What is Electronic Negotiation (eNegotiation)?
As we outlined in our Technology-enhanced Dispute Resolution (TeDR) methodology document and we highlight on our YouTube ™ Channel, TeDR TV, ZipSettle is a revolutionary eNegotiation platform in the cloud accessible by any browser from your smartphone, pad or computer that virtually negotiates for the parties using artificial intelligence based algorithms. Thus allowing the parties a very easy to use virtual experience for resolving almost any type of dispute.
Research and user experience results have proven that having the system negotiate vs face-to-face or attorney to attorney, the parties will actually see a more favorable outcome. Research supports BOTH PARTIES will get up to 20% more each than they would have settled for face-to-face or in a traditional legal process.
ZipSettle offers a simple to use approach, does not require attorneys or the courts. Both parties can use ZipSettle from their phones safely, zero confrontation, confidentially and at a very affordable price. We urge all to try ZipSettle for attempting to resolve your conflict before contracting an attorney or filing a lawsuit.
- Please understand with Electronic Negotiation, you are never alone, while our AI driven engine negotiates for you, from the point you open a case, our you are assigned a Case Advisor and they are a click away to offer you advice in the process of settling.
- If you are not able to resolve your conflict using our AI Driven Engine, you will be given one of two options:
1. Proceed to Mediation (Old School) mediation without attorneys or without the mediator being a retired judge or attorney, true Neutrals (Mediation is not a legal process), this 1st option is of course less expensive since you not paying your attorneys to participate and this can all be done in the Cloud, via Video Conferencing.
2. You can elect to bring your attorneys and use a Mediator from the Legal Industry. This can also either be done in the Cloud, or Face-to-Face, or a combination of both.
- If you any point, you want the advice of an attorney, we can refer you to an attorney referral firm to get legal advice.
WHAT DO YOU RISK OR LOSE BY TRYING THIS REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH!
OUR GOAL: Enable BOTH parties to arrive at a solution/settlement that is GREATER THAN what each would likely have gotten using the traditional legal process!
How ZipSettle Works
So, the idea that we’ve built a better system of conflict resolution sounds wonderful, but people need to know how this actually works. Here is the typical flow of what you will experience using our platforms.
Click on "FREE CASE EVALUATION" to fill in the evaluation form. Your information will be immediately forwarded to one of our Conflict Resolution Specialist. The specialist will contact you with our recommendation.
When you agree to use ZipSettle we then collect contact information for the other party and contact them to let them know you are working with ZipSettle to reolve the conflict.
We work with the other party to fully explain how ZipSettle works, the benefits of using ZipSettle, and why they should trust our process.
More information is collected from each party and then our settlement sytem begins to help both parties come to an equitable and agreeable solution.
A final resolution is achieved and an agreement document is created. Our Customer Relationship Specialist stays engaged until the agreement is finalized and all action items are executed by each party.
ZipSettle charges a fee of $98 for cases up to $30K of total cumulative settlement value. For cases where the total settlement is above $30K, our fees are $98, plus 4% of the settlement value.
$249.00 for Professional Dispute Resolution where Case Manager Facilitators are assigned (up to 3 hours).
If it turns out that your particular issues cannot be resolved using ZipSettle, we have other low cost tools that can be used.

Traditional Mediation and Court Order Mediation
ZipSettle offers true Traditional Mediation based on our TeDR Methodology in a true online fashion, see below:
Traditional Mediation first introduced under Alternative Dispute Resolution four to five decade ago, and how mediation is basically offered in most countries of the world (beside the United Sates) does not including the Disputing Parties Attorneys or even Attorney or former Judge Mediators. In the last two decades, above 90% of the mediations in the US are court referred and the majority include the parties attorneys, and most mediators/neutrals are practicing or retired attorneys or retire Judges.
We believe the market is ripe for a new approach to Mediation in the US but based in a large part on the Traditional Approach from the ADR industries. Today, ZipSettle can offer consumers with conflicts a fully online Mediation alternative and the Disputing Parties are not allowed to bring attorneys and the assigned Mediator/Neutral will NOT be an attorney or retired Judge. Our neutrals are professionals trained in Conflict Resolution and Psychology of Conflict, and are not officers of the court. Mediation is NOT a legal process. For a low fixed fee, you can click here, complete the FREE CASE EVALUATION FORM, and request traditional mediation, again our fees are based on $125 an hour, and entirely online via Zoom Video Conferencing.
Lastly, if you already filed a law suit, and you are desiring a fully online approach to mediation regardless of which State of Country you live in, please visit our sister product, www.Settle-Now.com (Link and logo to Settle-Now) and fill out the Free Case Evaluation, and indicate you want mediations done the way the legal system currently does it, including your attorneys, Settle-Now offers that service including your attorneys and using Certified Mediators and the fees start at $150 an hour.
We take the lead on contacting the other party, explaining the benefits of using our platforms, and convincing them to participate. We have lots of experience helping people see the benefits of avoiding traditional conflict systems, so we can almost always get all parties to engage.
Someone balking after an agreement has been made is a part of the conflict process, no matter what system you choose. If this happens we engage with the hesitant party to work toward a finalized resolution. If we cannot get them to follow through on the agreement, then just like any other case, the traditional system of courts can then be invoked so that the agreement can be enforced by law.
ZipSettle is designed to be used without the help of a third party. GIVE IT A TRY. If your conflict stalls or doesn't progress as expected we have Certified Resolution Experts that can step in to keep the process moving.
