    What does this mean:

    Your bid does not meet the minimum bid amount; however you will be included in the auction should it start. At least one backorder must meet the minimum bid for an auction to start; however, the domain will only be sold if the minimum bid amount is met or exceeded once the auction starts.

    Where do they get this min amount from? What if no one decides to pay it? These companies are getting shittier and shittier. Greedy assholes.

    Isn't it stated somewhere there? With Namejet it's mostly $69 in order to get to a private auction.

    Wonder what happens if no one bids it? It's an okay domain, nothing amazing. DA 25, only three really good links and a bunch of decent links. not sure where they decide this minimum bid from.

    Huge chance they got a better offer from somewhere else and decided to change it on the run. It's not anything new with them.

    Man, so sketchy.
    I have about 100 domains on back order from about five years ago with Snapnames. Few years ago I picked up a good 10+ amazing ones in my niche. Now I get the odd email "Your domain xxxx is ready to be purchased for $x,xxx". How shady can you get.

    Exactly this! And I believe they have even some friggin automatic payments set up, so if I registered a fake email for PBN purposes, I can get charged 2 years later and then pondering where the fuck did that come from. I decided to stick purely with Godaddy. They are cunts as well, but at least this kind of shit is not happening with them.
