    Default New Marketplace Post requirements - Please Read

    New Marketplace Post requirements

    In order to keep the market place clean and improve the current system we have, we all felt some general posting requirements are needed. In the near future we will have a nice automated system in place which will require minimum offer amounts and a required amount of information about the domains, websites, or ad space being sold.

    At a minimum your post must have the following info:

    For Domains:

    * Minimum offer
    * Registrar
    * Age


    For websites:

    1. Minimum Offer
    2. Age
    3. Indexed?
    4. # of Pages
    5. General Type (Bonus, Rakeback, News, etc)
    6. Where it is hosted
    7. What platform (php, html, CMS, WP, etc)


    Ad Space

    * Age of Site
    * PR of Site
    * Price of Links



    Of course you still must comply with the required post minimum rules of having at least 30 posts before you can start a sales thread, and you must have a website you own in your signature.

    Again, this should help all of us save time form replying or sending multiple PM's to buyers and seller. These rules will be strictly enforced and if you do not meet the information requirements, your post will be removed.


    Thanks,

    PAL Mod Team

    Min offer and number of pages for sites, while I think is nice, isn't always an available things for some people.

    For min offer, can we still format it as XXX range type deal? And for number of pages, can we post stuff such as 20+ pages?

    Would you mind sharing the thought process behind requiring a minimum offer on domains please? I can see where this would be helpful to buyers but it is terrible for sellers. If that is the purpose, that is fine. I don't like it.

    Also, if someone wants to buy a domain they can look in whois to see where it is registered and how long it has been, but this isn't a big deal either way.

    Its pretty simple. Everyone knows what they wont accept. If your selling a domain and it has xxx value and you refuse to place a BIN than its pretty easy to say I will not be looking at offers under this amount.

    This is to stop people from wasting each others time. There is an increase in the number of people who post with "Ive got a site to sell PM me" "Im selling links..pm for price and info"

    Its ridiculous to not post at least a bit of info to potential buyers so they know whether or not its within their budget and you as a seller dont have to reply with a bunch of no sorry Im expecting this, no sorry im expecting this.

    Yeah its simple, we have had a number of complaints from people about info not being posted in sales threads. I think many of us are tied of these "PM with an offer" threads and honestly they are time wasting.

    Seriously, if you are really looking to sell something, you should have an idea of what the minimum offer should be. Again, that is not a BIN

    We are not saying you need to put a BIN price on it, but put your minimum offer, not $xxx etc. That is too vague.

    As I said in the OP, soon there will be a system in place that will require most of this info. Obviously "number of pages" and such isn't always easy to do, but take a guess.

    So it is for the buyers, the sellers be damned?

    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.

    How is that sales 101? Do you walk into a dealership and make offers not knowing where to start? No, they list a price and you talk them down until you are ready to buy. If not, you walk out.

    If you are looking to make the most money possible, why not list the price for a bit higher than what you are looking to get and then take the "best offer." You will probably walk away with what you were looking to get in the first place. And as everyone else has mentioned, you are sure to save time (which = $$) not having to deal with multiple pm's and emails.

    And as dumb/ignorant as this may sound, if you were to list something for $xxx I would probably offer you $100. Why would I offer any more than that?

    If it wasn't enough, you would then proceed to tell me what the minimum you are looking for is, which is no different (other than time saved) than listing it in your post.
