Thanks for keeping us informed Linda.

I think that now the minimum sales commissions
on Sedo are decent.

I find anyway quite expensive the 39 a month to
have a domain featured.

I tested the normal listing for a good domain in
german (Sedo is very popular in Germany) but it is
impossible to have it viewed without featuring it.

Yes, this is surely a welcome move from Sedo. Low-value domains now stand a chance of being sold in Sedo. Before this, the $100 minimum comission is hurting sales of low-value domains. Example, if you want $50 for your domain, you have to price it at $150(to cover for the Sedo charges). But this price will certainly shun away prospective buyers, assuming that the domain is really worth only in the $50-100 range.

And Sedo has not make it public yet. But they will implement a "Parking Loyalty" program. If the sold domain is parked at Sedo, there will be no minimum comission fee. Only 10% across the board, regardless of amount of sale.
