    Dotser, MyDomain, and Domain.com are all Afternic Premium partners. I'm not sure about NetFirms, which is also a Domain.com reseller.

    You can view a list of Afternic's partners (both Premium and Standard) here:

    https://www.afternic.com/domain-reseller-network

    It's possible that list is not 100% up-to-date.

    There was some discussion in the SuperSales thread if this is still accurate, you'll likely have to read through several of the posts to find out, or maybe better if a few different people contact support to verify
    You are more than welcome to discuss this in the SuperSales thread so I am not the instigator causing the Sales Thread to derail : smile :

    V/e/r/i/P/h/a/r/m/a
    in king

    Sale venue: Outbound
    Seller: Me
    Asking price: $899 .. details below
    Sale price: $850
    Purchase price: $2 reg + $8.17 transfer.

    Details: Firstly, for the first time in a year of emailing potential buyers, I have received a reply saying "Thanks a lot for contacting us". All other replies until now were just "how much" or "no thanks".

    Handregged domain during domain.com $2 .com deals. Contacted all the potential buyers I could find. I usually prefer to look for buyers who have the exact or very similar keywords in their current domain but the buyers for this domain didn't own any similar domains, they just had a 'product' called "V/e/r/i/P/h/a/r/m/a". I found them on google. So I couldn't find their CEO and I just emailed all the "social@" and "info@" emails I found on their site and also contacted through the "Contact Us" page.

    The email was read a lot of times according to GetSideKick plugin. Few days later they replied with a offer of $600. They did their research... just few weeks ago I got desperate due to the low number of sales and reduced the prices of almost all my domains at AfterNic. The price for the above domain was set to $899. The domain was still listed at Sedo for $2000. And it was obvious that they thought if my BIN price is $899 I would take $600. I had to sell the domain but I knew that the $899 price I set for this domain was too low! I didn't understand why would I set the BIN at just $899!? But I couldn't back away from it, I needed the sale and I just told them I would not sell for $600, they told me that it's for sale at $899 and they are willing to pay up to $850. "It's fair". I took the offer and told them to pay through Escrow but the CEO said due to "accountability and bureaucratic reasons" he can only pay through PayPal or bank transfer. I chose PayPal.

    The domain was at MyDomain.com and I thought it would be a headache for them to create an account there so I asked them their preferred registrar, also they didn't knew anything about domain transfers so I transferred the domain into my GD account, which costed me $8.17 and then moved it into the buyers account.

    imo, it's a great domain and I don't understand why no one neither backordered it nor picked it up after it dropped, the .fr is developed and they would've benefited a lot from this domain, not sure why they didn't replied to me, or maybe my email went in their spam folder, I never checked, even though I use the GetSideKick plugin.

    So much to learn from this sale. Even though if I hadn't reduced the BIN at AfterNic, I might've sold it for 2x the current sale price, but for a $2 domain, $850 is great.

    I hope everyone benefits.

    Thanks NamePros.

    Great sale man !

    It also demonstrates the power of $2 purchases (I guess you wouldn't mind too much had it failed to sell)

    Do you park your domains at Afternic or forward them to the sales lander there showing the BIN?

    Yes I use a gmail account. AFAIK, you can use a custom email address with gmail. I don't know how to do it but I read somewhere that it's possible.

    It all adds up.

    Nice little sales, @Federer ! True they all add up!

    Where do you park the names while you're doing outbound?

    In Germany "dash" aka hyphen names are just as valuable as non hypen names...

    small gd premium listing sale
    bin=95$
    l i g h t n i n g b o l t .co

    bought np auction few motnhs ago for $1-2

    but hey... some domainers became milionaires selling handregs for $50 each ;)
    it just took them a while (someone told me this story recently hehe)

    I even forgot I ever put price on it and made it gd premium lol
    so this is first time for me I got this weird gd email talking about premium sale.
    usually I just sell on gd auctions.
    maybe I underestimate power of these listing types.
    if I understand correctly they are independent of gd auctions and one can for example set gd auction bin = $500 and gd premium $1000... not sure.. maybe someone more expert in this can confirm. but from looks of it that's possible.

    another reason to move as manyh domains as possible to GD... I alresdy had a bunch (of reasons)...premium listings only work for dn residing there.
