Step 1: Receive a Domain Sales Contract

Both parties receive a sales contract which is professionally drawn up to suit the needs of domain or website sales. The sales agreement can be reviewed and agreed to from within your member account.

Step 2: Payment to Sedo Customer Account

The buyer places the funds in their Sedo customer account via wire transfer, Paypal, or credit card (Paypal and credit card may not be available for payments exceeding a certain amount).

Step 3: Technical Domain Transfer

Sedo works with both parties and their registrars to quickly and securely transfer the domain. Through our large network of registrars we can ensure the most efficient domain transfer possible. Sedo's domain transfer service applies to the domain name and purchase price only. The transfer of any related website content or additionally negotiated items must be arranged between the parties directly.

Step 4: Payment to Seller

Once Sedo can confirm that the buyer is the owner of the domain name, we remit the funds to the domain seller and the transaction is finished.

If you are a domain buyer or seller, you can secure your domain transfers using Sedo's Domain Transfer Service  even if the transaction was not conducted through Sedo. To get started with the external domain transfer service, email our transfer specialists and provide the following information:
