My First Domain Name Sale At Bido

August 27, 2009

I have made by first domain name sale at Bido pending payment. Overall i am impressed with Bido. Few of the unique interesting features that stood out were

1. Auto Domain Name Owner Verification

Bido asks you to add a randomly generated tag in the whois details of the flag. Once you do this, bido automatically checks for this tag in the whois details of the domain name thereby confirming you have the control over the domain name when you click on “verify”.

2. Bido’s social voting system

I have already written about this in my earlier post.

One important link missing was that, once the domain name is sold, Bido didn’t give a follow up mail after the domain name sale. I was a bit surprised as Bido mailed even when the domain name which i voted for came to auction. Honestly i was expecting a mail saying the domain name has been sold and pending payment. I only got a mail after the buyer made the payment, asking me to push the domain name.

Overall i love Bido as it gives me an easy alternative option to sell my domain names.

    I sold a domain through Bido on August 24 but I have not received payment yet. I left a message with Bido on august 28 but I have not heard back yet. I am assuming that the buyer has not paid for the domain yet, but it would be nice to get a status as there is no record/history of the sale in my Bido account.

    As per Bido’s rules the buyer has 10 days to make the payment. May be thats the reason. Just submit a ticket at Bido and you should be on the right track.
