In 2013, I made an offer to buy Pulmonology.com via Sedo. Unfortunately, my offer was below the registrant’s expectations, and we were unable to reach a deal. In May of 2016, I received a follow up email from Sedo to let me know the registrant added a BIN price, and in September of 2016, another follow-up email informed me the seller decreased the price. I was not interested.
On Sunday, I received another follow up email from Sedo about the domain name:
“Thank you for your interest in the domain name pulmonology.com.
We would like to inform you of some great news. The owner of the name you are interested in has set a Buy Now price for the name. That means that you have the ability to purchase this domain with no negotiation necessary!
This is the opportunity that you may have been looking for; no pressure, no haggling, and no wondering if your offer will be accepted. Simply agree to the price and the domain is yours.

If you do not wish to receive Buy Now status updates about domains you’ve previously bid on please edit your watchlist settings:”
I clicked the link, and when I saw the price was reasonable, I bought the domain name.
The emails were sent to me because I bid on a domain name. I did not specifically request updates, although I could opt out of them if I preferred. I appreciate this follow-up, and I think it is a good practice for Sedo and its clients. Other than Sedo and Uniregistry, I don’t know if other sales platforms send these follow ups email as prices are added or changed, but I think it would be a good idea if they did.
I am not going to share the price I paid to buy Pulmonology.com, but if it were not for Sedo’s update emails, the domain name would have remained off my radar.
