    I hope everyone has noticed our current catch rates!

    Currently winning all contested domains, so a 100% catch rate on contested names.

    So if you are blind bidding somewhere else, time to revisit drop.com.au again, since most names are being picked up for $25
    So a great time to catch those gems.

    Cheers

    Just wish Drop was user-friendly - it's such a difficult interface.

    You may want to look at your aftermarket platform, charge a reasonable commission of 5% and promote it for people to buy and sell more widely. More eyes will visit the site, take part in the drops, aftermarket and overall give you more money and support stimulating growth and positivity.

    Yes working on the aftermarket as well. A reasonable and realistic commission is closer to 15% though. Merchant fees are upto 3.95%, escrow bank fees take a bit as well and then you need to factor in development costs, marketing, support and all the admin that goes with it. Until the volumes grow the rate can then be evaluated, but at 5% the aftermarket place would be making a loss. So that is not viable.

    Do you still show the domains caught for the day? That's something I also enjoyed looking at, and learn something in the process.
    While I do like filter options on the daily auction page, some options never seem to work, and some only work sometimes.

    Not yet but that is planned to be put back in. So will definitely be added back in. Right now most names are going for $25. So a great time to place bids.

    Cheers
