Domaining using Sedo... Is this Legal?

5 replies
I have a decent Domain name that I would like to sell, and it is listed on Sedo, but in order to go on the standard auction on Sedo you must have at least one offer.... Can I ask someone to make an offer so I can list it on the Auction? I am willing to pay that person to actually buy the Domain if that offer is the only one I get.

Sedo just feels like it takes forever... then again I might just be delusional about my domain and its worthless.

    Cathy, don't do it. This is known as shill bidding and is not tolerated by any marketplace.

      Glad you asked this Cathy. I've often wondered about it myself so it's nice to know the answer.
