    Congrats @alcy .

    There is one thing people keep doing.
    Talking about an ongoing negotiation on namepros..

    Anyone looking to buy a domain will find namepros if he/she googles "domain for sale", or "domain name trading", or anything related to selling domain names.

    Chances the canadian corporate buyer knows about NP, some percent..

    Chances the broker tasked with closing the deal on behalf of the client has done some research and found about np, very very high %.

    I've seen other threads where people were being tactical, talking about their ongoing negotiation saying things like "the name is worth much more, if I wait a little I can get a better offer" type of stuff.
    But you in this case have given waaaaaaayy (!!!) too much info lol.

    Glad you got 4k.
    But next time, watch out.
    You can share a negotiation once it's done.
    If you need help, message experienced members for advice.
    Then when it's done, you can choose to share on NP.

    as far as things that should not be done or shared on np... I have seen a million others worst ones.

    i think this is fine.

    especially since you seem the only one to say it is not.

    do appreciate the concern though. i know you mean well to me and all others.

    cheers

    Depends on the name, but you know that AbdulBasit always counters those like a pro and ends up with more ^_^.

    I myself have sacrificed a lot in the past but of course no regrets because I knew what I was doing by selling cheap. But I wanted to come in strong position so one day I can ask what I want for any particular domain.

    Still I keep selling for low IMO, but those I do for low tier domains so I can hold mid-high tier domains for the best possible prices.

    It takes time because many of us don't have enough cash flow to sustain for long period of time. So we need to keep selling domains bit lower than what we are ideally looking to sell it for.

    It really depends on how much you think it is worth. Some names i wouldn't sell under 6 figures. Sometimes the initial offer was higher than you'd expected.

    Sometimes offers don't convert to actual sales. I've had a 5 figure offer, negotiated to a price and payment arrangement, the buyer dragged his feet, then ghosts off.

    How do they usually go for you? Do they reach out and ask if you will go lower? What do you say then or is it case by case?

    Accept it, this company only needs this name to work in toronto (canada wider) so i think they already had an other global extension
