    People will not buy online till the lockdown in all countries ends. How will the products get delivered to buyer's homes. Offices and factories are closed worldwide.

    guess it depends where you live... but generally mail deliveries are working.

    and amazon going full speed and making huge profits in these lockdown times. as are amazon sellers... with countless new ones joining amazon to sell to seize business opportunity. or just as a new business venture for msny people who now lost their other biz and jobs and looking for new revenue sources. i would imagine its same increases on ebay new members and sales, but i only heard about the amazon case.

    My first thoughts were to panic manage cash flow but more and more here are convincing otherwise. Online might become bigger than ever.

    well it makes perfect sense doesnt it
    people are locked at homes, with stores closed.
    so all they can do is surf the net all day and buy online.
    hence amazon making killing and other similar places.
    this could also mean increase for domain sales...
    even if many endusers may have less money, many companies will also want to open up and seize opportunities online and need domains etc.

    however, if domain selling no longer seems good to anyone, then i guess other online ventures they can consider.. whether becoming amazon seller or ebay seller or what not.

    but definitely moving to online business would be key. at least for now. so expect big boom of online ventures. expect countless people worldwide as they go bankrupt with their restaurants, barbers, and many more, to consider shifting their careers and arriving at coinclusion that having an online business is the best way to go. because onlione biz can work both in crisis time like these... as wel as regular non crisis times.... big changes are coming to jobmarket worldwide.

    They used to say that there were two types of gun slingers in the Wild West...the Quick and the Dead. This philosophy can be applied to today's businesses.

    There will be those that quickly adapt to ever changing scenarios and then there will be those that have already quit and have given up, unable or unwilling to overcome the challenges presented to them.

    There will be many people now who towed the corporate line for many years and all that got in return was fired.

    There will be many hungry (to succeed), determined, creative people who now have no further option but to look outside of the corporate window and stand on the ledge of uncertainty.

    There will be those that just freeze, unable to make the leap of faith and there will be those that jump regardless shouting yippie-kai-ayyyy on the way down into the unknown.

    There will be opportunities for everybody and this includes domain investors, once they learn to adjust their ridiculous pricing strategies and go with the flow. Everything has changed and they need to change too.

    Will you be the last one at the party wandering aimlessly seeking buyers for names that many would have already dropped or will you be one who was the first to leave so that they could shed the baggage of the past and move forward as a lean mean domaining machine.

    There will be fewer people who will pay for a dictionary word with a random extension tagged on the end. They will have so many choices that only the best will survive.

    Will you be www. Kwikk.giraffe or

    www. Dough-Dough.Extinct

    I would just like to correct you @alcy. Amazon is not exactly "going full speed and making huge profits." I would know because I am an Amazon FBA seller. Amazon had temporarily stopped shipping out millions of different products via Prime. In an email to sellers, Amazon distinguishes "essential" verses "non-essential" categories. For example, Groceries, certain health and beauty products, and baby essentials continue to be shipped as normally. Non essential goods like toys, electronics, clothing, sports equipment, are temporarily put on the back burner.

    Amazon's reasoning is to lessen the strain on their warehouse workers as well as the fact that legally they are required to comply with many state orders requiring a pause of non-essential business.

    To be clear, third party sellers like myself can still ship out those "non-essential" items out of our own warehouses. Additionally, sellers can go through a Amazon test period where they show themselves worthy of getting the coveted "PRIME" logo by 2 day fulfillment from their own warehouse. If you pass the test, then you can ship items from your home/warehouse for example and customers will still see the Prime logo on your products.

    thanks for sharing. this isn't the conclusions one could draw from the videos i watched, but i have no problem concluding your information is more solid and verified.

    anyway we look at it.. the general consensus remains that a company like amazon is the perfect ideal example of where we are headed in future and whast types of companies will make it.. make it big.. and survive such crisis as we face now.. which will more than likely bankrupt and annihialate the most average small businesses.

    i think for us domainers being already familiar with internert based biz ventures, we have an advantage here for the future.. and for the moment.. but for most people who suddenly are stuck at home with no more businesss to run, this is an opportunity to change career orientations.

    in short.. the future is online. for all things. including jobs.

    All mail order is shut down where I live. I cannot buy an extremely urgent computer monitor until lockdown has been removed. No commercial deliveries allowed. I have to drag my TV monitor from the lounge into the office, and back again when I'm finished. It's a REAL PITA. I get neck pain from looking at the huge screen. It's the only thing keeping me online.

    Sorry, sounds like blanket statements.

    More people indoors, more desire be independent own boss.

    Cant do without a domain, goes both ways

    Ignite people's entrepreneur spirit

    @stub no idea where you are - but if you are driving distance to northern Massachusetts, I would be happy to loan you one - actually you could keep it.

    sob story: on
    Thanks for the offer. Appreciated :) The biggest problem is I cannot drive even 1 kilometer in the direction of the airport 140 kilometers away. There are no planes, anyway. I cannot even drive in the same direction to my nearest barangay which I used to consider my home barangay. Everything in the other direction mostly closed. One supermarket is open, 10k away (my nearest small town). Well most of it is closed. Only the food/groceries section is open. Only 5 people are allowed in the supermarket at one time. I cannot even buy my favorite bread, because it's in the wrong direction, where I cannot go. Have to make do with unhealthy local bread :(
    sob story: off

    I'm pretty certain the infected/died stats are entirely fabricated, knowing the attitudes of the local friendly population.
