    I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I've been told by friends and family I tend to "over complicate" things, so I hope I'm not doing that here. I'm trying to figure out how to "sync" my prices for a domain on both Dan and AN. Let me use just a hypothetical domain price.

    On Dan, I have the domain priced at $800 lets say. That's the "Buy Now" price. Then, I go to Afternic, and I have three price points. The Buy Now, Floor and Minimum.

    I just want to get the $800. Do I jack the price up now on both Dan and AN, say to $1200 now, so I can accommodate AN's three price categories? Buy Now for $1200, Floor for $900 and Minimum for $800? Dan has the "Starting Offer" too, but I've just left that blank.

    Hope I am conveying this correctly.

    Only have a BIN at one location. All others should be make offer only. You do not want the headaches that would result in the event two people should buy the name at the same time from two different marketplaces. This has been discussed quite a lot here over the years...use the search function to find other threads that list the options of listing and the logic different people apply to this issue.

    Okay. I'll do BIN on only one site (that sure takes the headache out of it) and also look up more comments on this on the forum. Thanks.

    Set Buy Now = Floor = Minimum = $800

    So say, BIN= $1200, Floor= $900 and Minimum=$800

    Does that look about right?

    Yeah its a pain, trying to make sure prices are all set correctly. Sometimes I just want to put a lander up with my BIN price and be done with it, but then you wont get the exposure.

    You get more BIN sales on Afternic and you can't communicate direct with the buyer (on DAN you can) so set your BIN's on Afternic and make offer on DAN

    Also make sure to factor in the difference in commission on both platforms
