    I've heard of these websites before. Never thought of listing with them. Am I missing out on sales?

    Aren't these sites just for brandables? not EMD's.

    Mostly made up names in .com's.

    Are people making serious money on these websites versus say your Godaddy or Sedo or Namejet?

    I'll even include Flippa to the list.

    even so. At this point though are they overly saturated to have these sites be of any real benefit?

    You're missing out by not listing on Squadhelp.

    Bought; SH wholesale market;
    equityful (.)com
    TrulyWash (.)com
    Restively (.)com

    CostSlayer
    LeanSalad
    (This cost $15)
    FrontSuites
    ScanSpark


    Have 11 Squadhelp names;
    https://www.squadhelp.com/domain-portfolio/Positive/969449

    Most of my portfolio was purchased their wholesale market.

    Squadhelp allows listing in Afternic (for a one time fee)

    Unlike the other two; Squadhelp sales reports
    Many NPers success SH! (Yellow)

    Squadhelp recent added; "time to sell"

    BrandPa and BrandBucket;
    No wholesale market.
    Rigid exclusivity
    (No listing afternic like SH)
    No disclosure sales... If ever
    De-list from BB after 30 days
    from notification!

    BrandPa
    Doesnt curate; potential issue,
    Some people may report better sales
    100% acceptance rate; just pay fee.
    Charge more for new clients

    I have no sedo bb sq bp accounts as well.
    I don't think that selling on bb sq bp really works they are just makes money on domainers for listing fee submissions, logos etc..

    sold a few on flippa.
    sold on Epik
    sold on dan (but no sales for the last 1-2 months starting thinking something wrong with dan🤔)
    Afternic. a few sales for the last month even domain parked on dan ppl go with godaddy or afternic 🤔 Dan not working as a sales platform. if no sales on the next month I will move to another nameservers to Epik or Afternic

    I have sold alot of names at Brandpa in the last 3 years. I prefer there lower commission, no coins/internal fake currency to submit names and are not control freaks like SH. I get to pick the price I want to list for on my own names.

    There are not made up names only on brandable markets mostly 2 words and keyword based one words. Entirely made up seems to be lesser than before.

    You can sell a good domain anywhere obviously but if you want a logo and not to deal with the customer Or fake offers the brandable sites can be helpful. No guarantees just like anywhere else.

    On names I know are very solid I don’t feel the need to go the brandable site route and have been handling those on my own.

    SH, BP, BB, are good choices for brandables. I am not currently involved too much with these names, but the sites above are ok. @Samer is right by the way I agree 100%.

    I tried listing a few names at SH but I find their conditions atrocious. Maybe something has changed since, but back then it was required to point the domain to their nameservers and not list the name anywhere else, while they were taking a 30% cut. All the while I couldn't submit a domain to their contests without it being listed exclusively at SH. I like the idea in principle, but the execution is bad, many things are just shouting Greed (like: when you submit someone else's name and it's chosen, you get the contest award and the domain owner gets a sale; but when you submit your own name, you get the sale minus 30% commission but you don't get the contest award, why the hell not?).

    Brandbucket I never tried, I had a few domains listed on Brandpa for ~2 years with zero results so I removed them eventually.

    Brandables need quality and quantity to work. Six names are not enough I think.

    i agree i just threw them on there like any other marketplace while trying to sell them with outbound
    both SH and BB got way too many domains and not enough buyers(the problem every marketplace in this business have even NP)

    Samer, you are a great guy!

    But still forming the drastic opinions on services you are not using or barely using is not quite right.

    I have 350 names with BB, over 100 with SH, about 200 with BP.

    SH performance is the worst among the three.

    @WhoaDomain.com being on brandable marketplaces is just another basket for your eggs. Diversifies your portfolio. Normally, they outperform Afternic, DAN etc. in sell through ratio, but the trade-off is that they take higher commission, require forwarding and have other restrictions.

    ....but buyers would find yer name if they want it anyway.....on gd or others..and especially thru yer lander....

    even if yer not listed on those brand markets

    its thru their lander they find u anyway.... so what is the point of using them....just have a lander and pay way less fee too........

    all u who sell through those markets simply cannot logically and 100% say their names would not sell otherwise, if they had not listed on those markets.. caiuse a name can be and sell only at one spot at a time..

    I would have zero problem listing all my names at SH for 30% commission if I could also list them elsewhere and use whatever lander I like. I think it would be beneficial to both sides. If they're confident my names will sell through SH, why do they require a lander? SH wants to eat a cake and have a cake at the same time. And the recent move where they list SH-listed names on other marketplaces just makes it uglier.

    I agree, I have all my names accepted at SH but I want to use Epik landers, and so all my SH domains have been delisted.

    exactly... the need for their lanbders is my #1 beef too... u put it well saying if theyre confident, they should not have this requirement.

    which means most names sell through their lander.. which means u can put any lander there.. even free bodis.. and if your name is meant to sell and needed, the buyer will buy it. for 2% escrow fee not 30%.

    but they trick poeple like this.. needing them to use their 30% landers.. making them believe people sell thru their market.. cause we all know its imposible to tell that yer name would also sell thru any lander... if it wasnt on theirs.. cause same name cant be or sell on 2 landers at once. so its nice ol trick. which i aint buying...for 30%

    I have read there on the NamePros SH pays for good posts, 'sales', reviews etc.. just search on NamePros.
    Those platforms was made by good marketers not domainers or investors and I don't like 30% commission why not 50%?

    places like SH have their place for certain types of brandables, many of which would otherwise never be discovered without their marketplace/contests etc. it's a tradeoff that sometimes makes sense. I do dislike though that when you win a contest with your own name you don't get the contest money, my fault for not reading but didn't even know it was a thing until it happened to me.

    i understand but i felt like you were trying to say that the threads in buyer request for those type of domains is just advertising for SH and BB and that they are not real
