    Sold X | E | Z | A | R | .com for €225 through undeveloped.
    Inbound offer.

    ...didn't realize undeveloped charges also VAT for their commission :(
    Will try to use escrow com or others in the future.

    Common misconception it’s a numbers game, along with keyword experience. 99% of others who play in such a market would constantly lose.

    A few more of my very recent "hand-registered/dropped domains" (inbound/passive) sales:

    techsell.co.uk - £300
    daaz.org - €200
    homeselection.co.uk - £500
    brandsgroup.co.uk - £199
    heartclinic.net - $250
    aqua-style.de - €450
    callforce.co.uk - £300
    e-parking.co.uk - £850
    kitchensupplies.net (pending sale).


    All Sold via Sedo/Undeveloped landing pages.

    They all count and add up fast - especially when the acquisition costs remain reasonably low. Key is quantity and at least "average" quality.

    You need to have both for the model to work.

    Perhaps the other 99% would fail, but it still shows hyphens can work.

    You have to understand this seller is one of a kind, and very skilled at his trade going back. As well a numbers game, not just a 500 domain portfolio.

    Most of those sales (as with 90% of my sales listings) had BINs with a "make offer" link.

    With that type of model/sales page, you can capture the vast majority of the types of end buyers (buyers with little time/patience, buyers with budgets that meet your BIN, buyers with lower budgets, buyers that know little about domain prices/value etc.).

    Having a "make offer" link, included with clearly-indicated BIN prices on attractive pages with no ads will move more inventory than any other method under the sun. If you need a rep @ Sedo to remove the ads on your parked pages (ex.www.e-Chat.co.uk), send me a PM and I'll message you the rep.

    It goes without saying that you should leave the top-tier names (minority of the domains of most portfolios) with "make offer" for more-than-obvious reasons.

    i believe anyone can link directly to a sedo for sale page like so:

    https://sedo.com/search/details/?domain={DOMAIN_NAME}&tracked=&partnerid=&language=us

    replace {domain_name} with your name

    however keep in mind that sedo is setup in such a way that if u keep both bin and makeoffer like Federer suggests.. buyer cannot click buynow to purchase instantly, but rather he can just enter the bin price amount equivalent.. which is then still submitted for your consideration

    this is not true. and it is a mix of experience, team work, and large portofolio for him.

    99% of domainers will not achieve similar sale results as he does, neither in hyphen domains nor in non hyphen domains.

    If you have a BIN listed on the domain, a buyer can click on that BIN button and checkout - even with the "make offer" option next to the BIN (activated from within your account settings).

    Ok, but if I thought of "e-parking" and he thought of "e-parking", it would not work for me but it will for him ? I'm not picking on him or questioning his skills, but if you reg'd that domain and put it on sedo/afternic/undeveloped it would not matter who you are. Unless you are doing clever outbound or crafty landing pages, a domain is a domain, no matter who registers it.

    hmmm.. I am in north america.. and can assure you that it is not so here.. however, if you are in europe.. maybe it works differently. I do know bin+makeoffer on same page is a beta thing they told me.. did not have it before..
    and I know for fact that here, if I setup domain with both bin and makeoffer.. there is no bin button anywhere.. all buyer can do is enter bin price.. to let you know he is willing to pay it.. then you still can decline or accept.. which of course defies purpose of a bin.. if you still get option to decline or ask for more.

    wouldn't be the first stupid thing sedo does.. especially of late.

    the point here is that, as was said, due to his extensive experience going beyond most people... most of the dashed domains we'd think to reg, would not be on the list he'd reg.

    in exact same ways as it would be for non dashed domains.

    otherwise if it'd not be so.. then it'd be like saying that someone with a lot of experience does things as someone with much less experience. and thats not how experience works

    cheers

    i just double checked it with one name.. I setup bin.. and left it as makeoffer in options.

    here is what I get... it just says what bin price is.. no option to buynow.. just makeoffer equal to bin or other.

    You are not setting up the sales pages correctly.

    Under DOMAIN MANAGEMENT, click on SALES SETTINGS.

    Select a domain, and add in a price (ex. $2,500)
    - Click on PRICE OPTION and choose BUY NOW

    Then click on MY ACCOUNT, ACCOUNT SETTINGS. And click on the option that says:
    I want to accept offers on my Buy Now listings.”

    The sales page(s) will then be set up (for those with BIN option activated) with BIN Buttons and a “make offer” link. The pages will then appear as follows: www.1-Gold.com

    Don't like to report about sales but this one may interest some of you, I was bored and check for some Hand reg domains and found Mover Sarasota dot com, did a google quick search and entered the first website I saw, and it's really stupid but I try my luck with the chatbots on this kind of websites, someone answered me and take the domain for 50$ only.

    Very True, Federer makes it look easy but its not. He has a skill for picking the right types of names. It is no easy task
