    Hi @Ategy.com -

    I agree - it's a stretch. (a few too many cups of coffee this morning)

    My thought process was reflecting on the following dynamic - What percentage of individuals who go into a Pawn Shop and say "yes, I'd like a loan on my collectible item" ever return to reclaim the item?

    Sadly, I am betting it's lower than we would anticipate - probably closer to only 50% that ever return reclaim their merchandise versus the hopeful 90% that originally thought they would, but never had the cash to do so when the loan was due.

    I do agree - it is a stretch - but I do wonder what the Reclaim Rate would be with such a model?

    Thanks for your comment. I don't disagree with your point that it's a bit "out there" as an idea, but thought I'd toss it out there to gauge reaction to the concept as a discussion point. :xf.smile:

    I would much rather take the time to auction a bunch of names if unable to make a full portfolio sale, pawn companies in domain names have been around before nothing new there. Lend.me which now not propagating, DigiPawn now a parked page, Lendvo.com.

    As someone mentioned people are paying more than what people think domains are worth at auction, why sell to a cherry picker? It's not the same as selling your full portfolio.

    Pawn shop facts

    Eighty-five percent of pawn shop customers eventually reclaim the item they pawned, according to the National Pawnbrokers Association. Compare that to payday loans, where one-third of borrowers default within six months of taking out their first loan, according to a study by the Center for Responsible Lending.

    The next batch he cherry picked the names he liked and lowballed me for the lot. :xf.frown:

    Then i sent him a message in the same email where he bought my first names from sent a new list he selected what he wanted. I told him just on the one name alone i wouldnt accept it on the price of the lot

    1- How many names did you submit in each batch?
    2- Were you relatively happy with the prices on the first batch?
    3- Were the domains in your first batch of better quality than the other batches? (Are you willing to share the names?)
    4- You said "He" .. Was Frank buying your names for his own portfolio personally? Or could it have been for other buyers?

    Not directing this comment at any member but....

    Can you just imagine all the junk Frank and Uni is getting.
    It would be horrendous with all the amateur domainers sending their lists.

    That said, unless they are thinking about retirement (or maybe testing uni) I cannot see an established domainer seriously submitting their portfolio.

    And lets face it.... they are looking for really good portfolios from established domainers, they are not looking for most of the junk they are getting.

    Second batch contained more names and better names

    Stop wasting your time on this. Move on.
    For sure it is Cherry Pick Liquidation sale.
     
  12. This is not a waste of time at all if some domainers here are actually selling some of their domains to Uni/Frank.
    Nobody is twisting anybody's arm to take the money offered to them for their domain names.

    What I will say, I'm very disturbed with giving authcodes out first Uni completes the transfer. I ask for paypal payout and they dont send mass pay or friends and family. I had to eat the fees. I contacted heidi that handles the transfers I sent her 4 emails asking if I can refund and can they resend the payment another way. No response for 2 days.:unsure: I'm pissed had I known I had to pay the fees at the prices he offered i wouldn't have accepted the deal.
     
  15. Sorry to hear that fee soured your deal a bit.

    What was the percentage taken out for the fees?

    6%

    I know its not a lot but when your accepting wholesale prices on your names and think your getting a certain number you should get that number

    If i was the buyer and i got the names first theres no way i wouldnt send mass pay or friends and family

  17. Thank you for sharing.

    It is all relative. That 6% could be a deal breaker for someone especially if you might be selling at your lowest price point. It is very nice to know all charges going into all transactions.

    Bottom line, from the start I was never excited about Frank's proposal. It just seemed like a marketing ploy to get a look at potential buyers and sellers list, with no obligation to either. I'm still hoping to be proven wrong, but not looking good so far.

    Yes but in the end it still benefited some people who sold their domains.
    He made a genius move to acquire a lot of quality domain names for xxx$.
    He didn't have to wait after GD expired auctions or namejet or dropcatch or wtv lol.
    It's a brilliant move by him and his group of investors.
