    I prefer as a seller to not list prices, but I know it's unfair. I think these are good changes and will make the marketplace much more effective.

    Please don't tell me this is somehow good for a seller, because it isn't. If you as a seller want to list a price to save time, fine. But when I sell something I want to maximize my return as much as possible and the way to do that is not listing a price. That is sales 101. This is not my forum and I will of course follow whatever the acceptable guidelines are but calling not putting a price in a thread ridiculous is laughable.
    My thoughts exactly which is why I dislike that. This rule makes it pro-buyer and anti-seller. When you list up a price as your minimum offer, you open the doors for the people on this forum to offer you just that. It's almost exactly like labeling a BIN because the only way you're going to get more is if someone bids against whoever offers that.

    I'm a buyer and seller, sold more than I've ever bought lol. This is not anti seller IMO.

    Again this eliminates the "will take offers of "$xxx" or $xx,xxx" because that is vague as hell. It will also eliminate tons of time wasting time of both sides. Setting a Min Offer is much different than setting a BIN offer. At least with a min offer people will have an idea as to the potential asking price. I think this evens everything out a bit more. If you are worried you will not get the price you want, make sure you don't sell it for less than you want.

    We all understood that this change would not be loved by everyone, but regardless this is more even than it was and solves some issues. Like I said, I do more selling here than buying, but I think this is fair overall.

    Prop:

    As for the sign thing, that isn't new. That has been in place all along.

    Sorry to everyone if this is starting to derail the thread-

    But I don't quite understand why you think that listing a price automatically sets up to recieve a lower price? Why not just set it higher?

    Set a price and simply stick ---> OBO (or best offer) next to it. How hard is that? List a price (a little higher if need be) then accept or decline offers that come in.

    This is really blowing this out of proportion for nothing. The only thing hiding your price does is prolong the whole process. If someone low balls you with an offer, more often then not you will tell them what the min you are looking for is, right??? All the rule does is eliminate half the emails you say "no" to....

    Its really not that hard-

    See, I get that for sites. Sites have aspects that you can put a value to it. Revenue contributes to that. However, for domains, I always find those hard to price as I am sure others do as well. Can this be put in place for everything that isn't just a domain name? Offers are still the best way to value out what a domain is worth, not setting a minimum offer. A lot of people aren't going to know what the heck their domains are worth let alone be able to figure out what they want for them.

    The issue isn't that we want to hide our prices, the issue is that we're unsure of what something is worth which is why offers are asked for instead of a set price. I think that's where the confusion is in all this.

    Like I said, we all as a team discussed this and decided this would be the best way to handle things until we get a real system in place. I'm a seller too, I can see both sides of it. In a perfect world everyone would be happy. I totally understand where you are coming from, but we had to put some guidelines in place.

    Thanks for understanding

    Indeed. In my line of work, I know it's impossible to please both sides. I guess it's just something we'll have to adjust to.
