Selling domains with Offer/Counter Offer or Buy Now Listings

GoDaddy Auctions® lets you sell domain names with Offer/Counter Offer or Buy Now listings.

With Offer/Counter Offer listings, you can let buyers submit their own offers for your domain names. When a buyer submits an offer, you can either accept it, submit a counter offer, or push the listing to a 7-Day Public Auction using the buyer's initial offer as an opening bid. For more information, see What is GoDaddy Auctions®?

When you accept an offer or the buyer accepts your counter offer, the sale ends. If you include a Buy Now option, the sale ends when a buyer accepts the Buy Now price, or when you or a buyer accepts an offer. There is no obligation to accept an offer.

For more information about your listing options, see Listing types for GoDaddy Auctions®.
