One of the things I like about using Dan.com to sell domain names is its automated transfer process. When I sell a domain name via Dan, they immediately asked me if I would like to push the domain name to their account at GoDaddy or send them the authorization code for an outbound transfer to their preferred registrar. It helps expedite transfers and deal closings since we don’t have to wait for a transfer agent to start the transfer manually.
Occasionally when I select the transfer option, instead of initiating the transfer to its preferred registrar, Dan will send the authorization code to the buyer who has already paid. In doing this, the buyer needs to start the transfer process on his or her own rather than having Dan start the transfer. This can cause a bit of lag time if the buyer is slow to initiate the transfer.
