Had a small sale:
Domain Name: smttn.com
Sale Venue: GD Listings
Sale Price: $125
Purchase Price: Hand Reg for $4.90
Time: 20 Days from initial contact to payment
So this was slightly interesting for me. The domain originally expired and I was planning to drop it. While it was in RGP, I received an offer of $20. Now I wasn't planning to extract the domain from the previous registrar for a mere $5 profit (GD Min fees is $15) and factoring in my purchase price, I'd actually earn nothing. So with nothing to lose, countered it with a $299. The buyer reverted with a $125 counter to my counter which I accepted. I wasn't out of the woods yet as 28 days of the RGP had already passed. So I called the previous registrar and asked them to allow a transfer. They demanded a $50 restoration fee to do that. Fortunately, showing them the ICANN rules made them see sense and they restored the domain without any charge. It took over a week for the domain to be transferred and confirmed by GD support and another week for payment to finally hit.
Phew.. Sorry for the long story but this was an interesting experience and a nice profit where I was going to suffer a small loss. Thank you for reading through
Ps. After GD fees, I should have received $100 but I only received $95. No idea where the $5 disappeared

Woowhoo, this is my first auction sale! I marketed this domain a while back and not much interest. I wanted it gone so I priced it to get rid of it. My model is to fast flip either by end user or auction.

I woke up this morning to find a BIN sale.

From my landing page
Reg Fee on the drop in January
Domain name: Y*o*g*a*T*r*a*d*e*r.com
Domain industry: Health
Sale venue: Private inbound inquiry through Parkingcrew and completed in Payoneer Escrow
Asking price: $1,000
Sale price: $750
Purchase price: Reg Fee+renewal (total cost less than $20).
$1,000 offer received, immediately accepted and started Escrow. Buyer replied he needs consultation from his partner and asked to decrease price to $500. Agreed on $750. I was happy to sale even if I received $100 offer, so good sale.
Lesson: Always counter, if you accept straight away, buyer will think they've made a high offer and will back down from their offer.

Auction that ended in negotiation.
If not counter, balk at the offer or if planning to accept first say you will talk the offer over with partner..etc. Sometimes it's good to add a stipulation like accepting the offer only if they pay the escrow fees or something else creative.
That's another good point bro. You can as well say. "I would have asked for more but you caught me". It's funny but works
I did not intend to renew and was going to let it expire. Fortunately billing software auto-paid for me
How do you mean?
Wow! But can you imagine! That is why the adage says, every disappointment is a blessing in disguise.
Congrats and cheers.
