NameLayer: Seven day trial period when buying a domain

We ran across those friendly fellas over at NameLayer.com – a company ran by Julian Shapiro, CEO and Edward James, COO.

The Los Angeles company appears to own a domain inventory that consists of several hundred two-word dot com domains.

One can select a domain from the NameLayer inventory and initiate the acquisition process, paying via Paypal or Escrow.com

What caught our attention, however, was this phrase in the agreement, that gives a 7-day money back guarantee:

“NameLayer offers a full refund (less transaction fees) on Domain sales in the event that You choose to return the Domain within 7 calendar days of purchase. You will be permitted two package returns per calendar year. In order to qualify for a refund, You must have maintained the Domain with the current registrar at the time of purchase, and You shall return the Domain, including exclusive control thereof, to NameLayer.”

This is definitely a departure from other online points of sale such as Afternic, BuyDomains and Sedo, where all sales are final.

While we aren’t sure how effective this process is, it’s a feature many buyers would welcome.

    The folks that run drop catcher NameBright sell their domains via HugeDomains.com.

    I noticed quite some time ago that Huge Domains offers a “30 Day, No Questions Asked, Money
    Back Return Policy”

    “100% satisfaction guarantee on every domain name that we sell. If you buy a domain and are unhappy with it, we will accept the return within 30 days and issue a full refund – no questions asked.”.

    It’s limited to one return per year and has the usual Return Terms such as being at the same Registrar, no negative usage of the domain and such.

    Thanks Trico, that’s good to know 🙂

  3. So i will buy 2 of their domains with most traffic, make some dollars with parking for 1 week, take the money, then return the 2 to them, and run . If there were thousand like “me”, then they would have some problem. I wouldn’t offer this option with my domains.
