- What is the "Domain Sale" process for your Marketplace?
Our Marketplace has many domains listed for sale. Our "Domain Sale" process is structured to help potential buyers purchase the domain they want immediately without the hassle of contacting the seller directly. This benefits the seller too since it helps them sell more domains with less work. Here's how it works: A seller lists a domain for sale at a specific price in our Marketplace. An interested buyer sees this domain for sale and decides to buy it. He/she adds the domain to their shopping cart, checks out, and submits payment. Our system automatically moves the domain to the buyer's Dynadot account so they can use the domain immediately. The domain will stay on a "Buy Lock" status for 30 days. This prevents the buyer from moving the domain to another Dynadot account or transferring the domain to another domain registrar. The sale proceeds are credited to the seller's Dynadot account (minus a 5% Marketplace listing fee) after the processing period ends. NOTE: The processing period will take 6-10 days. The Marketplace listing fee is 5% of the listing price. There is no minimum listing fee at this time. The sale proceeds are credited as Dynadot account credit, but can be paid out on request.

- What is a backorder (drop catch)?
After a domain expires and passes its renewal grace period and redemption period, the domain is "dropped" or re-released to the public for registration. Before it is re-released, you can use a drop catch or backorder service to place a request to register the dropping domain. Then, the backorder service will attempt to register the domain for you as soon as it drops. Most domains are dropped from the central registry 75 days after their expiration date. Dynadot Backorders If a domain receives one or more backorder requests, our drops system will try to catch it for you. If we are successful and you were the only backorder request, an order will be created for you and the domain will be placed into your account after the order is completed. If there are multiple backorder requests, there will be a backorder auction for the domain. To place a domain backorder request with us, the following is required: You must have recent order history with Dynadot. This means either having a balance of, or making a payment, that meets the minimum amounts listed below. If you are new to Dynadot, the easiest way to fulfill this requirement is by creating a prepay order. You must not be banned from our auctions.
