    Top domain.

    Will be very curious to see where the eventual DropCatch auction might push the price up to.

    Maybe SN/NJ will catch it :xf.wink: although I give DC a 85% chance of catching this one.

    Right now 261 people have it ordered on NJ

    261 people private auction at Snap names;

    Since 261 placed backorder on the name there

    Snapnames has best Auction system for drops
    Private over Public Auction, all day, everyday.

    Unlike DropCatch, if the #1 bidder fails to pay
    The #2 gets an option to buy (much better imo;
    DC kept re-auctioning; pissed me off; if no pay.

    what do they do, take the highest backorder and start that as the auction bid? or $69? or a huge list of people bidding at $69?

    Yes, unless they have some nonsense requirements such as a copy of ID. Instead I can send picture of money. I didn't place a backorder.

    Hope it blows up. I would love to see some shop names eg e/i/3d/360 names blow out.

    The problem is nowadays there's no need to explicitly state that your shop is electronic, online etc. Many people shop online as their first choice and for them it's simply a shop.

    The "E" at the beginning doesn't mean anything special.

    It's still extremely valuable, but I think its value peaked somewhere in 2012.

    Agreed, but still a great option for a Shopify competitor for example, one who is serious about the business.

    It is neither generic nor brandable. Every company which sells something has eshop or estore as subdomain (except amazon)*. Needs lots of advertising to become a competitive business. Also I wonder whether it can be stolen via udrp based on its past. Still I will take the risk and place my first 5 figure bid if I'm allowed to do so. *slightly exaggerating.

    Doesn't have to mean "electronic" - the below might not be as synonymous as electronic but still have meaning

    Earth
    Energy
    Electrical
    Environmental / eco

    etc etc

    Or if you wanted a specific Shopify store......

    Earphones
    Earplugs
    Earrings
    Engine

    etc etc

    Plenty of alternatives out there......but electronic is still is a powerful acronym and it is a 5 letter domain with "shop" in it and has multiple usages which is pretty rare.......

    Wondering who lets it drop actually ?

    The current bid is 31k ! Certainly many NP members have bid on it.

    shop names with any one letter prefix are very valuable.
