    One more significant minus of SedoMLS - it is NOT unified...
    Many registrars in Sedo network are showing just domains in some TLDs at their own choice and ignore all other MLS eligible TLDs...

    + caching issues...
    For example, when you update your prices on Sedo or even completely delete your listings - Namecheap will continue to show your OLD prices or the deleted domains for week or even longer...
    This is just 1 example, some other registrars have similar problems...

    By number of names - direct arrangement with a domainer who has been selling a pile of them along with theirs on Flippa for a 50:50 split - but it's worth it for the cashflow on sub $500 domain names

    Just 1 example: check at Name.com any .ONE domain (where BIN is set on Sedo)...
    And you will get only "taken" message. Even if your .ONE domains are managed by PremiumMLS registrar.

    As I see in this poll, @Sedo is below even GoDaddy Auctions...
    And I'm not surprised.

    I used my own landers, PayPal, and Escrow for most transactions.
    Had an afternic and sedo here and there, but for the most part cutting out the middle man worked just fine for me this year.

    My first domain sale was on ebay! 2nd also on ebay (bought on ebay for $1 sold for $30) ; Some cheapies on Namepros, $100 sale on GoDaddy (ws extension); one lowball offer on Efty but I pointed all domains on DAN now and sold one domain for $200 but did outbound offers before to the buyer. I still hope to sell something on Afternic.

    Because Afternic doesn't report anything according to their policy.

    My sales avenues have shifted over time. GoDaddy Premium (now Afternic) was the clear leader for years. But more recently I'm finding names sales via them have slowed.

    Nowadays BrandBucket & Direct Sales are catching up. Sedo remains a small % while I have made zero sales from Uniregistry or Bodis landers. I made my first sale via Dan/Undeveloped this year (2020). So perhaps landers will finally start to show life. I've had landers for a few years and this is my first lander sale. Until a few days ago - was a complete waste of my time.

    GD made some sort of change to their sales pages and that killed sales there for me. I wish they'd care more about how the sale price is presented in their flow. Go back to what used to be, it worked better for generating premium sales (although of course from their perspective the flow may now work better for initial domain sales).

    I personally think that you should have both your own "make offer page" and you should be listed in all the marketplaces mentioned in this thread. Even if there is a 1% chance you can sell your name there.

    As we spend less time on developing our offer pages and storefront for domain investors we spend more revenue on marketing our domain marketplace. Other marketplaces will spend more on marketing their marketplaces and in the end the domain investor benefits from listing his name everywhere.
    strong names and great exposure will certainly help you sell your names faster.

    Do you price the same as on Afternic/Sedo or provide some discount?

    I have all domains on Afternic and Sedo as “make offer” with a minimum of $1000. Buyers are mostly finding me directly through my landing page.

    Very few. I try not to keep names for too long. As soon as I get names in, I start selling them directly to end users.

    Correct me if i'm wrong. But domains need to be with namecheap - to sell on namecheap?

    Correct they do. I don't have as many registered at Namecheap as I once did, but had well over 100 there for awhile. Now that Namecheap registered names can be listed on Afternic premium network, at least in supported extensions, I suspect fewer will use Namecheap Marketplace. Still I list there in first 60 days when lock is on, and when I have reduced prices on names I don't plan to probably renew.
