    I know there's a sticky thread but, nice to know things haven't changed

    A recent 3 character.net sale. All concluded between me and the enquirer - that was until, unknowingly he/she asked Sedo to handle the transfer. :evil:

    Now i've learnt why the recent poster for a free PDF 'creating' prog was here at 'Acorn' ( thanks)... Is it a new hoop or what ???

    Please supply an invoice (Faxed ???) or emailed in PDF format only ?? to comply with the sales criteria.

    I'm going to give credit to Julian (my assigned sales advisor) at SEDO for acting and supplying updates in the most comprehensive of fashion. well done mate

    He talks like hes been through this unnecessary loop a thousand times. But what has striked me is just how unknowing most occasional domain sellers might be of this "Strip search" approach to domain selling may be. (And scared off)

    The real trouble with SEDO is though. Beliving that it is only a Sedo "perceived" World out there = I think that's something stickly German, what with that an the recent Euro crisis = No war + Influential control by stealth :cool:

    that's nothing new, you only have to supply one if the buyer asks ;)

    and a quick tip for Mac owners who don't have a pdf maker.

    Simply go to >file >print> output your document as pdf. Job done.

    In any sale, I think it should be the sellers prerogative if an invoice will be supplied or not. A purchase agreement should be satisfactory.

    I agree with you foz - and that should come (from) and with any 'buyers chosen' intermediate

    I did ask Sedo for an opt out option for sellers, so that the buyer couldn't select "invoice required". I believe most buyers select because its there. Its just a time waster for sellers. If Sedo want it they should pay sellers their time to produce it or at least automate it so the seller can just add a VAT number and press a button.

    What is Sedo's response if you say you wont provide them with an invoice?

    Its evidently still a buyers option. Even when a seller shows VAT not applicable - Sedo did link the sale to my SEDO account +1

    Go through Vat procedure = -1

    Guess I could go through the standard 3,000 Year Sedo payment delay to find out. :p

    Don't forget my x,xxx buyer is a confirmed payer - But In the mean time I'd be happy to play around with somebody elses money anyday :shock:

    there's an even easier way to make a pdf Bailey

    I take it you have a gmail account or google webmaster account/ as they are all in one bundle now once logged in

    https://accounts.google.com/Service...llowup=http://docs.google.com/&ltmpl=homepage

    nab a free sample from them, they have example invoices etc

    fill in, choose format, pdf etc

    email to yourself in gmail account
    download and resend

    piece of proverbial :D

    NB: i got asked for one once by sedo buyer once sale had completed and i got paid
    needless to say, they are still waiting for it :D
