I have been involved with the sale of a particular product line for my online store for a number of years.
For those of you that don't know, I run a few online stores and they are getting bigger and bigger with my highest volume store now approaching two million in annual sales.

The store has a number of product lines but there is one I am heavily involved with and I decided to check and see if I could purchase the .ca to target traffic.

The product has a 4 word name (Protocol for Life Balance) and I decided to buy the first word .ca (Protocol) which is the most recognizable part of the brand name.

Going online I saw the domain.ca was no longer in use but used to be a viable website.

I used the CIRA contact form to contact the owner and made an offer for 5k, the owner of the domain contacted me the next day and said the offer was reasonable and we have a deal.

I sent him one email transfer for 3k, he sent me the transfer code and the next day I sent the final 2k.

Smooth as butter

Lesson here....

Make a fair offer and you will be treated fairly in return.

PS. Now I forward the one word .ca to that specific product line on the online store, it has increased traffic exponentially.

Like I said, I am heavily involved with the Canadian aspect of the company and I am the biggest distributer of that line in Canada.

Trust me there are no issues there.

SORRY

This is sage advice
Domain name owners are inundated with calls and emails about their domain names
I registered a domain name last week and forgot to put piracy on
Wishing 5 minutes the calls started about the website i would need!
anyways I digress
owners inundated with lowball offers are bound to respond to reasonable ones
I always design my offers to illicit a response
To me the response is important
without a response there can be no yes

I put in 1 offer via the cira contact form and the owner accepted, the deal was done.
The owner thought 5k was a fair deal and we did the transaction in minutes via e-transfer.

Not much more I can say other than I have repeated this numerous times and acquired some decent domains.



Cannot really say more about the transaction because it worked with the first contact
