The first step in becoming the new owner of a business on Exchange is to message a seller from their listing. Once you have a reply from the seller, you can take the next steps to making an offer by using either the "Reply" button or "Make an offer" button in the seller's reply.
The ability to make an offer will only be available once the seller has responded to your first message. When you click the "Reply" button or "Make an offer" button, you will be taken to the Exchange website where you can formally send the seller your offer.
In the below images from the Exchange website, you can see that you must click "Add offer" and then type in your offer value in USD, followed by clicking the "Send" button. You are able to click "Remove offer" if you do not want to proceed.
If you have already sent in an offer, but wish to cancel it, you can click "Cancel offer" as seen in the image below.
As soon as your offer is accepted, a transaction will begin. You'll receive an email from our payment partner Escrow.com with the details of the transaction and instructions on how to pay the seller. Here's why you should only use Escrow.
