New domain name auction platform launches.
DomainConsultant.com has launched BoxCar.com, a new domain name auction site.
The service is very different from typical marketplaces such as Afternic and Sedo. It focuses on auctions only and you can list lots instead of just single domains. It’s also highly flexible, allowing you to set your own bid increments, buy-it-now option, reserve prices, etc.
BoxCar.com also shuns the typical commission-based fee structure by charging a simple flat fee of $5 per domain name (an introductory price). By charging a flat, up-front fee I suspect the inventory will be void of junk listings.
Other features include:
-Add Facebook or Twitter, Flash or You Tube video to your auction.
-Escrow.com and PayPal integrated
-Boxcar.com/USERNAME profile page (add your Twitter, FB, site, etc.)
-Beta and Preview periods
-RSS feed for all your auctions
-Dynamic Flash widget- updated and embeddable
-Buyers and Sellers Kits
Among the introductory names already on auction are MindGames.com, LegalRecords.com, and SWD.com.
