    Question Escrow Service

    Hi, I'm thinking of starting up an escrow site. If anyone has used guru.com, their escrow service is exactly what I'm looking at making (just the escrow part). I really don't have much experience in that kind of thing though.

    Has anyone worked on a site like this? If so I would really like to know exactly what is involved in designing a site like this.

    A few questions I have...

    - Are there companies that will manage the process payments for me? Or would I need to manage all the funds internally?
    - Can Mediation/Arbitration be outsourced?
    - What are the pros/cons in this business.
    - Will I have problems with people's trust just because it's new?

    Thanks for any help.

    ps: if your interested in working with me on this we can talk.

    Once you figure out what you are going to move forward with, I have a great domain name for this purpose: Escrow,fm. If you would like to discuss this more please PM me.

    Regards,
