    Please don't lose hope! :D
    The problem here is that the current way of how promos are being directed for .IO depends on how many domains under management each registrar has. We're working hard to be able to alter that rule to something more flexible and be able to provide with the price that you need.
    I'm really thankful that you're insisting on moving your names to us, and that's why you're looking for that discount.
    I've actually emailed the registry one more time last night, and waiting for some response today.
    Thanks for your patience, my friend!

    Hi there,
    For transferring in bulk, that discount means A LOT.
    We were actually incentivized to do it because we had multiple requests for a few hundred domain names each.
    Those transfer-in promos means direct lose to us, because the registry has no incentive in running transfers between registrars. During this hour, if we get 4k-6k domain names in transfers, that means we've directly lost $2,000 to $3,000.
    BUT, it's the bigger picture that we look after, here in NamePros. We think this community deserves these discounts, and all of them are being used to do more business. Smarter business. And, we absolutely believe in paying it forward.
    I'm not going to compare our pricing with other registrars, because you can do it by yourself, and you'll understand what our point is, when you look at the collection of register/renew/transfer operations, all combined: https://tld-list.com/tld/com
    God bless, and have a lovely week!

    ok
    just to be clear people here who talked about io including me, did not mean a promo temp price. but to reduce your regular price. from something that is now unusable because other registrars offer regular prices (not promos) of almost half or so of yours.

    perhaps if your approach is that u are waiting to have enough io names on your site to get that promo, which i think is what u said.. then the wait may be long indeed.. or infiite.
    but again, no one here was really talking about promos.
    dynadot and some others have regular io prices in the 25-30 range.

    as it stands, u do not rank so hot on the list:

    cheers :)

    Alcy,
    I can not actually discuss what the plan is, as we don't have signed contracts with the registry so far, and we have some sort of NDA that limits the amount of info that I can declare.
    But, I can assure you that we're working towards a solution. We're pushing for a permanent solution.
    Thanks,

    I am sure that we will continue to work to offer you the best prices. The problem is that some large registrars may get prices lower than we do. It all depends on the volume of the Registrar and unfortunately, it is not possible to get a lower price yet.

    Yes, you transferred 8 domains to NC for $6.76. But check renewal cost. $12.98 per each .com.
    We
    provide`s $7.49 (fee included) for each domain with renewal cost $8.49.

    You lost after time ~$5 per each domain.
