    My test period is over. In recent months, unfortunately I've not seen a substantial increase in sales directly through the new ns5/ns6 BIN landers. However, there were the usual sales through Afternic DLS partners that would normally have happened as well.

    Sorry to say, but I am not happy with the constant failure to resolve essential problems such as complete implementation of https for landers. It simply takes too long and there is no proactive communication around this. Other marketplaces resolve such issues quickly. At Afternic, it remains a big question mark when things get resolved.

    The Afternic dashboard is lagging far behind other marketplaces.

    Afternic receives a 20% fee for every successful sale, including domain sales through BIN Landers. I am happy to grant Afternic this amount, but at the same time I do have certain expectations. At present, these expectations are far from being fulfilled.

    I've decided to return to my former landers with a 10% sales fee, expanded lander options, better domain management, and a very active community on NamePros. I will continue to offer my domains passively via Afternic DLS.

    I wish Afternic every success. The Afternic representatives on this forum probably haven't been able to quickly reform the legacy Afternic. Of course, I'm willing to re-try Afternic again for my domain landers, depending on if things have changed substantially, Afternic suddenly turns out to be very innovative and also starts interacting with this community actively instead of just being reactive.

    I recently suggested creating a dedicated thread for the Afternic Marketplace, with a neutral title. Some other marketplaces also have such threads and the interaction with the users is more vibrant. If you want to build a new Afternic together with this great community with a lot of knowledge, you really need a different setup that encourages participation. I think this community wants Afternic to succeed.

    Or make the country currency synbol in bold and a bit bigger

    Some possible reasons I can think of, for not showing the BIN price on ns5/ns6 landers, are:
    • The domain is still in a lock period (30d, 60d); this happens after you've changed whois or moved to another registrar.
    • The domain is a new gtld and falls in a higher registry pricing tier (only the lower pricing tiers will be displayed with BIN for some ngtlds)
    • The domain has a special status in your Afternic dashboard; or price was not set correctly.
    • Nameservers point to ns5/ns6 but the domain is not in your (or any) account at Afternic.

    When I added a newly registered domain to Afternic recently (through godaddy) it showed the sales lander without the Buy Now at first and then changed to the one with the Buy Now by itself after couple of days or so.

    Also in order to have the Buy Now lander I believe that in addition to using the ns5.Afternic.com and ns6.afternic.com you have to set both a Buy Now price and a Floor price for your domain and also set the minimum offer to at least $250 in your Afternic panel.

    (not 100% sure about all this so you might have to experiment with couple of domains.)

    IMO

    You are not alone.
    Ukraine is banned on Afternic firewall for many years.
