    Hello!
    I listed my domains on 5 marketplaces! I list on GoDaddy with fixed price and on other marketplaces with Make Offer only!
    For example if GoDaddy integrated Afternic listings into the GoDaddy domain manager, is it possible to list domains on Afternic with buy it now price also? The same question about Sedo! Or it is better to list with fixed price on one marketplace to avoid problems?
    Thanks!

    These problems are rare but can be a big problem if it happens to you. So if you list in multiple places, they should be at fixed prices at only one of your venues. If I had to choose which one should be fixed. I'd fix at Afternic. Why? Because it's one of the biggest venues, and you domain would also be available on GoDaddy (it's automatic.You don't need to list on GoDaddy separately), another of the biggest venues. Between them. They have a huge chunk of the market.

    Thank you for your reply! Is there a big difference between Afternic listings and GoDaddy premium listings? I use GoDaddy premium listings!

    I don't know. But I doubt it. Why not try listing 1 domain on Afternic, watch it cycle thru to GoDaddy, and compare for yourself. You could always try another one at GoDaddy and wait to see if it appears on Afternic.

    I was thinking about it! Thanks! I was looking just now at namebio.com sold domains on GoDaddy and on Afternic! It shows only few sales on Afternic this month! But I thing Namebio did't show all sales because I watch sold domains forum here on Namepros and people pretty often add screenshots with Afternic sales!

    I have my fixed prices on all aftermarkets
    they are maybe not the same

    in case 2 different persons buy at the same time
    then it maybe a problem,
    but I doubt it

    in case its the same person
    I see no problem

    just tell some market places
    it sold already

    in last few years Afternic do not report sales on NameBio, while all GoDaddy auction sales >$100 are automatically listed, so you cannot use NameBio, as valuable as it is for many purposes, to compare venues re number of sales.

    "Buy now" is risky even at just one marketplace. Domain can go to redemption, between recovery and pending delete, and then you have to pay 3 figures to recover the domain. After you recover the domain, the buyer may not pay. and you may never know that actually that fake buyer was your registrar.

    Your risks partly depend on whether there is a time gap between accepting buy now price and actually paying, and whether the domain is physically lost immediately after payment. If the domain sells at two places almost simultaneously, you can pay the penalty using part of the profit.

    You can play a risky game like this: list it with different prices, like 1K, 5K, 10K, at different places. Tell potential buyers that the domain is for sale at these marketplaces, and send them their links. Then the buyer would choose the cheapest one... But then other marketplaces may learn that the domain is being sold, and "buy" them at their marketplaces, just to make you pay the penalty, which can be more than your profit (and maybe your sale was fake as well, and they would have to pay the whole amount, but they may not, because they know you won't take legal action)

    Surely this is the risk of still listing domains without fully tegistered status, rather than a risk in BIN pricing. I personally delete listings once paid registration ceases. I know some continue to list domains until deletion, but I think that is unwise for reasons you state.

    I think both sedo and afternic have penalty in case of not keeping promises. It may be a financial penalty, or maybe more. But cheaters continue cheating and not pay the penalty either.

    @SamirAz86 If your domain names are fast-transfer eligible I was never clear on whether it was problem listing them eg fast transfer at both Sedo and Afternic (this of course only possible if registered at places like NameSilo, Epik, Name/com, Dynadot etc that are part of both). In another thread @Rob Monster replied that the way the query works in those cases should not conflict -- reply here.

    I noticed that "big" suppliers (hugedomains, buydomains - just to name a few) list their BIN domains both on Sedo and Afternic at the same time, together with serving landing page "own traffic" through their own websites / CC-PayPal merchant accounts. So they must have elected to accept the risk of a duplicate sale, or maybe programmed everything (add listing / delete listing) with appropriate APIs including notifications of a pending sale, funds verification etc. - something that is not instantly provided (at least by afternic) to regular customers. I can hardly imagine Afternic or Sedo closing these big accounts due to undelivered sold domains though...

    Hi, Bob!
    My domains all registered at GoDaddy and listed on Afternic through GoDaddy with fixed price and eligible for fast transfer. I listed them with DAN landers and also with buy it now. Can I list these domains on Sedo with buy it now? My domains are not very quality names so I don't expect many offers in a short time. Also it is very difficult to sell names with best offers. Buy it now should work better!

    Techincally, you can. Practically, by adding afternic-enabled domains to Sedo you will gain little or nothing extra, as most (if not all) Sedo distributions partners are also part of the Afternic network.

    In any case, you should better not list with BIN at >1 places. This is to avoid potential duplicate sales. Or, in your scheme: The buyer may add the domain to a shopping cart somewhere (Afternic distribution network), Afternic will then lock your domain with GoDaddy pending sale, the buyer may then visit the domain page (DAN-powered), he may decide to purchase via DAN, but you will be (temporary) unable to deliver the domain, as it would be locked on GoDaddy pending afternic sale to exactly the same buyer.
