Applies to Godaddy, Uniregistry, Afternic, Dan, GoDaddy Auctions etc.


Can you imagine paying 25% on a 100k sale and then taxes on top of that?

What is left for the domain owner?

Yikes :eek:

I wonder which commission structure would apply if the offer comes in before Feb 1st but is only accepted after Feb 1st...

I might be in a situation where I could accept an offer via GD Auction before the end of the month (so I would have to pay the old 20% commission) but if I wait so many days and get passed Feb 1st then I might only pay a 15% commission.

Good question and I think the answer would be:

Whichever scenario makes GD more money would almost certainly apply.

I know what you mean but it’s still rather clear (from my experience) that people are more inclined to buy directly via GD Auctions than even the other sites that explicitly say they’re a GD brand. The GD brand helps close sales that might not happen otherwise.

I use Afternic and Dan. Though, I only moved to Dan.com not that long ago after many years with Voodoo.
I like Dan's system much better than Afternic.

I am not sure what I am going to do just yet.

I have a lot of average domains priced and listed at Afternic, but about the same amount unpriced.
These are normally better domains, or ones I was just too lazy to price. :)

The priced ones at Afternic will stay.

As far as Dan goes, I am not real exited about my domain capturing the lead, negotiating, and also paying a 15% fee.

The removal of the price tier on Afternic is really going to hurt on high dollar sales, though that probably effects limited people.

While I am not a big fan of the Dan.com fees going up, the 25% fee is especially galling to me.
It is just a direct shot at any fair competition which basically tries to limit customer options.

Hi Brad. Nice to see you. Agree hard to get excited about paying commission on your own leads! LOL
