New Boats.com Payment Platform Creates Peace of Mind

30-Nov-2016

Boats.com has announced the launch of an industry-first payment platform to ensure that both boat buyer and seller's finances are secure during a transaction. Boats.com is the largest global search engine in the marine market. It boasts more than 300,000 boats for sale from 143 countries.

"We are proud to be the first to bring this online transaction technology to the marine industry, as we believe it has the potential to change the e-commerce landscape and overall purchasing process within the recreational marine industry," says Katie Jackson, Boats.com brand manager. "By connecting private sellers with serious, verified buyers and eliminating the need for them to share personal financial information, we are able to provide confidence, security and peace of mind when they buy or sell a boat using Boats.com Secure Payments."

With the new payment platform, private sellers can check that a buyer is verified and has secured funds before transferring their boat. The seller then receives payment once the boat is delivered to the buyer without problems. To use the secure payment platform, the seller is charged 1 percent of the final sale price of the boat.
