    Safest selling method?

    Just wondering whats the safest way to sell a domain. I know there is a bunch of forums, but how do you make sure the other person doesn't rip you off, do a charge back and so on? I am looking to sell a domain, but never done it before, hope someone can help

    Use an escrow service like Escrow . com .... The buyer deposits the funds with escrow, then the seller transfers the domain.. Once the buyer gets confirmation the domain has been transferred, the escrow service is notified and the funds are released to the seller..

    Sedo has an escrow service too. Escrow.com refuses to deal with certain countries, so it might be a necessary option.

    SEDO is good. There are also some forums which allow you to sell domain names, you can register in these forums. Also, you can put a domain for sale page on the website.

    There are several trusted marketplaces for the domain name selling such as SEDO, domaininvest, parked, ebay and forums namepros, dnorum, domainstate.
    In any case when you are selling through those places you will have a commission fee and you need to keep that in mind once selling.

    I suppose you are mixing things up. paypal is payment method. That is not domain name marketplace.
    But if you trust your domain name buyer you can sell your domain name directly.

    I only use Sedo for selling. As for payment method, Paypal is okay if you can deal directly. Just watch out for chargebacks. Document everything as evidence in the case of a chargeback.

    GoDaddy has a domain auction website – The Domain Name After Market – TDNAM.com – that you can sell domains on and they take care of everything for you. A month after the domain is taken care of, transferred, and paid for, they send you a check for the total amount. It is convenient for the buyers too – since they take credit cards for the purchase of the domain.

    Make use of third parties like sedo or flippa.
    It dangerous if you make the transaction own your own.

    Is it correct that if I sell domain from sedo, flippa, or any other domain marketplace, it does not matter where did I register it?

    Escrow . com is the ONLY safest service.
    SEDO is famous for stealing the domains and deals.
    Paypal is not safe for domain deals as it does not protect domain sellings.

    Good luck
