    Hi all,

    Just to say DM now requires one click email verification before an offer is submitted. After user has verified, they are returned to the domain, the fields are automatically populated and the offer submitted.

    The buyer only need do this one time on the system. This should create a more transparent and trusted sale process for both seller and buyer and also cutting spam right down.

    I'm not keen on having an email validation process. I prefer making any sale process as low friction as possible.

    Is this optional?

    Further to that, those of you who use Uniregistry may not know that enquiries with unverified email addresses languish in your archive folder without you receiving any alerts about them.

    Unfortuately not. Due to the amout of spam and tyre kickers. I don't think it's an issue. If the buyer is serious they will make one click to verify.

    Unfortunately your verification email might go straight to their spam folder, especially at the big webmail providers (Gmail, Hotmail etc.) whereas a direct email from seller to buyer might not. (That's not to impugn your company for one second - any entity that sends large volumes of broadly similar emails faces exactly the same issue)

    Yes perhaps it might but I've never had an issue. Consider the SEDO process where the poor buyer has to complete a much more lengthy signup registration to make an offer. We also have to consider the fact that (although loathed by many), SEDO has been a long term player in the domain name sales industry and they stick to a registration process, along with all the long term main players afternic.com, buydomains.com, auctions.godaddy.com, flippa.com to name but a few.

    I appreciate the fact domainers want maximum freedom on in bounds but I think any serious buyer with half a brain would have the gumption to check their inbox and spam especially as it tells them to do this before the offer is submitted, on top of the fact the landing page has the domain contact details available.

    What do you or the domain seller gain by enforcing verification?

    Does the offer still show up in the dashboard if the buyer doesn't verify?
