Re: Buy & Sell Rules
You can leave it in Buy & Sell as long as it mentions a minimum offer.
Some sort of price or starting price must be set.
You are then free to ask for offers in topic or via private message.
If you want to ask for offers without setting a starting price you can do so in the Showcase Section because technically that domain is not for sale and is simply being displayed. To show a potential buyer that we mean business we have to start the negotiation process with a base price in the Buy & Sell section.
Members can offer less but it gives potential purchasers an idea of what the domain owner is looking for.
Something like: Offers over $5000 will be considered.
You have no obligation to sell if someone offers 5k, you can simply state you may consider that offer if no higher bids are received. Even then, we are encouraging a free and open marketplace between that buyer and seller, no different than how a negotiation goes in private. We want to avoid the draconian rules imposed by similar forums and encourage buyer and seller to come to terms without moderation.
