    I got a couple .com domains I want to sell and I was thinking of using brandbucket since it seems to be all brandable names rather than actual word combinations (think how tumblr isn't a word but a brand while cheapgames is two actual words)

    However it doesn't seem to be anywhere as popular as flippa or sedo, why is that? are there any problems with bb? do they have a history of ripping sellers off?

    I don't like that they put the price rather than letting you choose one, also the $10 they charge to list your site are reimbursable in case it doesn't sells?

    Thanks

    Selling domain names is a tricky subject. They will only sell for as much as somebody is willing to pay for it. And they only usually sell when there is someone developing a project with a very similar name or if it's the exact name match. Best chance would be to put it on Flippa to start!

    The problem is that as I mentioned its not a very SEO-friendly .com but a brandable name and brandbucket seems to be better for those

    As for the price they put one and afaik there is no bidding, or did I read that wrong?

    Yes i have few in Brandbucket. They claim to be one of the biggest within brandable domain market. Their policy is pretty strict. I never sold any. Its super tricky with brand domains. Its a long term strategy. You have to give 4-5 yrs of time span for a sale. For brandable domain its usually for the developer so I wudnt worry about any seo

    I would try BB and Namerific. Like I said before you cant expect it to sell brandables overnight. Its for the long haul.

    BB is strict they want exclusive listing. But Namerific I think has no obligation.

    Either way gotta be patient
