    I mean, in terms of number of sales, and volume (not in terms of commission).

    Switching is a big deal, so I first ask.

    Yes, without a doubt.

    Transfers and payments at Dan are quite simply the smoothest I've come across from any marketplace ever.

    Peach vs Nectarine
    Sedo has a marketplace, Dan is basically just landing pages/transactions

    Yes, in many ways. Only one way Sedo is better - convert a lead offer into an Auction. Apart from that, Dan is much better.

    Ok you all say Dan is better on the average. So is this like, I was selling 1 domains at Sedo a month, but after swithcing to Dan I sell 3 names: is this what you mean?

    A buyer lands at Sedo and decides to negotiate and buy.
    Same thing happens at Dan.

    What makes Dan work better in this case?

    A few things that come to mind:

    -Sedo shows seller's location, and each buyer hates some locations in the world, and
    decides not to buy, or not pay much depending on seller location.

    -Sedo doesn't give any useful info about buyer, so we don't know if we are negotiating with a flipper,
    or a real enduser.

    I feel I almost never sell to actual endusers at Sedo recently. Also half of buyers don't pay.

    There is not much big difference between new Sedo landing page and Dan landing page.
    Sedo should be as good as Dan now, if discrimination and IP/flipper issues are not important.
    Maybe the only problem is that their mobile version is bad and noone is aware of it.
    .......
    Sedo transfers are easy and smooth. Gettng bids, and in case of "sale" , making buyers pay, are difficult at Sedo. There may be traitors inside Sedo working for other marketplaces. I would take such a possibility seriously if I were them.

    I've dealt with customers who explicitly asked to process the sale using Sedo. At the same time, I've seen no requests to proceed through undeveloped / dan. Affected domains were not initially offered on either platform. It means that Sedo, possibly being a very old player, does have a loyal enduser customer base.

    Loyal enduser customer base? Highly doubtful.

    imo, there's really no comparison overall how much better DAN is with DAN light years ahead of sedo.

    For BIN domains I recommend Sedo, these domains also participate in their MLS...
    MakeOffer domains you may sell where you like... even via blank page with your email address.
