Make Sure Your Uniregistry Payment Profile is Setup

In March, I published an article with an update email I received from Uniregistry regarding a change to the company’s payments provider. I (wrongly) assumed the update was only necessary for sellers on the Uniregistry Market. In fact, I wrote “I don’t really sell via Uni, so I don’t think I am going to touch anything.”

Over the weekend, I was looking at my Uniregistry parking stats and I realized it had been quite some time since I received a PPC earnings payout. In fact, the end of February was the last time I noted a PayPal payment from Uniregistry for my pay per click advertising revenue.

Uniregistry: “Change your Market Payout Profile”

I received an “Action Required” email from Uniregistry this morning, and I want to pass the message along to people who might simply disregard it. According to the email, Uni (now a GoDaddy brand) has changed its payment processor in the Uniregistry Market. Uniregistry is now using Tipalti for its Market payments. As a result, customers are required to update their payment settings in order to get paid.

I have no idea how long a payment update takes to process, so this is something Uni Market customers will want to address before their next sale to avoid delays. I don’t really sell via Uni, so I don’t think I am going to touch anything. It’s unfortunate that GoDaddy / Afternic customers can’t simply select the current settings they have since it’s essentially the same parent company.

On a totally unrelated note, it’s a bit peculiar that the logo branding in the email and on-site is “Uni” but all of the messaging is “Uniregistry.” In my non-expert opinion, they should pick a brand name and stick to it.

Here’s the email I received this morning:

Conflicts Between Uniregistry and Afternic

Earlier this month, I wrote about how domain names added to Uniregistry were being listed for sale via Afternic. This served as a bit of a warning to people who may have priced a name for a prospective buyer at Uniregistry and now that price could possibly be listed as a BIN price at Afternic. It could be problematic for someone who doesn’t regularly update prices at Uniregistry.

Although I do not price my names at Uniregistry, I have run into an issue where domain names I own and add to my Uniregistry parking account then conflict when I try to add them to Afternic. I will share an example with you.

Uniregistry Market Names Merged Into Afternic

If you have domain names listed for sale in your Uniregistry Market account, they may have been added to Afternic. This is notable and important to follow because sellers need to ensure their Uniregistry Market names and prices are updated to current market prices and availability.

This morning, I was tracking down a domain name I owned and sold on a payment plan via Escrow.com. When I was checking the Whois record, I noticed the DomainTools message stating, “This domain is listed for sale at one of our partner sites.” I clicked the link and was taken to a for sale page at Afternic indicating the domain name was actively listed for sale on the Afternic platform.

Uniregistry Fixes Sales Banner Issue

On Tuesday, I noticed something peculiar on a domain name I have parked at Uniregistry but do not have listed for sale. At some point, I believe, there was a change made that essentially rendered the “not for sale” option useless. Customers not only had to choose that option, but they needed to also select “no” under the sales banner option, or the domain name would still show the sales banner.
