    Hi,

    Scenario :
    Received an inbound offer (from India)
    Me : Offer rejected
    Me : Counter offer sent
    Buyer : offer accepted few hours later.

    No news about payment after 3 days.
    Fake buyer ?

    Thanks for your feedback,

    Happens all the time there unfortunately. You can ask them to cancel the transaction and relist after 48 hours.

    @LaszloSchenk, @DAN.COM?

    What do you do to deter these?

    Reminds me of when I bought the Afternic listing of 99C.com for 50$ last week and had to be refunded because the seller "couldn't give the auth code for confidential reasons".

    Oof.

    I hope there is a marketplace can set up a verification code input from buyer's phone when creating an account, or pay minimum deposit to go to next step to confirm the offering and that would be a little penalty fee if buyer neglected it.

    They claim they block repeat offenders. I like DAN but you have to deal with alot of low ballers and fake offers. I never accept an offer or counter. I make a buy it now with lowest I will accept and tell them it’s available if they are interested.

    Almost 85% of the world is under lockdown, and you expect lumpsome of sales? Many countries have broken systems. If someone has to do a large transaction they have to goto bank directly,. I dont know why you blame someone for some country's mistake, or show some country in bad light. Don't expect sales unless you convince them personally over phone, or email why they have to rip their purse open in an emergency to pay some random guy far abroad. He scratched your back, and you did the same. Guess, both of you are even on that. Don't expect sales like this, seriously.

    I have had numerous non payers on accepted offers or accepted counter offers. After a while you figure out how not to be put in that position JMO.

    same here. It's a waste of time to receive dozens of offers everyday, finding the right price for the right buyer by the end he accepts but never pay...
    that's why I put a BIN only and a minimum offer at BIN price.

    Have had the same last year, took almost 1,5 week until I received the funds. After 7 days I asked (in their web messenger) what was taking so long cause I already authorised the transfer of the domain with my registrar.

    So definitely contact them!!

    i think the crucial part of dan prevention of fake (although we shoudl just prolly call them nonpaying) buyers, is to ban them. which they say they already do.

    gd auctions has nonpaying buyers too. as does sedo. but its much less common there than on dan. i guess there are some reasons for that

    Besides time wasted, these fake offers ruin good mood (softly speaking). So I’ve completely disabled the makeOffer functionality at DAN.

    Now I only get happy emails from DAN:
    Buy Now -> Payment Received -> Select Transfer option. :xf.smile:
