    Hi
    does anyone know about sedo's new rules on sales through partner websites.
    and does the 20% commission apply retrospectively to a name say listed 15 years ago.

    Yes the customer service is fantastic and the landing pages are clean and user friendly. Fees are 9% + VAT(21%) if they introduce the buyer or 5% + VAT if you refer the buyer. There are some hidden charges to both the buyer and seller if the sale is above £2,000 if you use a certain payment/pay-out type.

    Sedo's double-commission structure is a disgrace, but not new. You wouldn't pay ebay a double commission just because your auction was won by someone referred through an affiliate link. Sedo should pay affiliates out of their own commission, not screw domain sellers on fixed price listings, where we should be entitled to know, before the sale completes, exactly how much we will receive net.

    To avoid being stung. only listing domains on Sedo as 'make offer'. Then, when you get a bite, you can see if the buyer came from an affiliate (20%) & either up the price to compensate (& risk losing the sale) or try to subtly direct them elsewhere. You will also avoid rewarding any affiliates who are cookie stuffing.

    Arguing the toss after a sale has been made is unlikely to be fruitful, as at some point your friend will have agreed to one of those "by continuing to use this website you agree to being f_cked by our new price list" type messages.

    Let us know how Dan compares to Sedo, once you are established there.
