Domain aftermarket adds new features for buying and selling domain names.
Domain name aftermarket Sedo has revamped how domain details pages look to personalize transactions.
The changes add information about the seller of the domain, including how much activity the seller has participated in as a seller on Sedo. This is helpful for domain buyers tired of placing offers and not receiving a response.
Once negotiations begin between seller and buyer, the seller will also be able to see a Buyer’s Activity Index that indicates if the buyer is active on the site. The seller will be able to see the buyer’s VAT status (not applicable for U.S. sellers) and when the buyer’s account was created.
Of course there are two ways to look at the buyer’s activity index. If it’s high (5 stars), they are probably an active domain investor. If it’s low you shouldn’t necessarily look at the buyer as unreliable. It could just be an end user who found out your domain was listed on Sedo.
Other changes include:
-The new domain detail page also shows when the domain was listed at Sedo.
-Sellers can link to similar domains for sale on their domain detail pages.
-Buyers can submit comments to the seller with their initial offer.
I especially like the ability to add comments with initial offers.
These are great additions for Sedo and show that the company is listening to its customers. These changes come as a result of user feedback and testing the company performed with existing clients.
