    Question : I do not understand what is the criteria of the search results...let's put some examples.

    My domain : domain names com .com, not on the first

    how comdomainnames < -------------- is more relevant than domain names com .com
    or what about LLL domain names. - -but this not only happens to me, there are even other very good ones with low priority ..like " domainnamespro " great domain after iodomainnames.co ... aaaDomainNames ... ensdomainname... for real!!


    ---- here another example.: tel / eventos (a misspelled domain with more priority than) the domain well written.

    The search results are based on submission date or what?

    Good morning @gipson,

    Thank you for checking in with us.

    The search results are based on more than just TLDs and keywords. Names that are parked with higher levels of traffic and leads rank better for example. In order to rank better, it is highly recommended to park the domains with us as well.

    Have a great week.

    @LaszloSchenk
    I don't think the 1% discount for wire-transfers would appeal to anyone but, those who already intend to use bank transfer which i assume is a very small percentage of buyers,
    and wires don't exactly translate to 'Easy,hassle free payments', especially to those who are used to using credit-cards.

    This could more specifically affect those who opt for 'lease-to-own' option for big purchases.
    Could you imagine the annoying dilemma every single month, of either having to pay 2% over the top of pre-existing mark-ups or choosing the tedious wire-transfer for a small discount, which definitely isn't a substitute for the convenience of credit-cards for recurring payments.

    This could very well be a recurring nightmare for price conscious buyers..

    Good morning @Innoverge,

    Thank you for raising this concern.

    On many platforms, you pay an additional fee for the usage of credit cards. I understand that assumption made but the data shows this is not affecting the sales so far. We are one of the few who monitor the dropout rate closely and have found no difference. In addition, the majority experiencing problems with this payment method reach out to our support desk. We have found no noticeable difference in outreaches now that we grant your client a 1% discount on their purchase for using wire transfers as a payment method. Rather, this option only ensures that the purchase becomes more affordable for your buyers.

    That being said, we will keep monitoring the effects of it closely.

    Have a great day.

    If i had to ask something from DAN is to allow the seller to accept the buyer's initial offer even if the seller made a counter offer.

    For how long? It’s understandable to think that the buyer made an offer on a different domain after receiving a counter offer

    One week would be perfect. Buyer could be warned that the seller has the right to accept his first offer if counter offer was rejected by him.

    My thoughts are, with BIN's the buyer might just use the credit card anyways, despite the 2% surcharge and just get over it, some might even consider the 1% discount for wires an incentive and opt for it but,
    with monthly installment transactions choosing wire-transfers becomes less about the 1% discount and more and more about avoiding the 2% convenience fee on credit cards every single time, if you catch my drift.
    I would rather want to avoid a sense of unease creeping in for buyers making monthly payments.

    I understand why you would want to compare yourself to other marketplaces here but, it wouldn't exactly be accurate with variables like 'lease-to-own' option, which i assume constitutes a significant part of your sales.

    I'm sure you'll have your data and do what's necessary, when required.

    @DAN.COM is there a possibility to reset "revenue total overall" or only show this year's revenue only? For example, show only 2021 revenues in 2021 and only show 2022 revenues in 2022 like below:

    Guess there's no point listing domains on Dan unless you are using Dan landers. Absolutely zero views my domains at Dan (on Epik landers), pointless listing them there if nobody will ever see them.

    And we have a winner! Congrats @MasterOfMyDomains! We'll send you a PM to arrange to send you the $500 price you won with guessing when Dan.com would overtake Sedo in traffic.

    Don't get us wrong, we like working with Sedo and hope Sedo will join our open domain distribution network in the near future.

    Why this is an important moment for us is the milestone we've just hit. Before we started Dan we used to sell our domains at legacy marketplaces and our frustration with those platforms got us fired up to build the next generation's domain marketplace.

    In August 2021, after +8 years of relentless non-stop hard work, many ups and downs, and continually improving our marketplace, we finally got there and have overtaken the company that inspired us to enter the domain industry.

    Thank you all for being part of our journey and remember, this is just the beginning. The bigger Dan gets, the more resources we can dedicate to keep pushing it and introducing new features, business models, and more for our users.

    Congrats again @MasterOfMyDomains,

    Dan

    There's an unwritten law in the domain industry. When you have for example 500 domains and you list those next to 12.6M and counting domains, your domains compete with those names and so you might not get much action. However, when you operate 10,000 domains, that significantly increases your chance to compete with other portfolios on an open market.

    This is also one of the reasons why specific niche marketplaces with little inventory can perform well for you, in terms of listing only, compared to marketplaces like Dan since you compete with fewer competitors.

    Long story short, if you're not getting any eyeballs on our marketplace, considering adding more domains to your portfolio or use our for sale pages to improve your domain ranking in our search. Our search will rank domains with traffic, leads, negotiations etc higher. So get busy and you'll succeed at Dan as well!

    Kind regards,

    Dan

    @LaszloSchenk Can you guys please consider letting sellers opt out of email notifications when adding domains to Dan.com and deleting domains from Dan.com? I'm getting so many unneeded emails and I really wish there would be an option not to get all these emails. I'm sure many other users would be thankful as well if Dan.com could implement such an option. Thanks for the consideration.

    Good morning @SuperBrander,

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. Without the reports, you would not know for certain if your names are or aren't added/deleted. If a domain import or delete would fail, the reports would notify you of it and indicate the reason for failure.

    @LaszloSchenk Thanks. Can't these reports be in the account somewhere instead of being sent via emails? Having the option to see what was added and what failed can be helpful, but why in the form of an email? But even if an email needs to be sent while adding domains (which some platforms do), why does every single domain that's being deleted requires an email? I'm not familiar with any other domain platform that sends people emails every time they delete a domain. I love Dan.com, but this specific issue is quite annoying. I hope your team can consider some sort of an improvement in that regard. Thanks again for the consideration.

    Received fake offer on @DAN.COM.
    Why spammers are making fake offers after confirming email and phone number on Dan.

    What action Dan is taking against them?

    They should block their e-mail and phone number.
    What do you think NP community?

    Good morning @td11,

    At the moment this is not possible. The dashboard only shows the total revenue but we have a separate section in your general settings called the revenue section which displays your total revenue per month and the allocated years as well.

    Have a great weekend ahead.

    Good morning @SuperBrander,

    Thank you for your response and further explanation.

    We do not do this on a per-domain basis but provide a report with every bulk action you perform. If you delete one domain at the time or add one domain at the time you will receive multiple reports indeed as we need to provide a status update to prevent undesired situations from happening. If you want to delete a domain but for some particular reason could not delete it, the report would notify you of it. However, I will still relay your feedback to our product team of course!

    Have a great weekend ahead.
