Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday September 21st

Sep 21 2017

If you run a retail store, one of your most valuable assets to a bank is your merchant services aka credit cards.  If they can find a low tech, high volume family business its a no risk, easy money, account.  No chargebacks, no fraud, easy money.  As a nursery and plant seller we are a dream.  People call us pretty much every week asking to be our provider. But if you drill down it’s a complicated system with every credit card having a different rate.  Banks take their cut, credit card companies get their cut, merchant services get their cut and the true cost depends on what types of cards come through your store.  Over the years we have a great compilation of data to see exactly what kind of cards are being used.  I can’t tell you if it represents the entire US but we get about 40% debit and 60% credit.   With about 20% of the credit being high rate points cards. High rates being our charges of over 2.5%.  The more points and travel perks you have on your card the more a merchant is charged.  Nothing kills me more than a customer paying a giant bill with a high point card.  It can cost me 3% just to collect my money.  And I don’t want to charge extra because letting them use a credit cards generally leads to customers spending a lot more.  Often more than they can afford.

Our rates are about as good as they can get (non Giant business good)  but that’s because we have never had a chargeback.  Ever.  And not one case of fraud.  I can only imagine what an online company must deal with.  I say this because I moved to a new company and have negotiated a new rate.  Everything has a cost.  Want your money in 24 hours instead of 48?  It cost you.  Want to be able to batch out at 10pm instead of 6 pm?  It cost.  Some say its free for them. It’s not free, they just hide it.  Nothing is really free. I rolled the dice a little and went from a fixed rate to paying for each card.  All in the hopes that I get my 40% debit cards at .5% rate.  I figured figured my old companies  weren’t losing money losing money on the previous fixed rate or they would’t have renewed each year.  We’re going to find out.

And Happy Birthday to Donna Mahoney.  The woman that threw me out of Domain Boardroom.  It’s something I will never forget but I still want her to have a lovely birthday.  We all deserve a nice birthday.

Here are today’s names, you have to click to see current price. 

Quote of the Day:  “Jacob wrestled with God. From that day on he walked with a limp. In a lot of ways I don’t trust a man who doesn’t have a limp” – Jon Foreman  (lead singer of Switchfoot)

Godaddy Names With One or No Bids Hot topic right now. Black, Women, Hispanic all seem to feel oppressed right now Look at the CPC on this one. It’s $29 For $12 its not too bad of a brand I imagine there are a lot of people in this organization. Just no bidders I thought it sounded like child care. And turns out someone in child care has uses this name No bids. There is some damn good fishing in Canada. Just gotta know where No bids. No way this doesn’t sell Here you go Mr. Efty Stuff dealing with the road. But I guess that is pretty obvious It’s 5 O’clock somewhere 5L with no bids Sounds like a cereal on Saturday Night Live
