    I agree it can go below IF we take a lot of time to respond and elongate this conversation. So, I'd respond timely with enthusiasm and authenticity and try to close it in next few emails.

    if this was on gd auctions then accepting his intiial 1250$ if he refuses your increase will be simple... otherwise, it's not a guarantee. but gl. keep posted.

    How does that work on an auction to “counter”?

    All the sales platforms I’m aware of Afternic Sedo DomainAgents and also by common law - counteroffer extinguishes your right to accept the original offer, unless buyer wishes to make that original offer again.

    On GoDaddy you can counter and accept the original offer.
    Then it's up to buyer to pay or not.

    This thread is indexed in Google, found it just now, just needed to put the word "domain" in the query.

    Its a Good domain. But as you said it might take a lot of time is true.
    Try for $ 1500 and close it. Since the other person is for seriously interested in a startup, Consider Encouraging businessmen. After all this is what dominating is about and where they have to reach finally. :)

    Sorry if I missed this but where did the offer come from? This is key imo. If it's through Sedo or Afternic and the buyer rejects your counter you can't contact them again so I'd be more inclined to accept the offer. Whereas if you have direct contact it is easy to counter and if they reject say something along the lines of "you're a getting a steal but I'll take $1250".

    It's a good name worth $1750 or more. GL

    If:

    eCommerce = 100s of thousands
    123Commerce = 1250?

    I'd probably ask the buyer that too.

    this is a really helpful perspective, unless is a family jewel, tits ok to take an offer even if you dont think its there last one, becuase you get a deal when they are ready to buy.

    You gotta reel a buyer in like a fish. Just because he bites doesn’t mean you’re going to land him.

    Of course - in the end both buyer and seller benefit. But you’ve still got to convince the buyer sometimes of how and why it’s beneficial to him to pay your price, or why your price is correct. And therein lies the skill in reeling.

    Interesting dilemma, @Haris. I feel for you. I think, considering the offer came thru your landing page, you might have a bit more wriggle room. No brokerage fees for example. I think, you did the right thing to counter $1750. If he knows it previously sold for $2.5k. That will play on his mind somewhat. I think you should expect him to respond, one way or another. And if it's negative, you then have then option to accept his offer. If it's still on the table. So follow up with him in the same timeframe he took to follow up with you. So you don't look desperate :) And of course keep us informed how it goes :)

    Yes good point stub. If I have a given domain listed someplace where there is a 20% commission, back of my mind always is willingness to accept a direct, net to me, offer of 80% of that full price.
