I sold Jump/lo.com
Hope you can breath now.
It's not coming up on their recent sales. What did you get for it ?
But okay, bravo, 1 out of 400.
They stopped posting their "recent " sales under "recent" sales a while ago....those are all old past sales. JS
"Alternative to BB" sounds kinda "second choice". As a competitor, BP should not introduce its potential buyers to other marketplace.
I guess they should stop calling it "recent sales" on their website.
Even though BrandPa removed Paypal as a payment option with no prior warning via email or on their website, and I have requested my account to closed because of that, they are still forcing me to follow their 30 day rule to close the account. I post this email for anyone else considering closing their account because of their sudden removal of paypal:

Thank you for your reply.
I would like to confirm that your request for the removal of your domains from Brandpa has been accepted. Your domains are going to expire with Brandpa on 29/05/2019 as per terms & conditions.
Please note, once your domain is expired, any text, logos, and visuals that Brandpa created for that domain, will be permanently lost and you cannot use them. Brandpa reserves the right to re-use any of these assets for future domain listings. If after the expiry date, you decide to have this name to be relisted, you will need to cover $5 listing fee again.
We will also close your account as requested on 29/05/2019

All similar marketplaces use the same style so what is the deal? I see no difference.As for Paypal, they will accept and consider case by case as they said so I dont see why you would think it is an issue. Brandpa is the only marketplace I saw so far, which would try to send the payment to you, no matter what it takes them. They are really very committed to that and that is one of the things I like about them.
Congrats @DomainsMaven for the sale and confirming it. @Brapda @Jowita Emberton marketplace has been the best marketplace for me in the last two years and I hope it continues to be like that.
Everyone has the same policy of a 30 day notice.
I don't recall seeing that if the branding company takes away your payment method without warning, they get to screw you one more time for 30 days. I guess I have to go back and look for it.
Maybe I should take this whole mess and go post it in a few places to warn those who dont even know it happened yet because the way I found out was to have to log back into the BP website.
From what I understand, they have said that they will make exceptions. So, if you sell within 30 days, you can ask for PP payment. So should be the same for you for the 30 day period.
This was last year policy (archive.org). I was also annoyed with 30day policy because they changed policy after I signed up and submited my names.
What's going on with Brandpa this month? My stats have basically frozen in place and the site's average hotness score is hovering near 0. It doesn't seem like anything has changed in weeks.
Wow, no posts in this thread for 3 months? What happened here? Also, I just had a 4L rejected by them. I've sold 2 names with Brandpa and have been very happy with their customer service, but you can't reject a 4L at any level in my opinion. Very disappointing.
Innovation has won out, I started with Brandpa as a noobie, it was a very rough journey with lack of direction, I pledge all my efforts to SquadHelp now, they contribute to the survival of new domainers. Brandpa is too late due to lack of effort in the past. I do feel they are trying now. but too late for me. Sorry.
I have around 16 four letter on BP with around 6-7 four letter rejected , It totally depends on the name.
Is there any information about how many domains are published at BP?
You're right, there are many 4Ls out there that cannot be branded. I submitted e/x/z/l.com
I still think it's a premium 4L because it sounds similar to "excel" and has not been previously branded. For it to be outright rejected was a bit surprising IMO. I'll move onto BrandBucket.
Its a nice name and pronounceable one , Best of luck !!
That's domaining for you. Remember buying a domain I considered great, but it was rejected on all brand markets. I equally gave up on the name and allowed it to drop because for almost a year it had no view.
I was surprised to receive a congratulatory mail from Afternic about the sale of the domain. By then I have already dropped it and forgot to delist it from Afternic.
Not that I'm aware of at this
What was the domain if you don't mind me asking?
I am about to pull the remaining names I have there.
Traffic to my names has plummeted. I have a "hotness" score of well under 1.0 but the average is 1.9 I see. My names have been listed there 600 something days now. Only two sales, in the very beginning of that time. Since then - nothing. There are no way for me to see the stats of the names there other than their "last 90 days" stats, which provides some information, but not enough. Is it bot traffic, who knows. Cant see it. The ability to add google analytics to our listings would be incredibly valuable.
I also cant tell if people are making offers and seeing any sort of message indicating that their offer is too low. I would love for someone to try to make an offer for a name and get a message back, you're offer of X was not in the range that seller has set. Do you wish to increase your offer? At this point they could also offer us the ability to still receive the offer if its within, say, some percentage of our bottom line. I may be willing to sell a domain for 10-15% under my lowest price if I am not getting any offers on it for 600+ days and someone comes along with a decent offer (not a $10, $50, $75 lowball but an offer in a set percentage UNDER the floor price I have set).......
I've made those suggestions 18 months ago. They were well received but nothing came of it. Honestly, I think the time to exit is coming..... I can say that I gave it a shot there.
well, obv. this bad press will only fuel BP's efforts. So i'll probably stay there for a few.
I might stop adding names tehre tho...
the problem with adding names to SH is that they have no slack... so you can't sail on NP... which makes your domains illiquid.
BP has a great reseller platform where you can sail to other members for prices that you wouldn't even believe on nP.
SquadHelp has an entire wholesale aftermarket. it kills any other options with any other site. slack is nothing compared to an entire market of reseller prices on live branding site live premiums
Brandpa ended up accepting this domain and another after a second review.
Today I was warned by BrandPa not to sell their domains at NP for wholesale prices, even though I have masked domain. Is there any other place where you can sell BrandPa domains for wholesale prices without violating their terms?
