sides, protects against payment defaults and underlines the seriousness of the parties involved.

When your client has joined the escrow payment, he deposits the agreed amount in an insolvency-protected escrow account. The following payment options are available to your customers:
  • Bank transfer - up to max. 2 million €
  • Credit card (VISA / Mastercard) - up to max. 2,500 €
  • SOFORT by Klarna - up to max. 2,500 €

3. Fulfillment of service

You will be automatically notified by email upon receipt of funds in the escrow account. The funds cannot be pulled back by the client without your consent, but will be held securely in the escrow account until released or cancelled.

4. Release of Funds

Upon acceptance of the service, your client releases the deposited amount and the funds are irrevocably transferred to you. In case of discrepancies, the disbursement amount can be adjusted afterwards or the escrow payment can be cancelled.

Fast, easy and above all safe!

Create a payment link in a few seconds, through which you can securely request or send money. Include the link with your offer or send the payment request separately via email or SMS. Your customer will be taken to a secure payment page and can make the deposit directly into the insovensured escrow account.

Intuitive & clear payment management

Manage your payments via your PAYLAX business account and always keep an overview. With the support of the integrated customer chat or the price adjustment function, they remain flexible and react quickly and competently to all situations.

No unpaid invoices, no payment defaults

Delinquencies and bad debts are an issue to be taken seriously, especially in the crafts sector. Our escrow protection ensures the creditworthiness of your customers. Before you as a craftsman begin with your service, your client pays the sum agreed upon in the offer into our escrow account. If your work is done and your client has no defects to show, the money is irrevocably paid to you.

With PAYLAX, we support crafts companies so that you can concentrate on your core business without worry and give your clients a secure feeling.
