The Selling Process
Selling Domains through the CentralNic Reseller Aftermarket System is currently only available for Sedo. After domains have been listed for sale, this section covers to actual selling process. In general there are two different types of sale:
- Direct Sale: Refers to a listing of a domain using listingtype=buy_now. Directly processes the sale as soon as a valid bid is received.
- Bidding: By setting up a listing of a domain as bidding, using listingtype=make_offer, you will receive bids as BID_INCOMING events. The system gives full flexibility to react individually to every received bid, by accepting or denying the offer, or make a counter offer, if you’re not satisfied with the received bid.
