"GunBroker Escrow" means GunTab

"GunBroker Escrow" means GunTab

One of GunBroker's "Payment Method" options is "Escrow". GunBroker should probably change it to "GunTab", because there is only one firearm-friendly online escrow service.

Payment Method options for a new GunBroker listing

Firearm-friendly escrow is rare

GunBroker's support article on "Using an Online Escrow Service" even says: "Many escrow services will not handle firearm transactions."  

Historically, GunBroker listed 2 escrow options in that article:

  1. Tradiator
  2. PaySafe Escrow

Both services are now defunct.  (However, visit tradiator.com and you will see it suggests using GunTab.)  Only GunTab has stood the test of time, having been operating since 2015.

Rely on up-to-date information

GunBroker has not added GunTab to their article about escrow.  That's probably because GunBroker is hoping to launch a competitor.  Regardless, there are 2 things you need to know:

  1. When you are using GunBroker, "Escrow" means GunTab.
  2. The GunBroker Buyer's Protection Program is insufficient and unpredictable. GunTab offers the only safe payments for guns and ammo online.
