Mlinzi is an online escrow system that seeks to safeguard people from fraud. An escrow is a financial arrangement with a third party holding and regulating payment of the funds involved in a given transaction between two parties; a process that enhances trust in buying and selling by making the process more secure and open. When trading, Mlinzi keeps payments in a secure “standby” account which is only released once all the terms of an agreement are met. The company thus offers digital escrow services with a simple and easy-to-use platform.
