15% commission on fixed price parked domain

I have a domain name on sedo which is both fixed price and parked and sedo are trying to charge 15% commission on the sale. I think 15% is obscene in any event but surely this is taking the urine.

I thought that if you stated a (fixed) price then you pay a lower rate ?

They have to also be set to "Buy It Now" according to Sedo's pricing page in order to qualify for a 10% commission rate, i.e. fixed, parked AND buy it now!

Thanks Edwin, I suppose this is supposed to explain it.

If the purchase lead has come from upstream (third party) I think 15% may apply.

I could perhaps understand 15% if the name is not parked with them, after all they have provided a base for the sale to originate from and if you don't want to complete the sale you don't have to. However, when the name is directed to sedo, it provides income for them from PPC and a route into there site from potential domain investors, also of course giving them free exposure.
I think 10% can be justified for this, breaking it down to be 5% for the sale and 5% for escrow but !5% to me is a bridge too far.

Established that the rules are.

15% for listing price.
10% for buy it now.

But surely if you put a listing price and the buyer cannot offer less than your listing price, which is the mimimum the offer page will accept, then that's the price you will sell at, so effectively they are confusingly the same thing.
Or am I missing something ?

You can list a price and have the domain set as make offer so negotiation is enabled (the price is a suggestion not a minimum price) or you can list a price and have the domain set to fixed price which enables the customer to buy the domain without negotiation.

So look at www.RetirementApartments.com it's a listing price with a make an offer button but you have to offer the listing price, is that a bit contradictory?
