    Purchased for low $xxx, I don't like to accept initial offers but not sure how much I should ask for, maybe buyer has deep pockets, received inquiry via Efty but can't pinpoint who the buyer really is (multiple people with same name).

    ah ok

    well from what I remember about .ws and .ws sales... 3000$ offer is basically something to accept without much thinking. ;)

    I don't think so, the only appraisal scam I came across was when I registered my first domain years ago, and I don't think those scammers do it via landing page, they email us on our whois email.

    I can confirm that it's a legit buyer who runs a cloud computing company offering cloud, hosting, web and app development services, but they are a small company.. who posted on their official Twitter and FB over 3 years ago..

    scams happen even through landing pages.. I had a few.. aside from this, there are also the so called not serious buyers.. so imo if u have offer of 3k for a poorly selling tld like this.. then you should not even bother to counter.. and just go for it.. epsecially now that you say they are small.

    Once in a lifetime offer imho. I'd sell in a heartbeat before the other party changes their mind (or sleep off their intoxication) :xf.grin:

    I think they saw MediaOptions asking price for .com and thought $3000 should be the price of .ws..

    Got to accept before they look at other extensions available. keep the reply as if you've slept on it and indeed deliberated about selling. But move it forward.

    Reads to me that they have taken a liking without really viewing all their other options

    Let me add here that an offer through Efty is way different than an offer through a platform like Sedo. With Efty you can offer anybody anything you like and you are not commited to buy. On Sedo you are committed to buy or you get banned.

    So getting an offer on Efty has to be taken with a grain of salt. If you say yes right away they could back down because they might think they offered too much.

    Personally I would respond like this (I am not telling you how to respond, just stating what I would do)

    I would respond with a positive first.

    Thank you very much for your offer, it is an offer that is definitely in range of my target selling price.

    Then the not so negative

    I was thinking more in the $5000 range for this one but if you would like to make the deal fairly fast I could be persuaded to meet you half way for a total selling price of $4000 USD.

    This way the buyer can deal and you are not accepting too fast. It is close enough that they probably won't walk and it allows them to realize a discount. The response for me is pretty standard and has been very effective for me when closing deals.

    This doesn't help...
    I had many non-payers on Sedo... and my friends as well.

    Agreed but you will get les feel out offers than on Efty.
    On Efty one can offer anything and even if the end user specifies 10k you can just input 10k and then in the comments say 5k is my offer. Nothing commits you even to the 5k when the offer is made.

    So the 3k could just be a "feel out" offer and there is a risk if one responds too fast with a Yes.

    The best protection is on 4.cn (if no changes, this info is from past experience).
    You can bid only what you have on your account balance.

    Just ask: if they can increase their offer...
    Without any counteroffers.

    I like this one a lot. I've bought many of these dot ws emoji domains and still hold a quite few pretty good ones. The demand I have seen has been from Marketing savvy people. I have sold many in the $x,xxx range. This one is a real good one with what the cloud represents to any Techy Company.

    I saw that 250k ask from Drew's MO for the same emoji domain of yours, but in dot com. If anyone will get to that 6-figure range, it will be Drew for sure.

    Since you are debating this with yourself at this current offer price range then I believe MD's suggested reply here is right on. If anything just change the numbers but otherwise this reply sounds perfect to me.

    Good luck and keep us posted on how everything goes.

    I think it's worth more. It's one of those emoji domains that there is no question exactly what you see is exactly what you get. It can't be confused for any thing other then a cloud. That makes a great marketing tool.

    Either accept the sale price or hold.

    If you’d be happy at $3,000 than accept it, if you feel strongly you could get more then counter and stick to your guns.
