    I've noticed quite a few of my domain names go in pending sale status at Afternic, which is the sale as "on hold" status at GoDaddy, and the sales did not complete. I asked Alan Shiflett from GoDaddy to tell me what it means when a name is in one of those statuses and why sales sometimes do not go through after being in those statuses. He gave me an extensive reply: https://domaininvesting.com/what-on-hold-pending-sale-means-at-afternic-godaddy/

    Whenever I see "pending sale" on AN, domain was never sold at the end... It usually stands pending for 7 days and then go back to list.
    This is just my experience, other members said there is roughly 50/50 chance for sale to go through

    I had a pending sale once on a five figure name but then it disappeared :(

    I don't check Afternic enough to have seen other times... but that one hurt

    Just had one of my domains go from pending sales to listing yesterday. Funny thing was I let the name expire 2 weeks ago with no plans of renewing it.

    I was surprised that someone wanted to buy it a couple of days after expiry. But I wasn't tempted enough to renew it again without having the deal in the bag.

    Can't tell if the pending sale was a real buy that opted out or a system glitch. Either way, don't care at the moment as I have already deleted my listings as the name goes through the expiry process
