DropCatch Launches Beta Discount Club – Backorders Starting at $15

dropcatch-logoSince DropCatch first started taking backorders, they have received numerous requests from customers wanting to backorder domains at discounted rates. To meet this desire, they have created the DropCatch Discount Club.

The Discount Club is an invitation-only beta for select DropCatch.com Customers who desire to backorder numerous domain names per day at rates lower than the standard $59 backorder price. If you are a high volume backorderer, you can email Support@DropCatch.com to request access to this program.

While this is invitation-only right now, they will likely bring more customers into this program as time goes on.

Discount Club pricing, like standard-rate pricing, includes the first year of registration services at NameBright.com, but follows a “name your price” model instead of a minimum $59 bid model. When you place a Discount Club backorder, you name your price between $15 and $58 USD. Under this model, they consider the “winner” of a caught domain to be whoever offered the highest price for it.

There are NO AUCTIONS with the Discount Club and the person who placed the highest Discount Club backorder price will be awarded the domain.

Please note that Discount Club backorders will always be trumped by $59 backorders.

Discount Club backorders will also be trumped by corporate partners who are also interested in domain names. In other words, Standard-rate, $59, backorders will have the highest priority within DropCatch.com and will beat out all other classes of backorder; if no standard-rate backorders exist, but a backorder exists from one of the corporate partners (such as HugeDomains), the corporate partner will be the winner of the domain; finally, if no competing backorders exist at higher priorities, the domain finally goes to the Discount Club and will be made available to the person with the highest Discount Club backorder price.

Please send an email to support@DropCatch.com if you would like to be considered for this program.

  1. So this would be for domains that nobody has placed a regular backorder on which means they would expire. Why pay them to grab a domain that is going to definitely expire instead of waiting for it to drop and picking it up?

  2. I love how your breakthrough. Backorder domain name reservation service to purchase a domain name if the domain name is free. This service enables people with real needs will have the opportunity to use the domain name matching that previously it was owned by someone else.!

  3. “There are NO AUCTIONS with the Discount Club and the person who placed the highest Discount Club backorder price will be awarded the domain.”

    And what happens if for example 2 people both place a $58 USD bid on a domain in the discount club?

  4. If two users place a Discount Club backorder at the same price point (such as $58) the domain will be awarded to the user that first placed the backorder.

    Thanks,

  5. G, there’s some PS with bids on at DC. Just goes to show some domainers will bid on anything without doing any hunting.

  6. The only problem I see here is Dropcatch is chasing domains for themselves. So, you would be better served to spend $59 and hope your the only one vs $58 and have it go to Dropcatch.

  7. Namebright/dropcatch is picking up 1000 domains plus per day – it would be difficult to use this new bulk service w/out running into a conflict with them picking the domain up for their own
    corporately held inventory.

  8. There is a conflict of interest as hugedomains can use domainer’s work to catch more names
