    15% on $100,000 is way too high a commission. It should be more in line with real estate.

    We won’t list high end inventory with those fees.

    Noticed that increase the other day.
    But my existing domains listed above $50k still say No (Requires Submission) for Fast Transfer.
    “In Standard Network but not opted in.
    Your domain may be eligible for fast-transfer please contact customer service for help with opting in to fast-transfer.”

    Same thing happened to my account when Afternic increased the amount to $25k, then to $50k.
    I had to contact customer service each time to get opted-in for the new fast transfer limit.

      Afternic staff didn’t know about the new fast transfer Increase to $100k when i contacted them the other day.
      They didn’t know last time either or the time before that.
