    For example:

    What happens if you move all your domains parked at Sedo to Efty, Bodis, Afternic, or Undeveloped (Dan)?
    Do you make more and more fair sales then? Sedo is discouraging bids, and encouraging nonpayments.

    Does adding domains to SedoMlsPremium, or AfternicDls help?
    I don't use them, because domains are difficult to add, edit, and remove once added. But if they will sell, I would. If my asking price is 1/4 of minimum of Estibot and Godaddy estimates, will domains sell quickly?

    Most sales at DNJ are Sedo sales, but it might be related to a special agreement between dnj and Sedo, or other marketplaces might not be reporting.
    Reporting sales makes a marketplace more trustable in my opinion.

    Nobody can accurately predict sales prices. You need to take all predicted prices with a fistful of salt. It depends on how deep the buyers pockets are, and whether they are good negotiators. But even before that you have to find the buyer(s). Even brokers (whose job it is to know the market) get surprised by sales prices. It is my impression that Estibot lags in pricing whereas GoDaddy's estimates lead pricing. Both are inaccurate for basing your sales prices on. IMHO.

    That's the sour grapes. Which isn't really the reason for this post. I have added only a few domains to Afternic's Premium Network, primarily to test the waters, because sales were slow. It has proved very successful for me. Going from Zero to Hero in only a few short months. My intention is to add as many domains as possible to Afternic's Premium Network. Time permitting. It's not that difficult to add them. It's the individual research needed to determine the price for every domain, which takes the time.

    Afternic's Network covers pretty much all of Sedo's network but definitely has more outlets. I don't particularly care for Sedo methods of operation, as outlined above. But that's more a personal preference. I really dislike the fact you have to point to their servers so they can check ownership. I understand the reason, but it's extremely tiresome with many domains. When I have done this in the past for my portfolio, I sold maybe 1 domain every couple of years. So my sales on Afternic this year have been like a breath of fresh air.

    SedoMLS has no any benefits, because GoDaddy is NOT covered by Sedo.

    As for me, I use only Bodis and ParkingCrew...
    I prefer the direct negotiations without any intermediaries.

    My Afternic sales far exceed those of other marketplaces. Love the exposure of my premium network names. As long as I price my names as fair as I believe I can , they seem to sell on Afternic.

    I recently started moving my domains from Sedo parking to Epik parking with AfternicDls Premium. I haven't seen any sudden jump in sales but I am linking the prospects. Afternic Premium gives me access to Godaddy market with I don't have with SedoMls Premium.

    I will keep testing this till the end of the year. Hopefully, I won't have to go back to Sedo again because their business model sucks.

    You mean to say that you are using Epik Marketplace but also added the domain on Afternic? If yes, do you get enough impressions on Epik landing page?

    @topdom I would list at all the possible marketplaces you can and then park somewhere with no sales commission. So I wouldn't park at Sedo myself because I think you will always pay commission. If you want your lander going to commissioned brokers, I guess I would land with Afternic just because one of their brokers did great by me. Personally I do efty marketplace but also list on afternic, undeveloped, sedo and uniregistry.

    Yeah, on Epik Marketplace but also added to Afternic for the purpose of leveraging the Godaddy network.
    No really checking the impressions, relying more on my inbound traffic.
