Completing A Transaction On Uniregistry Market

Completing a transaction on Uniregistry Market


It was fast and easy, but pay attention to fees to withdraw your funds.

uniregistry-logoI use a number of marketplaces to sell domain names. About a third of my portfolio is listed with landing pages on Uniregistry Market, formerly known as Domain Name Sales.

I self-broker my inquiries on Uniregistry. I also typically just start an transaction rather than use Uniregistry’s marketplace checkout.

On a recent sale, I decided to offer the Uniregistry checkout to the customer. After all, I imagine customers will get confused if suddenly they are sent to an outside service to complete the deal. (There is an integration with Uniregistry.)

The transaction happened really fast. The customer paid by a credit card. Uniregistry will only accept credit cards and PayPal if the domain is subsequently transferred to Uniregistry, otherwise, a wire is required. Keeping the domain at Uniregistry locks it down for 60 days, reducing the likelihood of a chargeback.

Uniregistry charges 6.88% on transactions under $5,000 when the customer pays with a credit card. This is in line with Payoneer, a new entrant into domain escrow, charges a lower price, but I’m not sure what fees they add for credit card payments (which are limited to $2,000).
