Why I’m Happy to Pay High Commissions

In the domain name industry, the majority of marketplaces and brokers require 10% to 20% commission on every domain sale facilitated through that service. Some of the more specialized marketplaces, though, charge 25% to 30% commission.

While you may balk at those commission charges, others don’t. Here, for example, is an investor who is happy to pay up to 30% commission on a good marketplace. The in-depth explanation might change your mindset about commission fees.
