Does Selling across 22 Marketplaces increase my chances?
Augmenting the efforts of third-party marketplaces (where your domains are listed) is an approach many domain investors have found highly effective.
For example, there is solid logic in advertising your business with link pointing to your marketplace website as initial point of sale (POS). Buyer decides if he/she wants to buy directly from you or choose any of the
popular third-party marketplaces.
Apart from saving big on promoting your domains (since you are promoting your entire portfolio with a single Ad), there may be other reasons why you might want to re-direct buyers to a third-party platform to complete
the purchase : level of trust enjoyed by established marketplace(s), low sales commission, payment security, lack of technical know-how in transferring domains to buyers,
you don't want to go through the rigors of domain escrow services, international payment processors don't operate in your country, etc.
