    The Recently Sold Domain list at SH shows Lotion.com sold for $2,499.
    Way too cheap right? What could be the reason, seller needed money due to pandemic effect? Seller doesn't actually know domain value? Possible a glitch (maybe meant to say $24,999 or even $249,999?O_o IMG_20200426_064424.jpg

    Auto correct
    Lotiion?
    Lootion?
    Lottion?

    I'm with you, I agree.

    Sometimes they get the logo and spelling wrong?
    Talking about Squadhelp, not you :xf.wink:

    If per adventure this is true, the buyer will be in a corner in his house rubbing his hands and licking his lips :xf.grin::xf.grin:

    Saw it too, seemed crazy. Sometime was listed, highly unlikely it was 'Lotion' (king) for that price.

    iotion.com still redirects to squadhelp so it was certainly that name that sold - if you see it in the recently sold just ctrl+f "iotion".

    the logo is just a mistake on the designers part.

    I could have bought it for way more than that! LOL!

    Its not a .com, must be some other TLD or, some other SLD (or, an IDN that looks like Lotion). Lotion.com still appears to be held by DigiMedia as part of their portfolio...

    There's not one iota of a chance that it was lotion.com ;)

    I think it's inappropriate and misleading, and this type of logos should not be accepted.

    Yes, the price was way to cheap but I bought it anyway just to be sure. You never know when you might have a twist of fate :)

    The logo said Lotion.com but as it turns out the domain that was being offered was iotion.com -- you can see how it looks like Lotion when the i is in caps (Iotion.com).

    At any rate, when this was clarified by SH, I asked for, and was immediately granted a full refund. Hopefully SH will remove it from their "sold" list (in the SH sellers dashboard - which auto-updates in real time) - as it's a bit misleading to say that it sold.

    Can anyone tell me why Squadhelp thought it'd be a good idea to put the logo as "Lotion". What the hell?

    Capital “i” looks like lowercase “L”

    mistakes happen. Keith was even refunded...

    lets @GrantP see if he’ll post outside sh thread

    Nah, If they thought it was really Lotion.com the price wouldn't be $2,499, as Squadhelp are the ones who choose the domain price at the end and not the seller. It would've been close to 6 figures.

    This tells me it more of an automated process;
    The logo and name misscapitalized

    It definitely begs the question

    How did this one slip through?? @GrantP
