It’s been more than four years since @lionel_efty and I set out on a mission to change the way domain name investors manage, market and monetize their portfolio’s. And what a ride it has been!

After a private beta with a small group of users, we decided to turn to NamePros.com in December 2014 to announce our public beta and with an open invite for anyone to sign-up and provide feedback. And feedback we got. A lot. In fact, the feedback has never stopped and it is safe to say that it is thanks to the community here that Efty transformed from our humble vision of a domain portfolio management tool into the full-fledged sales platform it is today and that we’re continuing to build for you.

Pretty much all of the new features we shipped over the past few years were build on top of the original framework that we developed for Efty back in 2014 which resulted in a somewhat bloated application that isn’t always as fast and bug-free as we like it to be and frankly, has started to look a bit tired.

That’s why we set out to completely revamp the application, streamline the menus, simplify navigation and build a responsive layout for all devices and operating systems. The result is a platform with a strong emphasis on helping you make more money, by driving more sales and better reporting.

We think it’s turning out awesome but we need some unsalted feedback before we flip the switch and roll it out to our entire userbase.

And what better place to turn for feedback than here on NamePros? The very same place we announced the first version of our platform :)

The new Efty is not just old wine in new bottles. We already incorporated a lot of feedback and delivered on a lot of the popular request posted by members in the many Efty threads on the forum.

With the new Efty, you can:
  • Create custom categories for your marketplace (yay!)
  • Rearrange the order of premium domains on your homepage
  • Remove the Make Offer form from the marketplace (for your BIN domains)
  • Get in-app notifications for new inquiries and transactions.
  • Turn on/of logos in your marketplace or For-Sale landing pages.
  • Show listings on your marketplace in chronological or alphabetical order.
  • Activate two-factor authentication for added security
  • Quickly see which of your domain names are under review.
  • Add a Privacy Policy page and place Active Consent checkboxes on your Make Offer forms.
To help us test drive the #NewEfty you sign into your Efty account via https://app.efty.com/login/
Not an Efty user yet? Feel free to sign up for a 30 day, free trial here.

And please, do let us know what you think in the comments. Did we miss something? Spotted a bug? Love it, hate it? All feedback, comments, questions, and suggestions are very much appreciated.

This is a paid post.

Look very professional and I like the responsive design, as many of us are using mobile devices outside the office.

Doron and Lionel,

Thank you!

For me these first (3) changes you have added to EFTY are HUGE!
We have talked about these options a year ago and man, those are really a big deal. I know it took a lot of hard work to implement these options and the others you listed which are a big bonus as well.

Thanks for listening to us and really improving a bad ass platform already.

With all these new upgrades, you are forcing me to keep my 2 EFTY sites active for a much longer time rather than trying to make my own site!

Really nice job. Cannot say enough about you and your platform.

A Happy EFTY customer,
Vito

P.S. maybe on your lunchbreak you can still throw that blogging/article section in there too. :)

Let me jump in here real quick :) The recent transactions panel shows the five newest transactions, regardless their status. The transactions you're seeing here should be equal to the top five transactions you can find viewing the transactions overview.

Please let us know if this makes sense for you, thanks!

Hi @Doron Vermaat , is there a way to use @Domain.com eMails while using Efty nameservers?

Example: My domain listed with Efty is Blilswaguryt.com. Can I use [email protected]aguryt.com still as my contacct address?

Or, can you just 301 redirect to Efty landers while keeping your nameservers with your current host.

Thanks.

Hats off to both Doron and Lionel for creating such an amazing platform, congrats guys.

I may have asked this before, so apologies in advance if I have. In regards to the marketplace, is it possible to change the displayed price formats i.e. instead of $10K as an example, it would view as $9,995 or instead of $7.4K, it would view as $7,395 etc etc?

Thanks.

Thanks for the kind words, greatly appreciated!

Reformatting the prices on your Efty marketplace has been requested quite a few times. We just pushed this feature from our staging server into production. A quick outline:

efty.PNG


You'll find a new checkbox 'Shorten prices' in your marketplace settings. The default value is checked, unchecking this will result in prices being displayed on your marketplace as shown in the screencap below:

Please note that these changes have been implemented on the new SSL encrypted Marketplace platform.

Hope this meets your requirements!

Can you email some examples to us at [email protected] so that we can have a look? .App domains are still a bit a pain to handle from a parking perspective because of their SSL requirements but you should be able to list them on your marketplace without any issue.

It depends on the email host. Most email hosts just need access to MX records but if they need access to name servers too then the best solution is to redirect the domain to https://eftymarket.com/BadMonkey.com/ or https://namerockstar.com/domain/BadMonkey.com/ (for example).

I'm really liking the new Efty thus far. (y)

I would really like it if Efty could add a secondary category option as sometimes domains fit under multiple categories.

Unfortunately I no longer have an active Efty account and trial has expired so I cannot test it.

My two biggest issues continue to be....

1. You need the top tier to use a custom favicon
2. You cannot customize logo sizes.

Both of these items are such a big part of my landers. When someone bookmarks anyone of my 1000 domains they get a MapleDots favicon and that helps them recognize my pages. Nobody know what the efty favicon is and it's utterly ridiculous that the user has to put up with it at ANY level. Keep the footer tag but the favicon has to go on all but the trial level. No way I would pay for a marketplace advertising someone else's site.

Additionally the logos are a major investment for some domainers, we pay a lot of money for them and to scrunch them into a tiny box minimizes their impact. I don't know how many times I sold a domain because it came with a good logo. Clients love it and it continues to be an important issue to some of us.

You can visit www.MapleDots.com to see how I use logos.
I made the page look like an efty page just to show how good logos could look in an efty marketplace.

If possible please add one more column "COMMENT or NOTE", where we can write personal notes about particular domain, like why we have bought that domain,what is our plan with that domain (like outbound or inbound) to renew or drop or resale whatever.

Hi @Doron Vermaat, I will like so suggest you apply other options for users in two factor authentication by not limiting it to Google Authenticator only. It will be great if Authy (Authy.com) is also integrated into Efty, it does have some advantages over GA. You could also include a SMS verification code sent to paid subscribers' phone whenever they want to login as another form of 2FA.

I personally prefer the these two to GA simply because of the difficulties in encountered when switching from one phone to another.

This seems to be quite a popular request so it's certainly on our radar.

I made the page look like an efty page just to show how good logos could look in an efty marketplace.

The current logo restrictions for logo size are needed to make sure everything works properly across the entire platform and all different marketplace and landing page themes. We do understand the wish for larger size logos so It's something we will be looking into. Your feedback on the Efty platform has always been very extensive and that is much appreciated ✌️ .

If possible please add one more column "COMMENT or NOTE", where we can write personal notes about particular domain, like why we have bought that domain,what is our plan with that domain (like outbound or inbound) to renew or drop or resale whatever.

The current version of Efty has this functionality but we found it was hardly being used, hence it isn't included in the #newefty If a lot of people feel we should bring this back in the new application we can definitely look into this.

If this was the intention from the start, then it's ok. Thanks.

We are aware that the current integration with Escrow.com and Payoneer Escrow sometimes creates deadbeat or false transactions. A deeper integration with these two payment platforms will be the first thing we start working on after the new platform is live for all users.

Thanks for the recommendations. I will make sure we have a look at these but the priority to implement more than one 2FA provider will most likely be low for now.
