SE (or Secure Exchange) is Uniregistry's secure checkout system for purchasing premium domains from the Uniregistry Market. Checking out via SE is simple because we do all the work of securing the funds and then transferring ownership of the domain. When a buyer clicks a checkout link or BIN (Buy It Now) button, s/he is directed through the checkout process where payment is secured via credit card, PayPal, account balance, or bank wire transfer.
Once the funds are secured, if the domain is already registered at Uniregistry, the transfer and sale complete immediately. If the domain lives at another registrar, a transfer to Uniregistry is initiated by our system to a Market holding account and the seller is prompted to enter the authorization code, unlock the domain and when applicable, approve the FOA transfer email. As soon as the transfer to Uniregistry completes, the domain is placed into the Buyer's account and the funds are allocated to the Seller for the next payment cycle.
*There is a 10-day hold placed on newly transferred domains for security purposes
