    Hi, Its a bit of a stupid question to some of you, but, I would like to know the answer.

    If you told somebody that if you find a buyer you'll give them a finder's fee.
    What % of the sale price would you normally give that person, if the name they provided to you bought the domain.

    If you didn't have an agreement, just be a good person and give them a good tip! :) 15% or more would be great.

    All of these marketplaces charge 20-30% and do nothing to get the buyer. Without the lead the sale would never have happened. 15% is probably a fair amount to give. $150 for a $1,000 sale is the least amount you should give.

    15% is too low imo for both 'finding' the buyer AND 'brokering' the domain
    Just consider the time that person will spend in search of the buyer and the energy to sell the domain to them.

    If it was me I'd split the work as in, either I'd ask someone to find a potential buyer and get a % if I managed to sell the domain or I'd find a potential buyer and give the negotiation to someone that has persuasion skills

    just my opinion ofc

    If the domain is good I would sell any domain anybody has for 15%.

    you mean that the domain will sell itself since it's good.. that saves you the time of finding a buyer hence the 15% being fair in this case :)

    Thats why Im asking , I have no idea whats good or bad in domain world. so 15-20% is a fair commission/finders fee.
    They dont do the brokering, Im just talking about if they find a buyer and introduce them to you.
    No brokering involved

    I can give plenty of tips lol, 3 races tomorrow in wolverhampton, ffos las, and plumpton. stick money on the fav in the 12.30 Plumpton
    if that doesnt win then double your bet for the favorite at ffos las at 12.45, and lastly if that doesnt win double your bet again for Wolverhampton first race favorite 2.10.
    It used to be the case that fav of the starting first race of every race meet would be around 33% chance of coming in a winner.
    so in 3 races a fav should come in.

    but thats no good to a person if they gave you the name of a potential buyer, So that's the reason I was asking.
    One more tip, dont bet on Irish racing.
    one more, dont bet at all. lol.

    I agree, 15% is a good tipping amount for most industries.

    standard tips are between 15-20%

    unless there was a flat fee or percentage originally offered to the person before - if there was you must honor the original deal.

    Hi

    some people do shiz-zit like that out of the kindness of their heart, cuz they believe in... "what goes around, comes around" karma.

    but it's not a normal situation and if it was, then the "finders fee" would have been stipulated.

    and, if that "somebody" didn't ask what percent they'd get, prior to. ..then you give whatever you feel like.

    but, if you were the one who found a buyer, what percent do you think you deserve?



    :)


    imo....

    Ok if you were following my tips on horse racing 10 points on first race. You would have lost. Opps.

    Results Name Racecard No. Jockey SP
    1st Templier (14) J E Moore 12/1
    2nd Jam Session (2F) (8) A P Heskin 6/1
    3rd Khezerabad (F) (1) D A Jacob 1/4

    2ND RACE
    You have to dbl your bet stake to $20

    Results Name Racecard No. Jockey SP
    1st Sporty Yankee (F) (5) A Tinkler 6/5
    2nd Boutan (6) Robert Williams 20/1

    Wahoooooo we have a winner.

    So 10 on first race, loss, 20 on second race, its a winner. so thats 10+20=30.......30 paid out, 44 back.Then you call quits, cos you gotta know when to fold em. you get 44 which is PLUS 14.

    Thank me. What the fook Im i doing domaining!!!.
