Labeled as offers in Domain Selling and Domain Sales started by Haris, Feb 5, 2019.
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.
Great Price. Close the deal, Friend...
I countered with $1750, if they won't increase their offer I will accept $1250. Thanks everyone
let us know if you have lost the deal ....
if this was on gd auctions then accepting his intiial 1250$ 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.
Let's hope buyer doesn't find this thread, then offers $750.
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".
Nice. Countering was the right move then imo.
Let us know how it goes, and good luck.
One grand? Fantastic money in our terrible times Take it mate!!
It's a good name worth $1750 or more. GL
eCommerce = 100s of thousands
123Commerce = 1250?
I'd probably ask the buyer that too.
Take the win.
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.
