New Sedo contact for IDNForums

Hi,

My name is John Jacobsen. In response to inquiries from various customers and users on this forum, I will be here to represent Sedo on IDNForums.

I look forward to helping you with any questions or comments you may have. I am also looking forward to the continuing emergence and development of the IDN domain business!

Best Regards,

John

Re: New Sedo contact for IDNForums

Welcome John. We appreciate you coming over and to having the opportunity to get some input from members here about what we think is going to be a great wave of IDN interest. SEDO could be a great platform not only for sales but educating people about IDNs and providing information about the imminent idn.idn rollouts.

Re: New Sedo contact for IDNForums

John, we have been bashing our heads against a wall with Sedo for the last 5 years.

If Sedo is in the remotest bit serious about IDN, which frankly it just hasn't been until now, it must make its platform fully IDN compliant. Until it does Sedo will remain a laughing stock amongst IDNers, and both we and you will be wasting our time entering into discussion.

Frankly, Sedo owes everyone here a big apology.

Re: New Sedo contact for IDNForums

welcome, John. It is good to see a Sedo-representative on the forum.

It would be an improvement if Sedo would make
it possible to bring out an offer via
"for sale"-links on non latin IDN's, parked at Sedo.
now those links are broken and
the following error appears when clicking on such links:
"There were errors processing your request:
Invalid call
Please correct your input"

The latin IDNs are supported, unfortunately it is not the case for non latin IDNs.

Re: New Sedo contact for IDNForums

Correction:

Some Latins are supported. Mostly English from what I have seen.

Are you sure this is not just a BOT?

Hey Rofsjan,

I would like to bring this up with our tech team. Would you have any examples of domains that are doing this. You can email me at John.Jacobsen@Sedo.com if you do not wish to post the domains.

Best Regards,

John

Hey RD,

We are seriously heading in the direction of IDN domain sales. We are currently limited with our IDN sales as we don't have the technical resources to support a proper transfer or sales listing. However, this will be different in the future! I will keep you updated with further developments.

Best Regards,

John

Hey Yanni,

We are currently working on developing our IDN platform so that we can support sales and transfers of non-latin IDN domains. Unfortunately, we don't have a deadline for this right now but it is a high priority project and I will keep everyone here posted with any news about it.

Best Regards,

John

Thumbs down What's going on?

Q to SEDO:
I park a good ascii real estate name with SEDO. It gets 60+ clicks a day for $1 a pop. By the end of the month ppc falls to 10c.

I park a good idn phone name with SEDO. It gets 30+ clicks a day for $0.50 a pop. By the end of the month ppc falls to 2c.

What's going on?

Well last time I used Sedo you nearly turned a sale sour because you couldn't even Escrow a name I had sold myself. Worst of it was you diddled around for a couple of weeks in the middle of the transaction before admitting you weren't up to the job. It won't take much to improve on that performance.

I am afraid actions speak lounder than words. Show me some tangible progress and perhaps I start to listen.

What puzzles me is the work you had to make it work with latin IDNs and NOT will all IDNs, that's a real hard to achieve tech stunt, if you ask me...

Re: New Sedo contact for IDNForums

Well we had a $50 auction script at DNlocal that could handle any unicode domain you threw at it from listings to payments ...

I mean, how hard is it to change the charset from iso-8859-1 to utf-8?
And while I appreciate it may not be as simple as that surely it isn't beyond the scope of all those Sedo tech guys (What exactly do they do anyway?)

Take a leaf out of Namedrive's book .. They came here and asked us what we wanted, we told them, they implemented the suggestions and now they have the majority of IDN parking.

Re: New Sedo contact for IDNForums

Thinking about it, Sedo have some serious bridge building to do.

I am still smarting from giving them technical assistance on this one and then being told I would not be eligible for Sedo Pro.

I was further kicked in the teeth when they tried to insist that I issue VAT invoices for buyers after they had withheld identities for 2 or 3 years. Needless to say they got told to shove that where the sun don't shine.

I think I still need to be convinced that we are talking about trading with a Bone Fide outfit.

John is a bonafide representative from SEDO, he and I corresponded by email prior to his joining. He is genuinely interested in getting input from members and seeing how IDNs might get integrated into SEDOs sales business.

Give the guy a break, he is here to gather information and perhaps funnel that up the line at SEDO. His help could be a nice boost in kickstarting IDNs as they get mainstream and more and more domainers and end users see them as the future for various local languages. SEDO would most likely be the best platform for sales into the future, especially with their diverse worldwide audience that has a track record of paying good prices for top quality domains.
So jeez....let's not shoot the messenger...
