    ah ok so this has nothing to do with additional bigger amount chargeback risk or such? maybe hence my confusion.
    i guess the whole chargeback risk thing to be clear, is when u limit buyer to 2k payment only via paypal right? ty

    Good morning @alcy,

    No this has nothing to do with the risk of chargebacks as you can request a Paypal payout regardless of the payment method chosen by the buyer. It is the currency that remains the same. In addition, the buyer is limited at $1000 as we cover all the risks of chargebacks for our users as a service.

    Have a great day.

    Hi @LaszloSchenk,

    At the start of April, DAN announced this on Twitter:

    "It's time to update your portfolio, DAN sellers

    We've started a buyer acquisition campaign and are sending good traffic to our search page. Make use of this extra exposure and add prices to your domains for example!"

    Do you by any chance have any update on the progress of this campaign, some details about what are the activities that are taking place, and maybe even give some examples of what we can look out for?

    Thanks,

    Al

    @LaszloSchenk
    and one more thing about lead import:
    i just tried for first time to import lead as negotiation, usualy i import sale price.. and buyer replied with offer.. even if in this case it was same as my first import price.. so my questions are;

    can u please add buyer country and ip like in regular offers? i noticed in lead window nego these are not there.

    also, can u tell me what exactly it means or are at which stage addd lead negotiation goes from unconfirmed section to confirmed? is it when they click some email link ? or when they actually reply to an offer oficially?? most of my added leads are still in unconfirmed section.. so what this means? plz also reply to my msg above. ty for yer time.

    Good morning @alcy,

    When importing a lead you should add the offer the buyer submitted to you as a starting point for your negotiations.

    Besides, I will relay your request to our product team. However, as you already had contact with the person in question it would presumably make sense you already know where one is located. Lastly, it is correct that when a lead uses our confirmation link in the email that the imported negotiation/transaction is moved from unconfirmed to the confirmed section.

    Have a great day!

    ok ty for this info
    the only comment is that it is incorrect for dan to assume we know or ask about buyer location just because we received lead, from this or that source. therefore if u can add all this like in regular nego, then plz do. should be just copy paste of code.. given u already hve all this implemented in regular offer window. ty.

    Good morning @Alexej K,

    Since the post was released we have been working a lot on buyer acquisition. Through it, we drive increased traffic to our homepage. Unfortunately, I cannot communicate our entire strategy here as it would become too easy for the industry's copycats to take advantage of it.

    To give you an impression of the traffic we relay to our homepage please consult this link: https://www.similarweb.com/website/dan.com/

    Have a great day!

    great news
    sadly for most like me so far results aren't there and no sales or even offers thru yer market.
    no increase either

    what would be amazing is to asctually get your actual stats on how many sales or offers come thru people coming thru redirect landers vs yer market. im sure yoru system can distinguish the two. hopefully u can share. given my own experience and others mentions here, i would expect sales thru yer market directly to be virtually non existent or maybe 1% of what yer direct lander sales might be via dns. ty

    I am sending all my domains traffic to DAN, but no sales. Sales have been happening in other marketplaces.
    I didn't mean to them buying my domains.

    Marketplace has been tuned in such a way that it completely ignores some extensions.

    thats true
    i find their add lead option excellent.
    working in basically all leads that are solid and serious to begin with.

    i was on their landers for while and had few offers. but either unpaid or not concluding in price negotiations.

    based on comments here, seems dan doesn't work for many or maybe most people... lander wise.. or even way worse just having offers/sales thru market directly.

    im sure dan has stats to say otherwise, but i am definitely hearing otherwise here too from people. and me too.

    its okay to just become a lead finalizing comapny too.. if it works well.. which it does.. they make money.. domainers make sales.. everyone stil happy.. but original aim of dan wasn't this I suppose.. so there is potential for more.. with proper advertizing and marketing etc. i guess its not easy to become like godaddy in popularity .. or sedo... but u gotta try.

    @LaszloSchenk

    Is it possible to change the default color scheme (green) on our for sale pages at DAN? Tried changing the colors on individual for sale page listings, had no effect.

    It would be a great if DAN offered more than one color scheme for the for sale landing pages and let us choose which is the default color scheme in the for sale page settings.

    Good idea?

    Would like to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Does anyone know if there is a way to have your Dan.com portfolio sort domains alphabetical by default?

    @LaszloSchenk

    with all respect to u and all dan company, except for yer coders:


    well i was just about to make yer newly fixed bugged for years public folio link as official public link to my names in my namepros signature.. then possibly also use it elsewhere for clients to show my domains too... but before I did it, a little bird told me to my ear to click on few pages.. especially the last ones, to see if all is well...... well.... guess what.. all is everything but well... looks like u may need to hire new coders.. the fix we all waited for so long for and u advertized as fixed... is showing same 50 domains for X last pages on my folio.. of course, i don't assume its just my folio.. and i haven't checked on how many pages it just keeps copying first page of folio.. but i checked at least last 7 pages.. which of course is already 1 too many... so in other words... page 1 of my folio = page 37 = page 36 = page 35.. etc etc

    hope u get it fixed soon. preferably before advertizing it as fixed publically.

    i am going to take wild guess here and conclude your coders got lazy and whatever exceeded 500 domains bug before, they just copied and duplicated from page1. and then called it a fix.. perhaps u should investigate this laziness... of course i am slightly exagerating here, and just trying to bring humor to a really unfunny situation.. the coders probably didn't get lazy... and just lack competence.

    i mean imagine how yer clients feel after basically begging u for years to fix the folio 500 limit bug.. and then yer coders do this by aparently duplicating first page of folio on whatever exceeds 500 names.

    Nope. But that's a great idea for another admin settings option for DAN users.

    Good morning @wisdoms,

    There is currently nothing to report regarding this yet. However, I will make sure to update you as soon as any developments take place.

    Have a great day.

    Dear Alcy,

    Besides the previous update, there are no details for us to share publicly. The statement that our landers do not work for many or most people can be made but is wrong. We grow rapidly on a monthly basis in traffic, domains, and sales revenue. The For Sale pages are favored and we receive nothing but positive remarks regarding it. New signups and existing medium and large portfolio holders regularly notify us of the improvements they experience while using our platform as opposed to former alternatives. This renders out that DAN.COM will only become a lead finalizing company.

    Regarding the public portfolio, thank you for notifying us. I will inform the product team and have it resolved asap.

    Have a great day.
