One of the most common topics or posts on a domain forum is someone is looking to buy domain names at the mysterious “reseller or wholesale” price.
There are two elements I would like to discuss, the psychology or method behind using the term, and secondly what are these prices?
I don’t think a lot of people have any clue, requests will include
Looking for 4L (CVCV), 3L , One word , Dictionary word
two word(age more then 5 year )
Reseller Pricing please . Budget $500 to $1,000.
Some are people looking for brandables at reseller pricing and $30 budget. Wait What?
Ok what is the reseller price on a 3L.com, most owners if not all would laugh, they own a very liquid, in demand category of domain names. But the budget is $500 to $1,000, well that is certainly not the reseller pricing on 3L.com, you can find that price by looking at the sales prices on NameJet where domain investors list their 3L.coms and for the most part other domain investors buy them.
Look you can have any budget you like, but understand what you are really saying, “I don’t have a lot of money and hope you don’t know the market and will sell me a $1 for a nickel.” Because owners of 3L.com, CVCV.com and one word .coms even if desperate can get far more than what you are offering.
The request above is commonplace, many people keep looking for quality domain names and then throwing in the “reseller pricing” tag.
After the specific categories where supply is limited, we get the reseller price request on brandables or two word .coms, see it every day.
First off, if I ask 10 people to define what is a brandable? I get 10 different answers. Secondly the reseller pricing on two word .coms? Well that is too broad. Stock Market is two words, what is the reseller pricing on that? How about Office Supplies? Happy Donkey? Good Stuff? The mention of reseller pricing is too ambiguous.
These are prices that have no universal definition, the true reseller prices are the names that sell at NameJet, GoDaddy and DropCatch.
But these people with these reseller requests don’t want to go there because I am willing to bet they think those prices are too high. There are a lot of people looking for good sounding, easy to pronounce 5L.com and they will have a budget of up to $30.
Respo.com just sold at DropCatch and most likely purchased by a domain investor for $2,663.
Sure there will always be people looking to sell cheap, just move names they are tired of, but no one ever grows tired of their 3L,CVCV and one word .coms.
So give your opinions on what you think reseller pricing is on the following:
4L.com (CVCV and other pronounceable types)
1 word, dictionary .com
