In the online world what you say is what you are. Here you don’t get to see all your peers, talk with them etc. What you really make out of them is with what they say.

What prompted me to write this post is my Hotel Domains sale. There were multiple interests and most of the potential buyers were not very familiar with the my expected mode of payment i.e Paypal Masspay. If you are not familiar with Paypal Masspay i suggest you to check out Jamie’s post at DotWeekly.com.

Once the potential buyers were not meeting my criteria of Paypal Masspay payment which was choosen for security reasons, how do i go about next. The obvious method to choose from security point of view is which buyer is a genuine one or in other words is any buyer i choose to deal with is a possible scammer. I choosed one buyer and the deal was closed in a smooth and swift manner.

Later i found out that other interested buyers were also genuine ones because they were either members at domain name forums or owned websites which were running for long time. I felt sorry for the other interested buyers. Any interested buyer who could have said more about themselves and explained they were genuine would have secured the deal.

Whenever you are a member at a domain name forum say that you are, if you own a blog or website say that you own them or anything which would prove you are a genuine domainer. All these things help to the person whom you are dealing with to make decisions.

After all, in the online world what you say is what you are.

I noticed something odd with Sedo’s Commission fees for a Domain Name sale at Sedo.

I parked a domain recently with Sedo. Surprisingly got an offer of $120 which i countered. The prospective buyer made a second offer of $450 after a couple of days.

Sedo’s fees is “$50 or 10% Sale Price whichever is greater” as i parked this .com domain only recently. Sedo also says “No minimum fee if the domain is parked with Sedo; only the flat 10% rate applies”.

For the first and the second offers the Sedo fees listed in my Sedo account was as follows.

For the offer $120$50 is the Sedo fees
For the offer $450 – 10% of Sale Price i.e $45 is the Sedo fees

I found it a bit odd. After a bit of thinking i came to the following conclusion.

When the first offer of $120 was made the domain was in the “$50 or 10% of Sale Price” slab. Hence they calculated the commission fees as $50.

After two days when the second offer of $450 was made the domain moved into the “No minimum fee. Only 10% flat fee” and hence the commission fees of $45.
