How can anyone afford to sell ‘lower value’ domains via SEDO?
As domainers we know that not every sale is going to be worth mega bucks, in fact a consistent stream of smaller sales is very important revenue stream to many domain investors.
On a £100 domain sale you will make just £46 after SEDO fees.
Lets say you make 10x£100 domain sales a year.
So based on SEDO fees: £1000 minus £520 SEDO Fee = £480 over 50% of your profit down the drain.🙁
Don’t forget, after this you probably need to take off another hefty % for the tax man. In the UK that’s 20%, so minus £96 = £384 take home from £1000 worth of domain sales, when the figure could have been £904! Lets look at that again – £904 take home or £384 take home
