Make Offer or Fixed Price?


Recommended Posts

As a buyer, which encourages you to buy a domain more, make offer or fixed price? Speak only from personal buying experiences please.

Personally I just buy the domaine name just like that. As soon as I know I want it I get it. Plain and simple.

 

Price doesn't really affect me and doesn't discourage me from buying it.

I prefer a fixed price. I still feel like I can negotiate, like legalize said, and offer another price anyway. With "make an offer," though, I never know what I should actually pitch first. If they accept immediately, I feel like I offered too high to start....but if I offer too low, then they may never respond either.

I generally try to ask for offers for my domain names, but I know that in reality a potential buyer will ask for a price right off the start. I've bought and sold 3 figure ($xxx) domains and they all required a fixed price from both ends. I'd never make an offer without having a clue where the seller values his domain name.

Ditto for me. The problem is getting a price from the owner, in my experience. I tried to buy an awesome domain name a couple of months ago but the guy who owned it was such a flake that it all fell through - he couldn't come up with a price, had no clue whether he wanted to sell and considered it too much effort to move an empty WP install to another domain. Yeesh. Maybe I'll try him again some time and push harder. :D

Hahah that's when it's time to make an offer he can't say no to. That should 'motivate' him ;)
