Labeled as various in Domain Buying and Selling Discussion, started by RJ, Apr 19, 2005
Congrats on your sale. But what does ‘drop reg’ mean? Pardon my ignorance.
The domain expired and then was dropped, and when it is available you register it.
lakecollection.com Sold $199 USD
Venue : Afternic.com
Purchase price : $12
Hold time : 2 years
How do you calculate profit?
Total sale this month minus total purchases?
Eg: I made a little over 16K but my purchase price was under $50 total for the names sold, but I haven't calculated my total purchases, but I usually purchase close to sales, as I want to reinvest all my sales back to business. Monthly profit calculation is a bit odd, need to figure out how best I will calculate.
eg, last month I spent 8500 in new purchases and renewals.
You undersold this gem. Might be an upgrade. There's f/l/o/w/c/a/r/b/o/n/p/a/r/t/s .com in operation. It's a good flip overall
You didnt undersell it. It may not be them. Good luck, twiki!
(keep reporting, he’s selfishly asking you)
6,500 🤔 how long have you been into "domaining"/purchase ?
following twiki’s story. Awhile, sometimes two profession more hand-in-hand than you think. Go, twiki!
Pls can you disclose average sales price of those 12 names?
Acquired for: $3
Hold time: 6 months
Small but worthwhile
$649 is not “small”

This has an interesting story which deserves a post. Open to feedback on whether if there is a better way to handle this situation.
Domain was listed for BIN at $1995 at DAN and Afternic, and Make Offer on Sedo. Buyer contacted me on Sedo with initial offer for $1000. I countered with $1995 as he could have bought for same price on DAN and Afternic. Apparently, the Sedo offer made by me was "binding" for seven days and I was "obligated" to deliver the domain if buyer accepted the counter. So to be on the safer side, I switched DAN and Afternic to Make Offer. Same night, I received a $2500 opening offer on DAN. I immediately knew that I had under-priced this one. I tried contacting Sedo on email (they have no live chat) on whether it was binding on me to deliver this domain, and it was under offer at another marketplace. After 24 hours, I got a pretty vague response with no clear direction. I was too tired to figure it out further. I messaged the buyer on DAN asking him if he had placed an offer on SEDO, and asked him to just accept my counter there. Buyer obliged and saved himself some dollars.
I have since converted all my Sedo names to BIN as well. I had observed a good uptick in offers while they were on Make Offer, but this process is too complicated to manage. So, all BINs on SEDO for now.
And finally, buyer refused push to Godaddy, so additional 30 day wait for the domain get out of the 60-day lock and be transferred out.
Fun experience. Buyer got a great deal. I got a great ROI. Reinvest, and repeat.
Bought Waterise.com in Bargain Bin on Namepros for I think under $10 held for a few years and sold for $10,000 on the inbound on DomainNameSales.com
