    i cannot share anything, testing cost a lot time+money, but i post it here to let you see that it's not impossible to make a lot of transactions, even in testing mode...

    Which transactions is this about? I checked two hours ago and there were no pending transfers at Namesilo and Godaddy.

    Number of closed transactions doesn't really say anything if we don't know the size of your portfolio and an average sales price.

    One could think that you buy hand reg domains for $10 and flipping them for $25 a piece - in that case there's a possibility to have lots of transactions.

    You say you can't share anything here so I guess we'll never know the answers.

    10k+

    See this thread https://www.angloinfo.com/poitou-ch...bad-experience-with-transferwise-need-advice- some people had unexplained 10 day delays. It might be better now, but a few years ago I did not want to send a five figure sum and have it not arrive right away and have to keep checking on it every day. Bank transfer can take three days but you know it arrives and is insured, it just costs more.

    will there be new landing pages coming? Or just the generic one?

    The colour change of the Domain.com for sale seems to go towards the right direction

    PS. But there is a 'bug' to fix. When you have a Logo and Green Background, the green on green effect os not pleasant at all.

    Agree, it looks really bad if you have a background. I barely see the domain name ... classic "make it till you break it" :)

    I complained to DAN support about deleting an old listing so that i can list mine. They did nothing about it after promising to attend to me.

    It is annoying. If not that Godaddy's commission is too high, i would have moved the domain name there.

    After using more than 15+ years of Escrow.com i must admit that i switched Eur sales to DAN as Escrow.com is not accepting credit card payments in EURO.

    Well done DAN!

    PS: But still using Escrow.com for 6 figure sales, as fees is way much better than DAN.

    Today's new font color for the domain is clashing with almost every background I'm trying to use, hard to read, can't recall having problem before with any background (did it used to adjust?). Also, it'd be cool if the tagline read "Domain Automation Network" or this was displayed anywhere on the landing pages so people get an idea what 'Dan' is, maybe on the Footer? as well as some more badges to help gain trust? Social media? contact #? Adyen link? on the checkout page? Now it's just blank. Giving feedback based on if I was a buyer, if I saw this stuff it would make a difference for me! So I know it will others.

    Also, how about a fundraiser so we can get some type of sales/introduction video made for the landing pages like the brandable marketplaces have? I'd donate because I know this is going to help increase sales.

    I know you guys have your hands full right now with the new launch, just watering my seeds :)

    Great job

    From a style perspective, the aesthetic of the landing pages and their colours do appear to have been down the list compared to core functionality, which as annoying and bothersome as that can be, is preferable to something looking great but not working. :xf.eek:

    And it is funny to me that with DAN we have a bit of the opposite going on compared to what we were experiencing with Undev, in that the landing pages looked great but the search and filters were somewhat lacking. Whereas now, we have some nice search functionality (more results per page would be nice) but the landing pages need some attention.

    The good thing is the styling can be fairly easily taken care of and I am sure Reza has mentioned that they actually have a redesign or new look under development and are at the moment just gradually rolling it out to make the transition easier.

    It has changed.
    The logo.
    Having the tagline as Domain Automation Network under dan.com can lead buyers to confusion. They don't know wt* that means.
    Now the new tagline reads ''fast & easy domain transfers''.
    It is perfect, by far the best tagline you could find.

    The layout is not perfect.
    People were saying that DAN alone is better than DAN.com.
    But with the new long tagline, you should definitly put the .com.
    Keep .com same as DAN font.

    I personally like the new font colors on the landing pages. Makes it stand out a lot.
    I've had a background for months but I took it off as it now looks clean.

    Currently,
    when you have a background, seller name is white. (when its not clickable).
    When you don't have a background, seller name is grey.
    When its clickable it's green in both cases (like examples below).

    So to make everyone happy.
    When there's a background, make the domain name appear as white.
    When there's no background, keep it green.

    Or let them choose color. Because as per example below, the green looks OK on the second picture, but very bad on the third red picture.

    The tagline or the layout?
    Would you like ''Domain Automation Network'' better?

    If not ''fast & easy domain transfers'', another combination of words perhaps?

    Do you agree that a the average person landing on the page and understanding that dan.com is about gaining ownership of a domain name fast and easy is better than

    landing on a page, reading DAN DOMAIN AUTOMATION NETWORK, not knowing if you're on a website about API HTTPS NETWORKING SATELLITES FIBEROPTICS, or some provider of INDUSTRIAL INTERNET SOLUTIONS that somehow happens to have your domain name which subconsciously means having to deal with a thousands steps and weeks before receiving an industrial quote with a billion terms.

    It has to be simple and self-explanatory.

    What could work and be fairly easy to implement is having two taglines rotate between one another.

    So "Domain Automation Network" shows first to immediately show what DAN is and then have "fast & easy domain transfers" afterwards.

    Hmm, might "fast, easy & secure domain transfers" also instil more confidence in normal users?

    How about "fast, easy and secure domain transfers"

    Security aspect is paramount to buyers.

    Many times I have asked them to remove the listing and to remind sellers to keep their lists up to date. They don’t pull it even if you prove you own it. It’s annoying.

    The layout is fine. I also like the logo, and I think it is good they removed .COM from DAN. But I think the tagline should convey that they are about buying and selling domain names - not just transferring them.

    Sedo has "Buy. Park. Sell. Domains". That pretty much says it all. Undeveloped's old tagline was also good, I think. But I don't remember exactly how it went.

    Yes I discovered that with my background the domain name is almost invisible. For now I simply removed the background image, but in longer term would like if somehow it is set so that a contrasting colour to the background image is used when there is an image.

    Re tagline, I understand that DAN is the transfer part, but agree that a tagline that was something like "an easy way to find, buy and transfer domain names" might be more inclusive.
