Escrow Service Defined
An escrow purchase is a purchase where the buyer places money
in the custody of a trusted third party. The money is then paid to the
seller, when a specified set of conditions, agreed to between the parties,
are met. Royal Bank America, an FDIC federally insured
bank, is the party that provides this service to PSfineart clients. Escrow
purchase terms and conditions are explained below.

Unpacking and Re-packaging
Buyer will receive written instructions as to how to open the packaging

fee will be forwarded to the buyer if the art is damaged, otherwise

accompanied by a PSfineart return authorization number, 3) is packaged
according to instructions, and with the same materials used for delivery,
and 4) has not been mishandled and therefore damaged by the buyer.

report identifies and confirms the item(s) to be purchased, and gives a
description of the artwork's condition.

Acting as the escrow manager and in
accordance with its Master Account Agreement, Royal Bank America will
disburse funds to the appropriate party only after art is either: 1) returned
in accordance with the return terms in the above return and refund paragraph,
2) returned by courier because of damages in shipping, or 3) received
by the buyer and the buyer confirms satisfaction.
Buyer's Satisfaction Confirmed:
Buyer's satisfaction is deemed confirmed when 14 days following delivery
has passed, and no art has been returned by the buyer during that period.
Sale and Accord
Title (ownership) is transferred when both the: 1)
buyer accepts the art and is satisfied with its purchase, and
2) bank (escrow agent) releases the transaction fee paid by the
buyer to PSfineart.
Your purchase deems acceptance of the terms and conditions
of this agreement, and by transfer of title the parties have satisfied
