Premium Listings can also sell within Go Daddy Auctions — and at a lower commission.
I recently received a sale notice for one of the domains I listed at Go Daddy as a Premium Listing.
I assumed it was a standard sale through Go Daddy’s registration path. But a couple days later I got another email and realized the sale was actually on the Go Daddy Auctions site. It was still a fixed price sale based on my Premium Listing price, but occurred through the auction platform.
As a result I paid a mere 5% commission on the $400 sale rather than 30%. That’s an extra $100 in my pocket. I also got the payment faster than on a Premium Listing sale.
Sure, I had to manually transfer the domain to the buyer’s account instead of the “instant transfer” that comes along with Premium Listing sales. But since it was an internal transfer at Go Daddy it was a breeze.
So count this as another perk of Go Daddy Premium Listings — added exposure for your fixed price domains on Go Daddy Auctions.
