    Sometimes you can predict the future based on the past. What’s going to happen won’t depend on what we discuss here.

    I think the concept is interesting and worth the read. I could dream and think they would pay me $500/domain, but in reality I know it’s not even worth sending them my portfolio. If it brings some type of competition, for other firms to build some type of reserve and portfolio bidding system, then that’s a nice positive for domain owners.

    In light of this newest updated post from Frank...

    I find this comment from @End Game extremely intriguing.

    "If it brings some type of competition, for other firms to build some type of reserve and portfolio bidding system, then that’s a nice positive for domain owners"

    Anything is possible.

    Based on the names submitted in the "domains wanted" section on namepros...I think frank is in for some 'pigeon sh*t'. It will be like sifting through a dropped domains list, where you wonder who drugged someone to register these names.

    As far as whether it's a good idea....I think it's too early to jump to conclusions.
    You can't make judgments without evidence. We have to hear from people who legitimately submitted decent to good names and see what they were offered. Measure it to see if it work out worst or better if someone were to post those names here on namepros or somewhere else.

    With announcements like this, you really don't have to debate...time will tell the tale..and make all things clear. One day this industry will have a disruption. I mean some innovation that will be good, but different from what we have seen before. Yellow taxis won't always run the show.

    OK, this just got confirmed:

    Frank will pay a Shilling or two per domain name in the portfolio. That translates to roughly $5 to $10 [er name )

    As much as I want to "like" and laugh at your Frank "Schilling" joke .. I just can't because there are too many people here who don't get the difference between fact, opinion and sarcasm! lol

    You've opened a can of potentially liquid worms here ...


    ADDED ... It's a JOKE people ... Frank SCHILLING !!!

    All this in the time it took me to write the above .. lol

    Being an intermediary between portfolio buyers and portfolio sellers seems to be an interesting idea.

    However, the first question. Is the following scenario possible:

    1. Purchase portfolio if you see at least 5% good domains (and 95% trash). It is obvious enough that the portfolio should be purchased in full, and without telling the seller what domains (5%+) are good as per internal valuation

    2. Transfer the best domains to Frank

    3. Offer the remaining 95%, mixed with others, to "I am a buyer" buyers who were asked to show up

    Yeah, doubt it will work like that.

    It would kill the whole idea right away.

    There is no need for him to do that.

    Basically, he'd treat the whole portfolio as, let's say, one valuable name (an equivalent of LLL.com or LL.com even). For such name, he wouldn't be asking 20% commission. He'd be happy with 5% to 10% if it doesn't involve much extra work.

    What he can do is to have a first look and if the portfolio is really good, try and negotiate for himself. If it is something that is fine, but he personally is not interested, he could offer to subscribed buyers (maybe, he'll keep it completely clean and commit that he won't be buying/competing/skimming).

    If this is the case, it could become a good tool. For those exiting, heirs, estates, having different investment opportunity, cutting losses etc.

    Yes, it is the key... And, no information from Uni so far.

    As a side note, Frank is now also bombarded with "portfolios" of 2-5 domains. He should probably limit the size to at least 500 domains min. Or, the whole scheme will die and soon.

    I think this is very good. You lose nothing by sending your names to them and if you receive an offer, you can then evaluate if it is acceptable to you. I believe many people are ready to sell their domains if they receive an acceptable offer.

    Just submitted 5 names. Nothing to lose. No harm in trying. Let's see how it goes.

    I just got a response from them regarding a domain I submitted.

    How much would you value TitaniumGlass in king for a reseller price + enduser. I want to compare with the price they offered me.

    Im not much aware on this niche domain, but I checked in godaddy domain appraisal valued at 3628$ and estibot values it at 340$. Looks like a good traffic domain name.

    I think a reseller price of 100$-250$ as something good. But again Im not much aware of this niche.

    End user price should be 1500$+.
