    Good morning @Brian L.,

    At the moment it is not possible to sort domains in a public portfolio on alphabetical order. We currently have this listed with our product team still. We will let you know as soon as this moves to production.

    Have a great day.

    Hi @LaszloSchenk

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    Unfortunately, I'm probably one of those who's not seen any benefit from your activities.

    Since I took out all of my domains away from DAN on the 1st May 2020 (i.e more than 2 months ago) I have only had 2 views on the platform itself.

    Meanwhile, my own landers across 50 or so domains, generate upwards of 1,000 views/month, I've had offers coming in, and closed 7 deals since.

    To give credit where it's due, I do use DAN to import my leads and close transactions and it's always been a smooth experience, however as far as pointing to DAN and using your landers go, there just doesn't seem to be any reason to prefer that over own landing pages.

    Happy to reconsider,

    Just my experience,

    Al

    Good morning @Alexej K,

    Thank you for your response.

    Could you send me a private message with a domain that resides in your DAN.COM account? I will make sure to verify your setup and see if I can find any points to optimize your account.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    I want to know if @Alexej K makes more or less sales with/without dan landers. To me, it could be exactlty the same if there is no BIN and only make offer leads.

    Have you checked to see if the domain listing page still exists at Dan.com? Usually it does and is picked up by search engines at dan.com/buy-domain/yourdomain.com and says "Yourdomain.com has been deleted" and invites the user to shop for another domain. AFAIK that page stays up forever - what purpose does it serve?

    You may not want that page to exist, particularly if the domain is one that should not be offered for sale as that would put it at risk - then WIPO protagonists can point to pages like that and say look at the evidence, it was offered for sale.

    Indeed. The page should be 404 instead... imo such a page does not serve any purpose, especially if there was a drop and subsequent ownership change for example. It also does not help endusers who might become new owners with or without DAN marketplace, their SEO results may be affected by this irrelevant content.

    When I had all my domains pointed to DAN, only 10% of my domains had BIN price (all those in low $xxx that I had for liquidation), the rest were all Make offer.

    With my own landers they are all Make offer.

    My hypothesis:
    As far as I can tell (from small sample size) - those domains priced at $xxx sell at BIN (impulse purchases), the $x,xxx sales are from Make offers.

    In other words, if DAN isn't driving traffic, then their main advantage is to accommodate those BIN sales where the Buyer doesn't want to negotiate / communicate.

    So if one can find a way to integrate their own BIN payment processing with 3rd parties on their own landers, the platform really doesn't matter.

    @LaszloSchenk I'll reach out to you in DM. Also, have you considered offering an API for payment processing like Escrow does? Where I could integrate DAN BIN button on my own site at the 5% commission fee?

    Just my experience.

    Same opinion for me @Alexej K , except that dan makes the transfer and the worldwide payment with escrow easier.

    Sold 2nd yesterday.
    Both were in MakeOffer mode.

    p.s. From my own experience with BIN domains - sales are (very) rare, regardless of venue.
    Very likely only Afternic/GoDaddy works for BINs.

    true. it is cause it is hard to set the right bin.
    this is why many bin sales leave money on table vs make offer

    my only regret with all my makeoffer cause i never use bin.. is not to be on expnded afternic network... but.. with 1000 domains, its all also very hard to manage. either way, i like my makeoffer.

    even if seting bin solves all unpaid buyer issues on many or most or all markets.. including dan. cause they gotta pay right away.

    Negotiations are the key definitely, no dialogue = no sale.

    When EUR sales will be correctly counted on Dashboard and in Revenue report?
    Very old issue and still not fixed.
    For example, if USD is default currency: 585 EUR sale is shown as 585 USD sale, no any autoconversion like Sedo does.

    DAN is an excellent platform and service however I am fairly certain almost all traffic DAN.com gets comes via domain landing pages. Traffic going direct to DAN in all likelihood is insignificant so if you do not use them for landing pages or send hits there via links to lease or buy, your sales would be rare, imo.

    That is also true with Epik, Efty and several others. So if your domains get little if any direct navigation traffic your chance of a sale at those venues would be extremely low regardless of how good the platform is.

    @alcy,

    The portfolio issue was resolved indeed. In addition, the EUR prices you are referring to is merely a symbol on the For Sale page which no buyer ever made a remark about. Since the placement of this symbol, no mention of confusion ever was made by one of the buyers on our platform.

    Best regards,

    Good morning @carob & @tonyk2000,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    The pages exist to give transparency to interested parties. Without it, we still get quite some inquiries asking if the domain is available. Through this page, we tackle this problem and ensure the client is fully up to date without having to contact our support. The deleted pages themselves de-index over time. However, I will relay your message to our product team as feedback.

    Have a great week.

    thanks, u forgot to address the most iportant part about adding option to sort folio by name. every sort option now is useless compared to name sort. plz help do it.

    also, what do you mean EUR symbol only on sales page? i was talkin about folio page.. not salepage.. and i was talking about sorting by price.. to do it in usd... my clients have no interest in EUR. ty.

    Does anyone else have this issue where Dan tells you that you have unread messages but in reality you don't have any?

    Good morning Alcy,

    The filters for our search are being updated and improved shortly. Concerning your request, do you refer to the ability to sort the portfolio in alphabetical order or something else? Besides, the EUR symbol on the portfolio page does not imply the price is sorted in EUR. It merely implies the value of that filter which would be a currency.

    However, it is good that you point this out as it is clear it confuses. I will relay this to our product team.

    Have a great day.
