October 25th... Domain sold
October 31st...Funds clear and contact buyer
Nov 2nd... After learning that Godaddy does not have a secure way to send the domain I contacted them to handle transfer. The problem is once sold they tell you to contact buyer but do not give you their and expect you to arrange the transfer via email which could allow for the buyer to claim you never sent it. They took control of the transfer.
Nov 2nd... buyer emails me to confirm he received the transfer
Novemeber 4th.... Still no funds in my paypal
This will be the last time I sell a domain with go daddy
When you sell a domain to a buyer through the auction interface, it is up to the buyer and seller to be sure the transfer codes are exchanged so the domain can be moved. GoDaddy facilitates to make sure that the buyer gets the domain and the seller gets paid. if you still have not received the funds, you can simply write directly to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will assist you.
