Hello,

These days I sell more on sedo than afternic.
Before it was around 90% on afternic and 10% on sedo, but now it's maybe 70% on sedo and 30% afternic.

Any idea ?

I like Sedo but when I put a description on a domain it changes all the descriptions to the same description for all my domains. Anyone else have this problem ?

There is a checkbox below the description where it says that it will apply this description to all your domains. I am guessing you have checked this box by mistake.

I think I did do it by accident once but then unchecked it but it was still doing it. I will look into it more closely today, cheers.

I doubt anyone here will have the experience you have that sedo does better than afternic even if namecheap redirected their whole site to sedo.

Domain sales have been slow, offers low, deadbeat offers too, so I'm glad you are seeing any movement.

Not really. Namecheap discounts Sedo Listed names so if I have listed names on Sedo and Afternic, Namecheap will show it as cheaper than other Afternic partners like godaddy, so for $500 names, people are buying from namecheap for the 5% discount i am sure.

Try searching for your names on namecheap vs godaddy and you will understand what I say.


Sedo usually sells me 5K names for me, so I am also happy lol

Isn't this the story of your domaining life, strange unexplainable events? Recently you reported that when you send traffic to a dan lander it got you 0 sales but when you first sent it to bodis you got 2 sales.

I hope you play the powerball this weekend if you can, you might be the first person to somehow win it twice (y)

Mostly .com domains or a variety of extensions?

Thanks

That's interesting to know even though you aren't using Sedo landers.

I'm using Afternic landers and make rarely a sale through Sedo compared to Afternic. Currently having 7,800+ domains listed at both platforms with BIN pricing.

By the end I think, these 2 first sales were made before changind dns to afternic, as after, i saw that when i put price requests on my domains first 10 price requested were made from the part that staid on dan, not on bodis landers.

I dont play powerbal, look to this screenshot of my last sedo sales, you'll see these days, something changed : https://prnt.sc/bTYwnwG83lMV
near to all last sales were with sedo/namecheap

Mostly .com domains or a variety of extensions?

Thanks

As I said, normally, it's around 1 sale on sedo for 10 sales on afternic. (my landers are on dan)

I can confirm increased sales @ Sedo. I do not list much on this platform, so my data alone would not be statistically significant, but, in light of this thread - YES, something positive happens @ Sedo.

Why is this?

In no particular order /pure speculation actually/:

a) changed conditions for external partners /vs. Afternic/, what if it is now more profitable to sell Sedo domains?

b) experiments @ GoDaddy - what if they display less Afternic domains for example...

c) moon phases OR solar eclipses (like the one of 10/25)
