    Is it possible to see what the reserve is on a domain being auctioned at Netfleet?

    :confused:

    It would save a whole lot of wasted bids, if you wish to go over or match the reserve ...... you can. I think better for seller and buyer as a whole

    Maybe another option - like with propoerty is that the Seller could suggest an Opening Bid - it may be lower than Reserve, but at least help to kick things off (if there is ever going to be genuine interest)

    I don't think there is many sellers who would like the idea. For the sellers who want to (translation: nobody), they could just add it to the listing text or post it here.

    Seems like Alex who opened the thread would like to know, i feel the same. The buyers are also part of the equation of the domain selling process at netfleet

    Of course buyers would like to know.

    How about this, buyers can see the reserve and sellers get to see what buyers have set their proxies at? That way everyone knows the best price someone can do a deal at.

    If the sales price was not acheived perhaps the closest proxy could be contacted by the seller ? Although i do like the idea of keeping it simple and straight forwards.

    I personally have never auctioned a domain off so am very new to it from a seller perspective. This is really the first time I have been after one on NetFleet

    Would prefer if a reserve is set it should be indicated. Think this would make more sense for NetFleet as well. All I am gonna do now is contact seller after the fact to see what their asking price is.

    You put your best bid and you'll find out if you reach reserve or not. If you don't it is most likely that you won't bid more or will end up overpaying for the domain. I don't see how this will affect your bidding and what benefit will give you to know the reserve.

    If the reserve is higher than he wants to spend he can look elsewhere

    this conversation keeps coming up time and time again but just with a new title for the thread.

    Chris C. has been at this subject for a long time and has bought up some good points which i will try to get right so I will speak for myself not Chris C whilst using his knowledge :)

    1) if someone is just $1 under reserve then why can't there be mediation?
    2) you have to bid your best price but if you are close why can't we have access to some form of contact as a secondary step to completion ? ( on that point i posted "they had their chance and thats that" but now i think we need to go into a more realestate market place. NO auction for a house lets a "close bidder" leave !

    3) NF is losing out big time, they know who is bidding and they know who JUST missed out on both sides.

    4) its not worth NF's fee to stuff around with this if its a $400 domain

    and to hold my post to the thread, there are no auctions that i know of that give you the reserve? its called BUY IT NOW - X
