That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
Well you could counter-offer and see what happens. If you think the bidder is losing your time you can aim high, most likely they will cancel after seeing your counter-offer..
Breaking off negociations at once would be too harsh IMO.
From my experience the people who bid low (ie. the min. $60) will not pay your asking price because they are just looking for a bargain - or a steal. Those who throw in $100 or $200 to get the ball rolling are more motivated (for a name worth $$$) and more likely to strike a deal..
So far my experience with Sedo is excellent. Good luck..
Hmmmm maybe you already repped me earlier ? .
Or do you love me too much..
If I do reply I will aim very high as I don't want to sell it yet !!.
That depends if you're cute & sexy.
Get a room!.
Sorry, sometimes I just can't help it...
Dear God, respond..
Nothing is more frustrating to a buyer/seller than a lack of response, and turns folks off from Sedo and buying/selling in general when their money is in limbo..
Especially if you just aren't going to buy/sell, cut it off. End negotiation..
Very Good points Allan - I have just countered very high & hopefully scared them off.
I still wish you could end negotiations WITHOUT having to say a price, This may encourage more serious offers..
You can - So long as you weren't the last to offer/respond, you can cancel any negotiations no longer in a binding (to you) timeframe by clicking on "cancel" under the "details" link -.
At least, it appears to be just that easy, although I haven't actually done it.
If you want to make a $60 offer on one of my domains, or v/v, I'll cancel (or you can cancel) just to make sure..
You can't cancel the FIRST offer at sedo UNLESS you counter with a price - I have tried it before and also emailed sedo about it..
Unless they have changed it in the last couple of months ? .
Just to confirm this is correct - I still don't like it.
I just got another email from sedo about an offer made, they have now included the following info in the email..
"Please note, that you will receive reminder mails about this offer, until you respond and you will need to submit at least one counter before you can cancel the negotiations. This process was designed to ensure a communicative and successful market place.".
Their system is anything but communicative ! IMO.
Well I had a $60 offer for one of my names...I countered with $1000...figured they'd cancel. Then surprise they countered with $65 and asked traffic stats. So there you go, obviously a HostGator reseller. The name is one I just purchased so I only have 2 weeks traffic...I included the info and I countered with $750. (It's an LLLL.com).
I think you should always respond, it's a good business practice...
