    Strangely enough. I get a regular flow of inquiries from my Voodoo Parking Pages (which I'll probably be dropping from next month... my min $100 rule). Mostly, not all, from India. Maybe between 10-20/month. But zero from Parking Crew. Haven't sold anything yet from any of those inquiries.

    Oh. I think a full page lander is going to be way more direct than a parking page for sale banner. It should be much more professional and beneficial. Maybe something like Dub.io would be a good solution for you. But it will require some work on your part, unlike regular parking.

    hmmm... I am having hard time convincing myself that when someone truly wants your domain, they'd be concerned whether its a sale banner or a full page lander they are inquiring thourgh. provided of course the sale banner is a clear one.. like say orange horizontal banner on PC.. which is what I use.. with some capital letters there.. "THIS DOMAIN IS FOR SALE... "

    and the reason I am having hard time convicing myself, is simply by putting myslef in buyer shoes.. and how I'd not care about the contact method either

    of course, if sale banner is hard to notice.. whihc I find to be case on voodoo.. more than PC.. due to all the multiple colors there etc.. or possibly the worst banners ever on something like Fabulous.. then thats a different story.

    in all honesty the highest ever conversions to sales I got was by redirecting all trafick to goddady auction for sale lander right away... plus there you get an added increased odds of completing sales (no one wants to lose their gd accounts and be banned).. but.. the drawbacks are a few too.. 20% fee... hard to make offer for newbies.. they need to get gd auctions account first.. pay $5 per year.. and the UI is not friendly for newbies.

    still, gd was the best conversion for me.. maybe I should go back!

    That is why it's better to have a landing page to a parking page. You can get exactly what you want instead of the parking company deciding how attractive the button should be vis-a-vis their paying links :)

    Putting myself in your shoes :) I'd much prefer to have a professional looking landing page than a scruffy parking page (which most of them are). It shows that you actually care about selling the domain.

    The reason why GoDaddy was your highest conversions ever, was more because everybody knows and thinks GoDaddy is reliable and won't try to cheat them. I call it "the Superbowl effect". It doesn't matter to them that GoDaddy makes them jump thru a few hoops to completion. The solution to the 20% commission is by adding 25% to your non-commission pricing :) I'd even blame GoDaddy for the high price stating GoDaddy's admin and pricing policies make it necessary. Also it's very much easier if the domain is at GoDaddy where they most probably already have an account. Lots of great advantages for the buyer. No effing about doing transfers. Or you could do the transfer to your account after they have paid. The 1 extra day won't even be noticed in the scheme of things.

    With your own parking page. You could have both buy now pages which went directly to escrow.com or make offer pages, so you can have a discussion. I have seen both options on the same landing page. But probably I wouldn't recommend them on the same page because it shows uncertainty about your price. So you will never get any Buy Now Sales. And you've set a ceiling for your domain upfront.

    Believe it or not, it was an “esports” domain. Esports and online gaming are so, so, so big

    Same here. Since November I've been getting high XX to low XXX on one domain and I cant figure out why. Just going to enjoy it and hope it lasts.

    good for you
    it happens but I think its very rare.
    you just got lucky I guess.

    chargebacks can happen much later than finalizations btw.. in fact they're called chargebacks because they even occur after you get paid out by parking company.. monthly or what not.. let's hope its good revenue yuo get to keep. yuo can email bodis support and they can confirm more than anyone here. gl

    p.s. if not done already.. try to google keywords etc.. maybe you'll find something out.. something precise. more than just esports related. gl

    Well i can cash out now, i’ve never had a chargeback happen AFTER payments were finalized. Dont really see how it would work if they finalize that and I withdrawl. At that point, there is no money left for them to change their mind with

    well.. you never really had similar big revenue jumps either you said :)

    as for chargebacks.. that's exacrly how they work.. you get them after you get paid out.. else they'd not be called chargebacks..

    you do not withdraw from parking companies.. parkign companies withdraw for you.. so if there is chargeback, they take back on the amount they gave you.

    I only ever had one chargebacks.. for like couple cents... on voodoo.. I have no idea why .. but I don't care its like few cents.. here is pic to give you idea how it works.. gl

    I’ve never had $90 in a day from ONE domain, but i’ve had similar spikes, and on those I’ve only ever had a chargeback DURING payment finalization, but just like you it was only a couple cents, never after though. My $90 day is finalized so i’m not too worried, To my knowledge chargebacks only occur if they detect fradulent clicks so i’ll be fine. I mean, theoretically Anyone could just withdraw payment when able to, and than say F*ck the chargeback fee and never use it again lol Why would they make it so thats possible haha

    Although, I am a bit suspicious as to why they are booming.... 2 crypto domains and 1 esports domain, all getting clicks daily with over $7 CPM? I usually get visits a lot, but this is a suspicious amount of clicks

    I am worried about the chargebacks too. But having the domain name at bodis I can see the google analytics traffic and the visitors that are going to the domain name. For my name it looks clean, no bots or anything - so I am pretty confident I wont get hit with a chargeback. But who knows, Google does what it wants to do and there is very little recourse when they make decisions.

    lots of threads here about parking not dead. and yes for some names with great traffic it lives. In a much smaller state than it did even 5 years or 10 years ago. In most cases a few hundred domains with about 10,000 visits per month will give you less than $5 per month. We spent about a year testing each parking site and advertising offer and found that at the end of the day a page with some content and adsesne or selling your own ads does best. Alot of people here will disagree with me and claim long live the parking.
    • If you have never parked any names before you should test parking (try voodoo or parking crew)
    • If you are making less than $10 per month on all your names I would say its better to have a landing page and domain store that pushed to sell the name.

    so it means, u simply buy a domain and list it on some sites like sedo, and traffic will come to your domain automatically.

    As we all know that the more eyeballs we got on our product, the more chances, its gonna sell, so do u think, that listing a domain is enough for getting traffic on it, we dont need to do anything else.

    But what if we are targetting a special country suppose canada, and we have a domain like ABC.ca , so how can i target only canada people or business owners, so that i get more chances of selling it, rather than showing my domain to all other countries people, bcse at the end, ABC.ca is used only for canada, so its to show canada people, rather than rest of the countries.

    Do u think, listing domain ABC.ca is enough, for getting canada visitors on the domain.

    Plz share ur experience, as i am very eagerly waiting fo r ur answers here.
    Plz reply,

    Thanks
