Complete your transaction in 5 easy steps:
Yahoo! Finance provides the Buyer and the Seller the assurance that the transaction will be handled to their specifications. The Buyer deposits the funds into a trust account prior to the Seller releasing the vehicle for inspection. Once the Buyer has accepted the vehicle the funds are disbursed according to the Yahoo! Finance instructions.
Step 1: The Buyer and the Seller agree to terms
Both parties agree to terms, which includes a description of the vehicle, sale price and number of days for the Buyer's inspection.
Step 2: The Buyer pays Yahoo! Finance
The Buyer completes the payment to Yahoo! Finance. When payment is received, it will be verified and secured into a non-interest bearing trust account. After payment is secured, the Seller will be notified to start the shipping process.
Step 3: The Seller ships vehicle to the Buyer
After the payment verification, the Seller is authorized to ship the vehicle. Yahoo! Finance verifies that the Buyer receives the shipment. The inspection period will begin when the vehicle is delivered.
Step 4: The Buyer accepts the vehicle
When the Buyer accepts the vehicle or the inspection period expires (at which point, the Buyer automatically accepts), the disbursement of payment will begin. Please note that Yahoo! Finance may perform additional verification before funds are released.
What happens if the Buyer refuses the vehicle?
If the Buyer refuses the vehicle during the inspection period, the Seller is responsible for paying the return shipping costs. In this case, Yahoo! Finance will refund the Buyer the full amount.
Step 5: Yahoo! Finance pays the Seller
Yahoo! Finance pays the Seller after all conditions of the transaction are met.
