Aftermarket.com Has Record Sell-Thru Rate at Auction Down Under

LOS ANGELES--()--The Aftermarket.com live auction took place November 20, 2008 at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Down Under, moving an impressive 80% of the domain auction inventory, an increase of 28% over the previous Aftermarket.com auction in New York. This also marks one of the highest sell-thru rates in the industry.

“Moving such a substantial amount of domains within the time restraints of a live auction made for an exciting, active event,” said Aftermarket.com General Manager Susan Prosser. “The competitively priced domains and ccTLDs were a hot commodity; the no or low reserves and the .AU domains created a frenzied bidding experience, challenging the auctioneer to keep with the live and online bids as they poured in.”

Aftermarket.com partnered with Domain Consultant to select the Down Under auction catalog; focusing on high-quality, aggressively-priced domains with elevated resale values. Nearly 50% of domains were priced at no reserve, with only 7% reserved at over $15,000. Domain sales included:

  • Saws.com $52,000
  • BusinessFinancials.com $1,400
  • Camp.com.au $2,600
  • DownloadIt.com $5,000
  • Jeweller.com.au $9,200
  • MensClothing.com.au $4,000
  • SurfingLessons.com.au $2,200
