    The new immigration reform group that Ron Jackson wrote about last week paid $1,500 for FWD.us.

    That’s just one of the end user sales that Sedo made last week. It had a big week, closing nearly $2 million in sales. Here are some of its other end user sales.

    SumUp, a Square competitor that allows you to accept credit cards with your mobile phone, bought Sumup.com.cn for $750.

    Data networking accessories (e.g. cables and connectors) company KSM Limited bought KSM.co.uk for 2,800 GBP, which it now forwards to madaboutcable.com.

    Game hosting company Cubed Host bought CubedHost.com for $2,595 and forwards it to CubedHost.org.

    Bridge Entertainment, Inc bought CelebrityScores.com for $940. The company runs E-Poll Research, which offers E-Score Celebrity to provide ratings on celebrities.

    Campus Special, which offers online food ordering at universities, bought Campus101.com for $2,500.

    HR company Adecco paid $3,500 for the domain hack Adec.co, which I imagine they’ll use as a URL shortener.

    World Travel Holdings, which specializes in cruises, bought CheapRiverCruises.com for $20,000. I saw an ad in The Economist yesterday for a Mississippi river cruise. Perhaps Carnival Cruises should offer river cruises. When their boats malfunction they’ll be really close to shore.

    Hempconsult UG bought HempTrade.com for $1,900. Business needs no explanation.

    Boston property management company Butler Property Management paid $700 for BostonMAApartments.com.

    Document sharing company iDeals Solutions Group S.A. paid 1,400 EUR for ideals.net. It uses the domain IdealsCorp.com.

  • “When their boats malfunction they’ll be really close to shore.”

    Which won’t help much on their Amazon cruises … where their jumping-ship customers … get eaten by piranha before they can reach shore.

    Should make for some interesting youtube videos, though. ;-)
