As a new member of this forum, I would like to seek advice from experienced domain flipping veterans regarding a side project that I have been working on. I have created a website where I intend to sell some of my domains directly to small businesses and startups at competitive prices. Though not all the domains on the site are of high value, I believe I have some valuable ones.

I plan to add more of my inventory to the site gradually over the next few months (around 5-10 domains each day) and target people interested in starting a small business or website. The domains will be sold at fixed prices of $299 for .com's and $149 for .net's. I have estimated my costs for sales, including marketing, and would need to sell about 15% of my inventory annually to make a profit. However, I hope to make some profit and not just break even.

Although I have had good success selling at higher prices on Afternic, I am uncertain if selling them at discounted prices on my own site would be more profitable than aiming for larger deals on major platforms. Your thoughts and feedback on my website unicorndomains .com are highly appreciated. Thank you for your time.


The website looks great, and I appreciate the initiative. I have a few suggestions that might be useful. Firstly, it would be better to integrate direct escrow.com services instead of using e-commerce-style checkouts. Secondly, you could appraise some domains and offer potential buyers the option to make an offer.

 Retailing your domains at the bare minimum price is not advisable since it treats them like mere commodities, which larger companies can afford to do. Lastly, offering referral commissions for promoting sales on social media could help increase the website's visibility.


In my view, a sell-through rate of 15% is quite high and may not be sustainable or realistic. Such a rate could imply that your domains are underpriced. A more effective strategy would be to price your domains higher so that you can sell fewer domains but make the same revenue or even more.
 This approach will require fewer customers to achieve profitability and also slow down the depletion of your domain inventory. It's increasingly challenging to find good domains to replace those you've sold, so it's essential to preserve your inventory.
