Rules for sellers: NOTE: THIS WHOLE PAGE NEEDS TO BE WRITTEN PER NAMEWAY™ TERMS…
NameWay™ works hard to provide a user-friendly domain marketplace and to generate traffic for its domain listings. The following rules for sellers help NameWay™ ensure secure and painless transactions for domain sales.
NameWay™’s rules for sellers apply to domains sold through the NameWay™ marketplace or with the assistance of NameWay™’s domain brokerage services.
The following practices are not permitted by NameWay™:
If your domain is sold, you must complete the transaction with a ready, willing, and able buyer. Sellers who refuse to complete an accepted transaction risk having their NameWay™ accounts cancelled.
Modification of listings during negotiation
If you are made aware of an offer on your domain name, any change to your listing, including an increase in price or reduction of add-ons included with the sale within the following two weeks, will be considered a violation of NameWay™’s rules. Sellers refusing to return their listing to the previous state risk having their NameWay™ accounts cancelled.
Violation of sales exclusivity agreement
submitting and accepting your name for listing at NameWay™ you are agreeing to have NameWay™ as the exclusive seller for the duration that a domain name is listed, and transacting a sale outside of the NameWay™ marketplace for the purpose of circumventing fees that would otherwise be due to NameWay™ is strictly prohibited. At any time you may request to have your domains removed from NameWay™, and they will continue to be listed for 30 days from the time of your notification. Sellers transacting a sale outside of the NameWay™ marketplace will be required to pay the NameWay™ commission amount, which is 30% of the listed sale price on NameWay™.com. NameWay™ reserves the right to cancel the account of a seller with offsite sales.
Solicitation of an offsite sale
Soliciting domain sales outside of the NameWay™ marketplace is strictly prohibited. This includes listing domains that are published for sale on NameWay™ on other domain marketplaces and personal websites, using user contact information obtained from NameWay™ or using any of NameWay™’s services or features to offer to sell any approved domains outside of the NameWay™ marketplace, or sending unsolicited commercial email offers to buyers that have inquired about your domains, or any domains listed on the NameWay™marketplace. Domain names found to be listed on external websites will be removed by NameWay™, and sellers found intentionally or repeatedly violating these anti-solicitation rules risk having their NameWay™ accounts cancelled.
Publication of sales information on external websites
Information on any domain name sold at NameWay™, including the name, price and/or logo design may not be listed on your personal website or other marketplace without NameWay™’s approval. NameWay™ retains the right to be the sole publisher of sales information in order to comply with customers’ needs to make this information private at any time. Sellers publishing NameWay™ domain sales information without NameWay™’s approval risk having their NameWay™ accounts cancelled.
Listing trademark protected domains
When you list a domain for sale in NameWay™’s domain database you are representing that you are the legal owner of the domain and that the domain is free of any legal proceedings challenging your right to use the domain. This includes domains which infringe upon the rights of international trademark owners. Before listing a domain for sale in the domain database, it is your responsibility to perform the necessary research to ensure that your domain does not infringe the intellectual property rights of a third party. Often, sellers only become aware of potential trademark issues after listing their domains for sale in the domain database. When this occurs, sellers must remove such domains until legal clarification has been made. NameWay™ reserves the right to remove domains from our domain database which, in NameWay™’s sole discretion, may infringe or violate the proprietary rights of any third party.
Failure to keep Account up-to-date
When listing a domain for sale, sellers agree to keep any data which they have added to the domain database up-to-date. If a domain has expired, the seller must request to have it removed from the database. Furthermore, sellers must remove domains from the domain database immediately if a warning has been issued, or as soon as any knowledge has been received that the rights of a third party or existing laws could be violated by the listing. This shall apply until legal clarification of the situation has been made.
