    Glad to hear that a screenshot is an option but not required. Instead, simple consent, via email, from both the buyer and seller is enough. Thanks for clarifying.

    @Andreia Soares -

    Thank you for your post and clarification.

    Curious, why the need for a new transfer protocol?

    Why not simply keep the prior ( highly efficient ) member-to-member push in place and simply add an "Accept/Decline" question on the receiving end?

    This would provide you confirmation tracking along with accountability, and also provide you an exception report when multiple "Declines" occurred.

    I guess I'm trying to understand the thought process to why the change was made.

    It seems like you are adding additional overhead (and labor cost) to an already efficient process.

    Thanks,

    -Cougar

    @Andreia Soares Thank you for the clarification.
    TLDR - Email from both the parties for a successful push makes sense.

    Hello!

    It is more time consuming for the BB admin, that part is true, and the reason the field was added in the first place a while back was because our support was overloaded at the time. Other than now having a support “team” rather than a support “person” now (so us needing to offload work to the sellers is no longer needed), by having the field we lost visibility into how domains were moving around which helps us gauge marketplace health, and we discovered that the functionality was unfortunately being abused by some sellers.
    We can implement strong tools in the backend to allow pushes again that are secure and trackable. I agree with this, and it’s on the product roadmap, but the workaround for the meantime is to email support.
    Selling names in private is fine. Selling names that are removed (after 30 day notice) is also fine, as it selling “appraised” names that aren’t yet published. Just no sales of published names on public platforms please.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you again!

    -A

    I still don't understand the purpose of confirmation from both parties. The previous "push" name was simple & straight forward.

    If BB think about some kind of abusive then they should implemented the "Conformation link" to current owner before getting pushed or would have considered "Two factor authentication" things.

    Hi!

    We are working on a new process for the transfer, this change is only temporary until we release a different mechanism to transfer names.

    @Coinking, BB published a lot of names the past few days (313 in the past 7 days) I hope one of them was yours :)

    Is it showing in your dashboard as PENDING EDITORIAL? Like this?

    Once it reaches this stage it should take about 10 days to be published. However the time varies sometimes it takes only 3-5 days. But that is unusual. Sometime it takes 2 weeks. I would say 10 days is about average. It depends on the volume of domains coming in each week/month.

    What does this mean— and we discovered that the functionality was unfortunately being abused by some sellers.

    How can pushing domains be abusive and what defines that? Thanks

    SSL
    =====
    I am noting BB saying there is no more support for SSL forwarding. BB are telling me SSL will not work on forwarded names.

    But I have forwarding working fine on SSL example nuggo.com.

    Anyone any thoughts on the SSL situation? The way it's going to go in Chrome, it's going be more and more of advantage to get the little padlock. This is a no brainer @Andreia Soares!

    This is really a big development. I wonder how exactly the integration with Sedo will work, but as long as we net the same amount at both places, I don't see any downsides.

    I have signed up and am eager to see how my names will display at Sedo.

    If we choose the new Expanded Promotion option our BB published domains appear on Sedo just like any other listing. Here's one of mine: Everbots.com

    If I click on Buy Now I get this payment window

    There is no indication that it's a BB listed domain. Meanwhile if someone types in EverBots.com they get the standard BB landing page since our NS remains pointed at BB.

    The seller is paid through their BB dashboard just as before.

    I hope the integration with Sedo will work and will provide more sales - I also like this:

    Each month, we will bring you a couple of tips that we have noticed through our time as a marketplace, trends and sale patterns.

    - While the phrase “FinTech” has made Fin as an abbreviation for Financial more mainstream, we haven’t yet seen much buyer adoption for Fin as part of a compound company name.

    - Another unpopular abbreviation is "Fash". Though many can see if as a shorter version for “fashion”, we have not seen much buyer interest for names with “fash” as part of a keyword pair.

    - "Crypt" and "crypto" are not interchangeable. Currently, "crypto" is a hot word while "crypt" is not as trendy. Crypt leads people to think more about encryption rather than cryptocurrency.

    So what is Sedo getting out of this? Sure they aren’t doing it out of the goodness of their hearts. Honestly not sure what to think of it. I guess the results will speak for themselves

    I find that Fin part interesting. Other sales sources disagree and surmise fin is a valuable word based on reported sales. Especially at the start of the word.Finance is obviously valuable but makes for long two word names.

    I guess Sedo and BB just split the commission. Probably BB has reached an agreement with Sedo about their commission on the sale, so BB will keep a fraction of their 30% commission and Sedo will receive another fraction - if that's the case, BB would be cashing in a smaller net commission in hope to achieve a larger number of sales - a matter of volume vs net commission.

    As long as the name is sold and the seller receives the same amount of money, I guess everything should be ok.

    I'm guessing that BB and Sedo have made an agreement and Sedo gets paid out of the BBs commission.

    Edited to add: Posted at the same time as RozasMD.

    Hey, Quick question - and not sure BB will actually share this - but, wondering if the average portfolio size, across Domainers, is known. I can mess with math based on % info in the dash - but not that big of a deal, just curious. Thanks,

    a) Will BB provide us 70% of the Sedo sale? (minus logo fee)

    or

    b) Will BB provide us 70% of the Sedo 85% proceeds? (minus logo fee) [Sedo charges 15% for a BIN sale]



    A = 70%
    B = 59.5% (70% of 85%)

    I've sent an email to [email protected] asking for clarification.
