    Just wondering if its just a recycle bin for domainers who buy and sell to each other or... are there end users?

    Even domainers are rare there.

    I would think it would be rare for an end-user to find it, even though it's a public marketplace

    And for domainers, you have to remember that the bulk of the names at NL have probably been listed for sale on other places where domainers congregate (Namepros, Twitter, Private chat groups, etc) so everyone has already seen them and passed

    Also, as @Bob Hawkes mentioned this week, domainers tend to register domains in bulk during promo periods and then list them in bulk on NameLiquidate for quick flips so when you have hundreds (or thousand) of domains being added at the same time it makes it harder to find names

    Your analysis makes perfect sense. Makes me wonder what the vision of Name Liquadates creators really is and where the value is. Although some people are reporting sales of 100+ etc which makes me wonder.

    Perhaps this would be a good place for quick flips as you said.

    Per 50+ of my auctions - the only one finished with bid ($100).

    I don't actually get this impression - I think the majority are listed on the standard retail sites (Afternic, Sedo, DAN), some still listed while on NameLiquidate (which is problematic if they sell both places). I watch NamePros and Twitter carefully and while I know cases where listed other places first, that is not true for majority in my opinion. It seems to me many of the listings come from one of the following ways:
    • People who have decided to cull back on a portfolio, or even edge out of domain investing. I suspect many of the aged exact match .com are from those who are leaving parking. They go to NL first (so they get some return) but many will end up in expiry stream if don't sell on NL. And then you can pay more for the ones that are about to expire, and some were already taken.
    • People just seeing NameLiquidate as another way to list names for sale, and listing a bunch they have recently registered. This includes the promotion dumps.
    As to @dave321 question, are there retail buyers. I think in same way that most GD auctions are domain investors and HD, etc., most NL are domain investors. However, on both platforms there are probably some retail buyers, and it seems that retail involvement is increasing in the GD auctions. Even on NamePros auctions there is a mix to some degree of retail and wholesale buyers.

    But really for most end users looking for a name they are going to go to one of the brandable places or large marketplaces, because it is more efficient to find a name they want.

    @DanSanchez can comment on his thinking when he proposed NameLiquidate, but pretty sure it was mainly as a place for domain investors to find names. It is true it takes a lot of time in search, but I have found it a good place to find domain names at reasonable prices.

    I think there are only two cases when retail buyers find names at NL. One when the seller promotes names they have just listed on social media and an end user sees it, or in a few cases when the highlighted names on the NameLiquidate Twitter feed catches a user's attention.

    NameLiquidate is only about a year old, so still building a community of users. I am glad we have it.

    Hopefully the end users won't ever discover NL en mass so thus our liquidation prices will be for colleague domainers only.

    I've picked up five domains so far. A couple of them I will use for a dropshipping business I am trying to start up. I think that if you can automate the process, it will end up a lot more lucrative than trying to park for pennies. I've looked through thousands of domains and cherry picked what I liked, domains that would help make, say, facebook ads look more legit. So it is a good service for me.
