    Just got an offer from a Chinese at Sedo. $90 for a LLL.in since "this is the market price". Countered with something like $1,700 and then got a new offer of $92...

    I don't think you could even buy the crappiest LLL.in wholesale for $92.

    I suppose negotiation isn't a bad thing, it's the reasons for offering a certain price that gets me.

    The top one makes it sound like the potential buyer is doing you a huge favour by making an offer, even what might be considered a low one.

    So far I haven't had one person attempt to make an offer, they have all paid my asking price - thankfully.

    Your prices are too low?

    I've got many domains with BIN prices set and people will either accept the price or move on.

    You could easily be right, maybe my prices are too low.

    But, there are so many domains on the market now, I have to take a decision on whether to hope for sales of a few 'big ones' or sell for lower amounts but make more sales.

    I'm not the type who will renew domains, to me that would be a waste of money. I'd rather have a faster turnaround of domains and keep the money coming in.

    That way I am happy with the knowledge that if some of my domains do expire, at least it won't be because I asked unrealistic BIN prices.

    Just my way of doing things, but I appreciate that what works for one doesn't always work for someone else.

    Yesterday got a new excuse - "We want the domain only for 1 or 2 years" so can't pay that high

    This was a legitimate end user, who wanted the .co.in domain, they already own the .com for the keyword and keywordindia.com .

    Lease it to them? I've not tried that but could be worth a shot.

    Epik and NameSilo offer payment plans. Epik is best for larger transactions.

    Good way to entice a buyer since most can't afford or won't buy a domain in a lump sum.
