In performing my daily Whois lookups last week, I came across a couple domain names for sale at Aftermarket.com, and I realized I hadn’t heard much from the company since its last live auction at Domain Roundtable. I reached out to Carron Brown to see how things are going and she gave me a couple of updates I want to share with you.
The company has changed its membership tier features since its inception. They have three levels of membership: Basic, Verified and Premium. You can now make an offer on a domain name with the Basic membership level, which wasn’t possible before. You do have to upgrade to a Verified account in order to close the transaction, but for the purpose of negotiations, it’s possible to do them at the Basic level.
In case you’re wondering, the cost of Verified and Premium memberships is just $1.00 and is likely just a way to ensure that you are legit and won’t flake out on an offer.
Carron also let me know that “the listing pages have also been revamped and now have a sleeker look and feel.” Listings now include social media buttons (Facebook, Twitter, Share This) on each page, allowing the seller or other person to let others know about a domain name for sale.
