Dan.com announced a partnership with Media Options that will allow Dan sellers to work with Media Options to negotiate a deal on their behalf. The news was sent to Dan.com customers this morning, and a press release with details about the partnership was published this morning.
Sellers on Dan.com can now hand off their domain name sales negotiation to Media Options within their Dan.com transaction window. I looked at my account, and the enable button is available for me to click allowing Media Options to take over the negotiation. I can see this being beneficial to me on a high leverage negotiation or when I do not have the time to fully engage with a buyer.
Dan.com shared a short video showing how the process works and how people can utilize Media Options brokerage services for their negotiation:
I asked Dan.com CEO Reza Sardeha for some more information about how this will work for sellers. When Media Options successfully negotiate a deal, the commission fee is 20%. Media Options has the ability to accept or reject a negotiation request. If they feel the price range set by the domain owner is too high, they can submit a counter proposal for the owner to consider or reject. Sellers who hand off leads to Media Options will not be able to see the negotiation transpire but will be kept up to date. Once a negotiation is assigned to Media Options, it is their lead. If the negotiation isn’t successful, the lead will be returned to the seller.
if you have any questions or need clarification on anything, reach out directly to Dan.com to ask. You may post questions in the comments, too, if you would like. I understand the Dan.com Terms and Conditions was updated and that likely has additional details about this.
