    @hostkobo Good question!

    BB allows its sellers to submit domain names for review and acceptance ($1 fee) whether the BB seller owns the domain or not.

    Sometimes I submit a name for review and it is accepted but I choose not to buy it. In those cases I offer others in this thread the option to buy it and resubmit it to BB ($1 fee) where it is auto-accepted and then published.

    BB normally charges a $9 publishing fee but for the past several months they have waived the publishing fee and so it's free to publish once a name is accepted. This can change at anytime. So get your domains in now :)

    @Keith DeBoer I thought the BB listing fee is waived but I have 6 accepted names and I am being made to pay $10 each ($60 total) as payment for listing. Promo gone?

    You must have an old account. As Cougar has said, send an email to BB and ask to be placed on the Growth Program

    Cheers!

    The GrowthProgram went into effect Jan 5th, 2017. Any accounts created before that date will be on the old program.

    This discussion (my fault) is a bit off topic. So if you need any more info send me a direct message or visit the BrandBucket Experience thread.

    I made a big post there explaining the whole thing with cost/savings calculator, downloads etc.

    If we submit unregistered names, what if people who appraise domains at BB register these names for themselves if they think the names are good. Is there a some kind of company policy that prohibits it?

    IMO If you are afraid it is so good that someone might reg it, it is probably worth regging it ASAP.
    By the way I have 8 names submitted and accepted in BB before handregging and had no problems with them.

    @Keith DeBoer

    I recently submitted names to BB for first time and two names were approved. I saw a publishing fee of $0 in front of them. However after proceeding to the next page, it is still showing me $10 fees. Currently these names are in "Pending editorial" status.

    In seller rules, I can see this note:

    “At this time, the $9 listing fee is being waived for all published names. This is a special promotion and subject to change at any time.”

    So, there is a fee or not? If yes, I will have to pay listing fees after names move beyond pending editorial status or these names have been exempted already?

    I am dealing with BB for first time and I don't have much idea about the listing process.

    Hi @nitg16,

    It sounds like you opened your BB account before Jan 2017 and are on the old program. If you send an email to [email protected] they will put you on the Growth Program at no charge.

    In fact you will get $10 in credits for future domain submission/appraisals.

    Under the Growth Program you can submit any domain, even ones you don't own, by paying a $1 appraisal fee. Any domains that are accepted can be published for a $9 publishing fee. However, at the present time, the publishing fee is being waived for those on the Growth Program.

    I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Cheers!

    I created a new account 6 days back and I have already received 10 credits.

    At what stage BB prompts for listing fees payment? Before "Pending Editorial" or after that?

    What is the average review time for BB submissions?

    Submitted one on the 16th , reviewed by the next day.
    Still no reply for the ones submitted on the 18th,presumably because of weekend?

    Just a note but I also was getting notified that there was a $10 publishing charge but when I published any names, it does not ask for payment. Seems like they are waiving publishing fees like Keith stated but it may not be clear on first appearances.
