Aftermarket domains that include an installment payment plan allow for full payment at purchase or monthly installment payments. If the payment plan is selected, you'll select the number of monthly installments you wish to pay, up to the maximum amount set by the seller. Once finalized, a 15% down payment is required along with the first monthly installment payment to kick off the plan.

Payment Plan Specifics

Our payment plan is designed to make our aftermarket more accessible and affordable. The option to pay in installments is available on select marketplace, user auction, expired domain auction, and backorder auction listings, identified by the 'Pay in Installments' option found on some individual listings. To learn how to pay in installments, please visit our help page.

Installment Period: Between 2 and 12 months.

Down Payment: 15% at purchase.

Minimum Purchase Price: $100

Payment Defaults:
3 days without payment: Domain disabled and on hold.
14 days without payment: Domain returns to seller.

Buyer's Lock

With the initial down payment made, the domain is placed in the buyer's account under a "buy lock", allowing DNS adjustments but preventing transfers. This lock remains in place until 30 days after the installment plan payment has been completed.

Installment Period

Payment plans range from 2 to 12 months, with the maximum number of months determined by the seller that lists the domain. When a buyer decides to pay using the payment plan, they'll select between 2 and the maximum number of months selected by the seller, which determines the total number of installment payments required.

Down Payment

To begin the payment plan, the buyer must put a 15% down payment on the domain name. This 15% payment is used towards paying off the installment plan. It is non-refundable. There is no additional fee when choosing to pay by installment.

Dynadot Commissions

Our aftermarket listings have a commission fee and, with our payment plan, that commission is deducted from the initial payment.

Minimum Purchase Price

Domains must be $100 USD minimum to be eligible to use our payment plan. Domains under this amount cannot utilize payment installments.

Payment Defaults

If a payment issue occurs during a month of the payment plan, buyers have 3 days after payment due date to pay for that monthly installment. Missing this deadline will disable the domain and put it on hold under the buyer's account. 14 days after the initial missed payment date, the domain will be pushed back to the seller's account. All payments made are non-refundable and the seller keeps all proceeds up until this point.

Domain Renewal

For sellers, the number of maximum installment months selectable when listing a domain is impacted by the domain's expiration date. The maximum number of installments is one month less than the domain's expiration date, to a maximum of 12 months total. For example, if the domain expires in 3 months, 2 months is the maximum number of installments available to be selected. To allow more monthly installments for buyers, consider renewing your domain prior to listing as additional months may increase your chance of selling.
