    I had done a past deal on Flippa, Where me & buyer agreed for other amount but I put the low bin on that name. My buyer simply hit that BIN & later paid me the amount on which we have agreed.

    I think it's pretty fine with such a generic domain unless you have software ads on it or something silly like this.

    Yep, and has 123 registrations in different extensions :). It's no doubt an exceptional name; NameBio shows just a tiny slice of sales data.

    At least as of now the DNS on bonjour still redirect to the previous owner, LearnFrenchFree, although not surprising even in big sales for contact/DNS take awhile to redirect. I note they have in small print at bottom of page that their previous domain name is for sale, so it seems like it was not held by a domain investor but actively used by a company. Seems strange to give up your established domain name and replace it with a three word one, and only get $$$ for the old one.

    I am not sure if anyone has posted this, don't think so, but according to Whois there has been no change in the records for the domain name since July 17, 2018. Surely if sold there should be? The domain has been registered since 1995 btw.

    Awesome domain, i remember looking on Flippa a few days ago and seeing a reserve of $200k+.

    If i was the owner I'd contact NameBio and get the $220 sale removed as it may devalue the domain, but even then this thread is now forever on Google, potential buyers Googling the domain 1,2, 5 or 10 years from now and believing the domain sold for $220 once upon a time a go, that's not good when your asking for 6 figures+

    If this is the owners doing, made a big mistake. If this is a typo error from NameBio or Flippa and i was the owner of the domain I'd want it correcting straight away, I'd also see about getting this threads title changed if it's not a mistake on the owners part.

    A sale finalization takes time, but this won't be the case here I guess. Yet a good point regarding the latest Whois change date, this probably means that the owner of the name hasn't changed within the previous months.
    Edited: Hm, though wait, this is a Whois privacy record...

    I have never sold on Flippa but I notice that the listing for this says:

    Negotiated Post Public Auction

    It shows that there was one bid for $30,000 but that bidding reached $220.
    So what does this all mean, those of you who are expert in Flippa (I have never sold there)? Thanks for clarification.

    I don't know if the owner is French, but the French and other Europeans use the comma for decimals and the dot to group thousands, which is the opposite of the US notation.
    So I could imagine the owner blindly typed 220.000 meaning 220K but the script quietly interpreted the amount as $200 as per US locale settings.

    That probably explains some lowball offers received at other sites.
    Also, there are not so smart people thinking they are submitting an offer in their own currency, not USD.

    Wow, it says:
    Sold by Negotiation
    $30,000 USD
    Guess I am the only one that bothered to click on 1 bid link and see it sold for $30K. What most likely happened was he has a reserve that was never met or he ended auction early via offer. When auction ended he got a genuine offer and sold for $30K by negation. I think namebio only picks up bids on flippa so when it showed the xxx amount it shows that but it's clear that it sold by offer accepted of $30K. Image attached.
    Edit: Just noticed it says, "Negotiated Post Public Auction", so that explains what happened.

    @strong you may want to correct this.
    I own bonjour.us and if someone references your false info it's going to cause some confusion.

    If I had to guses from what know I'd say it sold for $220,000.
    The bidder at 30k said his bid wasn't High Enough

    Oh, strong namebio staff, you kept mention the name had to remain strong to figure out what you were talking about. Mr. @strong can you fix this thread?

    Fixed, thanks for the heads up. The bid history clearly shows $30,000 so that's the price I put. Their recently sold feed still shows $220 though, I guess there's a glitch in their system:

    Thank you Michael for confirming the actual price and updating the sales report!
    That proves that simple explanations are usually the most likely ones.

    Now i think it would be very good if the Admins change the thread title... So that the wrong info born by pure mistake would not stay in the G cache for too long. As it could harm the new owner, the future sales, etc.

    But it's very risky! What if the buyer won't honor the second part of the deal? You risk loosing either domain or your Flippa account.
