    Can never quite work these thinks out. Had a domain listed at Dan for ages,(sales parked) think it evens goes back to the Undeveloped .com days . Yet had barely began moving my domains to Sedo (just to try things out , again) and Bingo - congrats on your sale - I'd upped the price by a bit (well quite a bit by moving it from US$ to UK£, same number)
    Don't you hate it when you think - I really need to understand this business better - even after 20 years.

    3 minutes work for £300 for Sedo. it was a 10% charge
    I hadn't even finished my listings or even started on their 'optimizations'

    Amazing. We see and learn new and incredible (sometimes very strange) things every day. Thanks for sharing. BIN "seems" to work better at Sedo. In my experience over the last 5 years, I have only ever sold ONE domain (co.za) on Sedo back in 2016. All my domains are listed there (not parked) with "make offer".

    Just to make sure, was this particular domain listed (not parked) at Sedo before the sale? Did you then "park" (point the nameservers) to Sedo? OR was it never listed at Sedo at all?

    Thanks again.

    Yes just to clarify. It had been listed at Sedo - And yes it was just a case of going through all the settings to repoint the nameservers and check all the boxes for No Adverts and going through all the due processes.

    I'm pretty sure it's gone to a reseller. Two good words that have multiple sites (using my two words as part of a three word string) It should make for a good outbound investment. Something I hadn't done with this domain

    It is related to notifications by Sedo Watchlist of keywords or domains, many domainers/buyers use it...
    Luck doesn't matter here.

    I had 2 turbosales on Sedo of .PRO for 849 EUR and 2021 EUR BINs.
    Both were sold within 48h (due to weekend).
    After very long silence on DAN.

    Watchlist page works only when you are logged in @Sedo.

    I don't often try to get my head around any particular sale. You know the Who, what and why's If I've fixed priced it, a sale is done and dusted. Too much investigation can often make feel let-down by your own pricing. Never good to find one of your previous sales on DNJ reports sold at 5 x the price.

    The reason I posted was the sale notification came along before I'd even activated the Sedo Partner options (I'd used the word optimization) It was that quick. the whole thing was just very unexpected while your in the middle of listing

    It was a .com - two short words

    @Revisiting how do you optimise your Sedo listings? Is there a good checklist to follow something like that?

    As I know, if you already purchased similar domains on Sedo - they automatically monitor these keywords and inform you immediately about BIN listings (it can be disabled in Account settings).

    If just listings - nothing to optimize there.
    If with parking - set Sales Lander v1.

    Nice sales. I have listed most of my names on sedo, seeing traffic on sales pages. Hoping to see sales soon, keeping my 🤞 cross.

    @ddesigns I didn't know you can sell names by keeping your fingers crossed? :hilarious: British sarcasm.
