    Because there are none.

    It seems you are looking for some witch, and thinking you might find one behind this rock or that rock. Well, long-time NamePros members will probably tell you that when it comes to Epik, you are wasting your time.

    Welcome to the domain industry -- it seems you might be new.

    I registered over 200 domains back in 1996 with network solutions for $75 each per year. Where was Epik in 1996?

    Congratulations for being prescient. If you were able to hold those 1996 domains, there are some folks here who know you already! As for Epik, we were founded in 2009 and became a registrar in 2011. In August 2018, I made Epik my full-time focus and we have seen steep growth across multiple lines of business.

    You say you’re taking your business elsewhere, but never saw u were interested...most CEO, never gave half this transparency, or even time! It’s admirable.
    Some ppl worth supporting, yet u keep coming after..

    i wont be calling anyone... already won my business.

    I completed 3 domain escrow transactions through Epik 3 days ago. I was the buyer. The domains were not even registered at Epik. I just asked Epik to add the transfer costs ($7.49 each) to the purchase price. The transaction was swift and completely FREE for both me and the seller.

    I am not aware of any other service that can even be compared to this. It's a thing of beauty in my eyes (y)

    1996? Where was AOL in 1996? Yahoo?

    Those who content with their past accomplishments, will become the next Network Solutions...

    So you join the forum and immediately go to an Epik thread and start criticizing? People without an agenda generally don’t attack/troll out the gate and introduce themselves to the community.

    You charge 9% fee when domain was sold from Epik's parking page/marketplace, am I right?
    I don't understand why the escrow process is 'free' on the other hand (this is more personal work in this case while in case with parking it can be almost automatic).

    Does the Epik marketplace support listing domains that are not with Epik? If so, what's the commission?

    We will typically bring the domain through Epik registrar as part of transaction assurance. Depending on the jurisdictions, we many not enforce that but it is case by case.

    The rate depends on buyer's payment method.

    You can start a transaction here to get a quote:

    @Tony Blessed will get in touch.

    Rob, I was not asking about the escrow process. I am fine with bringing the domain into Epik after the buyer has clicked "Buy it now." My question is whether Epik allows listing domains on its marketplace if the domain is with another registrar.

    Yes, of course. Very much so.

    And you can also use our awesome SSL landers for free even for domains registered elsewhere.

    Good tutorial here:

    Escrow transaction minimum: $500
    Escrow fee ranges from 1.5% - 6.5% depending on the payment method.

    Marketplace transaction minimum: No minimum
    Marketplace commission: 9% of transaction amount

    We accept listing/selling Non-Epik registered names. Domain push is processed for the buyer through Epik escrow accounts at other registrar (majorly tier 1 registrars) during the sale of the domain.

    Feel free to ask any further questions.

    Hi,

    There will be a charge for deleting a domain (0.50 cents)

    Hi @Rob Monster ,

    Is this promotion still valid?

    Some buyers don't want to expose their true identity to sellers. Can buyers stay nameless on Epik escrow (i see we need only the emails of buyer and seller to initiate the escrow)?

    Does Epik issue masterbucks for escrow funds?

    Sure, we still do those deals for domains that are on Epik and where buyer funds via wire transfer.

    The proceeds are disbursed to fully redeemable Masterbucks.com. It works like a champ. Your Epik login works on both sites -- it is single sign-on across nearly all Epik propertiies.

    We can now also do large crypto transactions following recent acquisition of Amplify.io -- an Ireland domiciled crypto exchange.
