    Out of the 7,466 domain listings, only 5 of the listings have a bid.
    Out of the 6,232 website listings, 15 of the listings have a bid.

    So if you list your domain there, you have a 00.067% chance of receiving a bid! :)

    Nothing surprises me there they died centuries ago...

    Years ago you could make fortunes there, but times have changed...

    Yeah i agree, it's long time ago you could sell domains there. Now there are almost no bidders, it's a really dead marketplace. :)

    Damn sounds like I better head over there to pick up some sites. Should be a buyer's market with that many listings and no bids.

    You are so wrong. First, you are looking at the wrong place, most people hang at the forum side of the BST, not the new marketplace. Second, many people don't bother with DPs bidding system so they just PM the seller, they really don't want to show their identities that they're buying.

    DP is not dead, for bother the buyer and seller base. However things are way underpriced there which benefits the buyers mostly.

    I just listed 2 domains this week and one of them sold. A lot of the "Buy it Now" ones will not have bids because they are taken down as soon as they are sold.

    Shhhh, you're letting the cat out of the bag.

    But, you're right. I've purchased many sites there and I don't think I've placed a single bid ever. Just PM, negotiate and purchase. It is a buyer's market over there if you know how to do your research.

    I buy there often. Mostly just pm and not always in the marketplace. Besides a lot of the stuff with no bids are junk anyway
