What IDNers Would Like To See In An Auction Site...

Hi All,

I am wondering what IDNers would like to see in an auction site that is just dedicated to IDNs. We are coming up with a new website and are interested in what everybody's ideas are. thanks!

It needs to be accessible in multiple languages so that native users can make purchases. Marketing to English speaking customers only means your pretty much missing the whole point to IDN's.

Buyers and the site owner spending big dollars on an on-line campaign to promote idn visibility. If not possible, boobs: Oranges, Lemons, Grape Fruit, Pears, Sweet Potatoes, Pointers, Under Chinners, Ballons, Coat Hooks or Block Busters.

Exactly.

Ideally, the word "IDN" wouldn't even appear on the site. There would be an auction site in Russian where Russians could bid on Russian domains, a site in Chinese where Chinese speakers could bid on Chinese domains, etc.

But it may be a couple of years before an auction site like this would make any money. The end users are still not aware of what is coming.

Sales either to End Users or sales to native domainers.

1. Localized language interface.

2. Many categories

3. Searchable

4. Can manage escrows

5. Cheap escrows

6. Reasonable commissions.

7. Easy linking to auctions (short URLs)

8. Integration with paypal and alertpay

I also should point out, having localized IDNs arent necessary. Just make individual language pages. You might want to also contact afternic to be a partner to get more traffic and customers. It would be a huge benefit for you site.
