Uniregistry Market Fees

Buying a domain name

If you are purchasing a domain name through our Market, you are only responsible for the purchase price and the domain transfer fee (if applicable). The transfer fee only applies to the transaction if the seller has the domain registered at an external registrar. If this is the case, the seller has to transfer it into Uniregistry, which the buyer pays for.

  • The transfer fee will depend on the extension of the domain being purchased. For more information regarding our transfer fees, please refer to our pricing list.

Buy domain service

If you would like to purchase a domain name that is not listed in our Market, you will have to engage in our buy domain service. There is an initial fee of $59.00 for engaging our services and assigning you your dedicated domain broker. Should we be successful, you pay a commission of 15% of the agreed purchase price.

  • If you would like to get started with our buy domain service, please see this link.

Selling a domain name

The fees involved with selling your domain names through our Market will vary depending on a few factors:

  1. Selling through our brokerage vs. self-brokering your own transaction
  2. The sales price
  3. The payment method the buyer uses
  4. The sales method of the domain name

Brokered Transactions:

If you sell a domain name through our brokerage, our default commission is 15% of the sales price (or a minimum of $175.00, whichever is greater), which is paid by the seller.

  • If you sell a domain through our brokerage for $1,000.00, the commission charged would be $175.00 (the minimum).
  • If you sell a domain through our brokerage for $2,000.00, the commission charged would be $300.00 (15%)

Additional fees that may apply to a brokered transaction (fees paid on top of our commission, paid by the seller):

Sales Price Payment Method Fee
$0 - $10,000.00 Wire Payment
$10,000.00+ Wire Payment
$0 - $10,000.00 Credit Card/PayPal 3.88%
  • There are no additional fees when the buyer pays with wire.
  • If the buyer pays with a credit card or PayPal on any transaction where the sales price is between $0 - $10,000.00, an extra 3.88% will be added to our default brokerage commission.
  • Buyers cannot pay with a credit card or PayPal on a transaction where the sales price exceeds $10,000.00.

Self-brokered Transactions:

If you sell a domain name using our CRM on an inquiry that is not assigned to our brokerage, the fees involved will depend on the sales price and payment methods used.

Sales Price Payment Method Fee
$0 - $5,000.00 Wire Payment 3%
$5,000.00+ Wire Payment 3% of $5,000.00 + 0.3% of the exceeding amount
$0 - $10,000.00 Credit Card/PayPal 6.88%
$10,000.00+ Credit Card/PayPal

 The wire payment for a transaction where the sales price exceeds $5,000.00 can be broken down as follows: If the sales price of the domain name was $7,000.00, the seller would be charged $156.00: 3% of $5,000.00 = $150.00, + 0.3% of $2,000.00 = $6.00. 

  • Buyers cannot pay with a credit card or PayPal on a transaction where the sales price exceeds $10,000.00.
