DropCatch.com is having a few problems

I guess you all have heard by now about the new backorder service that was launched by HugeDomains.com that is called DropCatch.com. I was bidding for the domain name Bespoke.com but stopped at about $18,000. It was sold for $18,805 after 2 other buyers outbid me.

DropCatch.com wrote a post yesterday highlighting some technical difficulties in regards to processing payments, starting auctions and delivering domains.

Here is their blog post:

Hello All!

Over the weekend we ran into some technical difficulties in regards to processing payments, starting auctions and delivering domains; as far as we can tell (email us if we’re wrong) no one got overcharged for their domains, but some emails may not have gone out and some payments may not have gotten processed in a timely manner.

Additionally, we have a handful of auctions that will be starting TODAY (instead of on their catch day) at the normal time and will run for the full 3-day duration. Those auctions will be for:

  • 3dPrinterPen.com
  • 74537.com
  • 76081.com
  • FindMyTalent.com
  • GlobalPad.com
  • InTemper.com
  • KAjmer.com
  • LinCredible.com
  • OneAuction.com
  • YYQG.com
  • ZyFish.com

Lastly, this morning, some of you may have gotten alerted that domains that hadn’t dropped yet had been missed; this was obviously a mistake and we’ve been working to rectify that through the morning to make sure that your names all make into our chase-list for the drop today.

If you’re still experiencing any problems as of now, please email to let us know and we’ll get a fix in the works as fast as we can.

  1. Add one more problem to the list which is “public auctions” 😀

  2. Since they are in “beta” one would expect problems to exist…
    I do agree about the public auctions, that should be removed. To me that is the biggest reason not to use this service.

  3. Don’t feed the beast people!

  4. I was wondering why you would bid $18,000 on bespoke.com.
    Then i appraised it, now i see why.
