How the Safe Deal works?

Simply tick the box after concluding a deal

1
Concluding a deal and reserving money
After the terms have been agreed in the chat, the customer transfers the money to the escrow account and the specialist provides payment details
2
Waiting for commitments to be fulfilled
Funds are held until the specialist declares the work done and the client confirms completion of the work
3
Dispute resolution
In the event of a disagreement, it can be submitted to arbitration by the Experts Council for a refund or a change in the amount of the fee
4
Checking the result and payment
The customer confirms the completion of the work, and the funds, which the customer previously transferred to the holding account, are paid to the specialist

new
Arbitrage

How Honest Barter works?

Simply tick the box when making a non-monetary deal

1
Concluding deals and security deposits
When bartering, users are both customers and contractors, so a deposit is held on the escrow account for each party
2
Bilateral fulfillment of obligations
Cash is held until each party confirms that it has completed the part of the deal for which its counterparty is responsible
3
Dispute resolution
In case of disagreement, you can open a dispute, return your deposit and get the counterparty's deposit if he/she has not complied with his/her part of the barter deal
4
Checking the work and refunding deposits
Each party verifies that the other's obligations have been fulfilled and the deposits will be returned to them from the escrow account

Who can work on sciamp.com?
The sciamp.com platform is based on the idea of open and accessible science. The platform is intended for legal and individuals who are directly or indirectly related to science, research and development.
What is the Expert Council?
The sciamp.com service was created by scientists and we understand that projects related to science, research and development are highly specialised and risky. That is why we pay attention to reducing the risks to both Clients and Contractors. One of the benefits of sciamp.com is the Expert Council, which, as part of the arbitration, considers and decides disputes between users, taking into account the specific nature and subject matter of the particular transaction. At sciamp.com, disputes are not treated formally: each dispute is handled by a person close to the subject matter
Who is the Scientific Adviser?
In case you cannot verify the quality of the results of your order or if you would like to get a review of the results of your deal by an expert, you can choose the service Scientific Advisor. This service includes an assessment of the results by an independent Transaction Subject Matter Expert, which can help the Client to decide whether to approve or reject the Contractor's results. A 'blind' assessment scheme is used, whereby: the Academic Expert is an external expert who is not on the Expert Council of sciamp.com, the Academic Expert does not know who the Client and the Specialist are, the Client and the Specialist do not know who the Academic Expert is
How to use security options?
The Safe Deal, Honest Barter or Scientific Advisor options are selected when clarifying the terms of the deal with a particular counterparty after discussing the details in the chat.
What is escrow?
Escrow is an agreement whereby a third-party licensed financial institution holds the Customer's payment in favour of the Contractor until the Broker is notified of the completion of the Contractor's obligations. The funds in the escrow account are managed by the Broker, who, in the context of the Safe-Trade and Honest Barter options, prevents the Contractor from failing to perform the work after receiving the Client's payment and the Contractor from not paying for the work after receiving the result by the Client, as well as conducting arbitrage in case of disagreement between the counterparties. The broker shall be the platform sciamp.com itself.
What is arbitrage?
Arbitration is the process of resolving disputes between counterparties in a Safe Deal or Honest Barter, which can have a result such as: full refund to the Client, full payment to the Specialist, partial refund and partial payment for services, depending on the completeness of the Specialist's obligations. The decision is taken by the Expert Council on the basis of all documents on the current deal and the appeals of both parties.
How sciamp.com is regulated?
All documents are publicly available at the bottom of the page. Every interaction of users on sciamp.com is regulated by the Terms of Service and a separate agreement for a Secure Transaction based on the status of the Service Provider (legal entity or individual) or an Honest Barter based on the status of the Service Provider (legal entity or individual.
What is the fee for Safe Deal and Honest Barter?
The sciamp.com fee is always the same and is 3.0% per transaction. The payment system fee ranges from 3.25% depending on the jurisdiction of the bank account and payment method.
Who pays the fee?
In the case of a Safe Deal, the fee is paid by the Client. In the case of Honest Barter, since this deal is an exchange of services where each party is the Client and the Specialist at the same time, the fee is shared between both parties.
