Domain investing is like the California Gold Rush. We are hard-working miners, and those domain brokers become wealthy by providing the miners with supplies and services. According to recent research, the average domain broker commission on a domain sale will be 15% in 2023. Domain sales commission, also known as “domain broker fees,” is deducted from the agreed-upon sale price if your domains are sold through a domain name marketplace. Yes, those domain brokers act like digital real estate agents on the internet.
You don’t need domain brokers if you can directly contact the buyer. Once a buyer has made an offer on a domain name via email and we have agreed to the price and terms and conditions, a fee is placed into a domain name escrow account. It is known as “domain escrow fees,” sometimes called external escrow fees or leads, and they are extremely low.
