Company seeks market share with low commissions.
Domain name registrar Sav has launched a new marketplace for domain investors to sell domains through for-sale landing pages.
The company has two key selling points for its marketplace: low commissions and an optimized lander.
Sav charges just 4% of the sales price, effectively giving the service away for free when you consider credit card payment processing fees. Compare this to 7.5% for Squadhelp and 9% for DAN.com. (It’s worth noting that neither Squadhelp nor Sav currently protect against chargebacks. Sav founder Anthos Chrysanthou said the company is looking to guarantee payments in the future.)
Sav says it tested landers across hundreds of thousands of domains and one (pictured) stood out from the rest of the pack in terms of conversion rates.
Domain investors need to apply to join the beta. I signed up today to test it and found it very simple to use. Note that all domains must be priced.
Sav has made inroads into the domain investor community since launching last year. Key selling points include low registration fees, free SSL, and no-fee backordering. The low-commission sales option should help it attract more domain name investors.
