There are a number of websites that allow domain investors to list their domain names for sale. This morning, someone asked me about selling domain names on multiple platforms.
@DInvesting Hey Elliot – Is it possible to sell my domain name on multiple platforms? I listed it on GD last Fiday but haven't received any responses.

It is possible to list domain names for sale on more than one platform at the same time. I think many people do this to optimize their chances of selling a domain name. Afternic and Sedo both have end user reach via registrar partners.
I do not like to list domain names for sale on more than one platform though. I am too concerned about accidentally selling a name to different people on different platforms at the same time, putting me in a difficult predicament where I can not fulfill both deals. In addition, having listings on multiple platforms means I need to keep prices updated and listings accurate in more than one place.
If someone wants to list on more than one platform, that is permissible but they need to be diligent about updating listings. It is important to remove sold or expired listings. One option for people listing on multiple platforms is to have BIN prices on one platform but make offer listings on the other. This would give added exposure with the risk of a double sale or selling a domain name the person no longer owns.
Even though I have most of my names listed for sale via Afternic, the majority of my sales are closed privately. Most people still inquire after visiting the landing page or clicking the “for sale” link on a parked page. For me, the landing page is an important marketing tool to sell my domain names.
I have somewhere around 1,000 domain names in my portfolio. Depending on the size of other portfolios as well as the diligence of the owner and/or the management tools they use, it may be more or less feasible to list on multiple platforms. For me thigh, having BIN prices on one platform works best.
