|Valid Domain Name Extensions
Bido accepts all ccTLDs (.de, .co.uk, .in, etc.), gTLDs (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz), and some sTLDs (.mobi, .name, .pro, .asia) for auction. Adult domains are allowed, however we ask that you categorize your adult domains in the adult category properly.
|Short Generics Preferred
As a general guideline, it's best to submit only one or two word generic domain names. Exceptions would be a two letter/character .com, or a three digit.com.
Some restrictions on the free submission for auction apply.
|BidoPrice = The Price Of Engagement
You specify your BidoPrice anywhere from $9 on up. The community votes on what goes to auction, based on the item and it's BidoPrice.
|Select Your BidoPrice Accurately
Bido recommends pricing your domains with an accurate BidoPrice. Since domains are voted on if they go to auction, it's your responsibility to price your domains accurately so that they get voted on, subsequently make it to auction, and attract bidders. The more bidders, the more pressure, and the better chance for bidding wars.
|BidoPrice Gives Buyers And Sellers Full Control
Bido allows the sale of domains at any price level above our minimum starting BidoPrice of $9. The BidoPrice system allows you to ensure that your domain is guaranteed to not sell at a drastically low price. In addition, if the auction closes and your BidoPrice isn't met, Bido automatically gives you the option to log in and click to accept the highest bid within 24 hours of the auction close. BidoPrice gives buyers full control because while your domain is up for voting, any prospective bidder may place a prebid and instantly send the domain to auction. Next to the Vote icon is a Bid icon, and a preliminary bid is essentially considered as enough votes to go to auction.
The Bido commission is a percentage of the sale amount for all sales (applicable only to successful sales), there are no minimal fees. It's free to submit domains for voting to go to auction. Should you wish to skip voting, after you submit your domains, you may accelerate your listings to auction by using BidoCredits. The fee structure to accelerate your listing to auction (should you not want to wait for votes) is 0.01 BidoCredits per each $10 of your selected BidoPrice). If your auction ends with a winner, the BidoCredits are returned back to your account for reuse later.
If the auction closes with bids and your BidoPrice isn't met, Bido gives you the option to log in and click to accept the highest bid within 24 hours of the auction close. Bidders are bound to honor their highest bid for 24 hours of the closing time of the auction, even if the BidoPrice is not met. This gives you a fallback option to sell your domain even if the price level did not meet your initial expectations. In addition, if you select the highest bid within 24 hours, any acceleration BidoCredits you may have used are returned back to you.
