    @DAN.COM sometimes wire arrival takes 10 minutes, sometimes 1 day. You use two different accounts for payment. Why sometimes one account? (Faster) and then next time slower wire? Why not always the faster one?

    Wire depends on bank hours, outside of this range - it will be sent next business day.

    One more suggestion to your lander...
    Please add Renewal indicator with just 2 values: Standard | Premium
    So sellers will be able to set it accordingly.

    It would be nice to have an api for adding/editing/deleting domains.

    I wonder if it would be possible for a potential buyer to make an offer that consists of payment in installments?

    I have BINs with Make Offer and installment plans on most of my domains, but if buyer wants to make an offer below my BIN, the installment option disappears, and they may not be aware it could still be available.

    Maybe it will make things too complicated. Just wondering... Of course both parties can reach out to support to set up an installment plan, but this way it could be made more clear that it is an option for a negotiated price.

    I do realise the need for this. I had one domain wherein the buyer made an offer. After negotiations, we settled down to a price lower than my BIN. While i was awaiting payment, DAN reached out to me and informed me that the buyer wishes to go for installment payments at the negotiated price.

    I did agree and complete the sale with installment payment option below the BIN price.

    You can
    You can message them to say any price you agree with them can be done in installments - that can increase their offers. If you agree price then set to fixed price installments are automatically available. Otherwise you can message Dan.com to get them to convert an accepted offer to installments.

    In any case it helps to tell buyers installments are available on offer prices.

    Yes, that is the scenario I have also used once as well.

    Yes, if I make a counter-offer, I normally inform the buyer that an installment plan is available. But I think it would be nice if a buyer could make an initial offer that includes payment in installments. Because buyers may think that installment plans are only available if they pay BIN and therefore maybe do not make an offer at all...

    Hope it makes sense :)

    Since yesterday I have moved my domains away from DAN
    using my own Landing Page again.

    lately, I had every little inquiries
    and all of them extreme low ballers


    yesterday I noticed that when using DAN
    a lot of my traffic will be taken away from my domains
    in order to search DAN's inventory
    instead of my own domains


    no idea if that changed lately
    but I don't like it at all

    when I send you my traffic
    it's not because I want to promote DAN


    I pay 9% commission in case of a sale
    that's the compensation I accepted
    for you offering a brilliant service

    but my traffic is MY traffic
    and meant to promote my domains
    I ask you to be more respectful
    and not highjacking it

    there is no information about me as an owner
    and there is no imprint ( Impressum )
    means: legaly mandantory information about the owner of that domain

    You are seeing the domain inside the marketplace, if you go direct linking a domain the layout is clean without any links

    2 types of landers at DAN.
    dan.com/buy-domain/example.tld?redirected=true
    It loads the primary sales lander, without bolded part - their internal lander will be shown.

    The issue is that you have to cede nameservers to have such page. What if you want to be in control and receive emails, for example? Only the page which is advertising Dan then.
    If you don't use their nameservers, this GET parameter won't change a thing.

    For me it works with just mentioned parameter.
    I get the same lander as for parked domains.

    This lander will be displayed when you forward a domain without using their nameservers.

    Does not work with any of my domains. Seems pretty random – if you try the "newly listed domains" on main, it works for some of them and does not for the other.

    This method with additional parameter is very old, since Undeveloped times.
    Works with all my domains.
    Browser: Chromium

    Dan uses this URL mentioned by me - when you enable Redirect mode in your account settings.
    But it can be used anywhere as well, including various parking companies.

    There is also one more optional URL parameter: tld=
    But I still don't understand its purpose (because no any changes with or without it), so I don't use it.

    This seems to solve it.

    Honestly I had no clue what this setting means:

    By enabling this feature all traffic on your domains will be forwarded to for sales pages hosted on DAN.COM, including live support. When you don't opt-in for this feature, your buyers won't see our live support widget on your for sale pages.

    Chat widget is there with or without it.

    Their chat widget doesn't appear at all with Disconnect.me extension.
    And very probably - with many other adblockers as well.
