    If the fact you are asking the buyer to pay the transfer fee is putting off a sale at that level when you will net a 995pound profit on a 5pound investment then why not absorb the 30pounds into your cost of sale and pay it for them? A 965pound profit on a 35pound investment is still pretty good business.

    Why is it the cost recovery 30pounds you assume to be wrong rather than the additional 30pounds profiteering you make yourself? :p ;)

    When it's a £30 domain sale, the £30 transfer fee is off putting, that's what I was trying to say.

    mmmmmmmmm.... that's an interesting perspective and a fair point, which seems to highlight an anomaly in the cost recovery 'logic'. I'll get back to you on that one.
