I'm wanting to have a domain name for my business that has already been registered by someone but that he is not using. He is offering it to me for $1000 (which is too much for me) and I offered him the sum of $300, which he is not interested in. How do I convince him to sell me the domain for a lesser price?
As per my findings, that name is also occupied at social media sites, and the
.org domain name is also occupied.
This is what I am planning to write to him:-
After a long thought, I have reconsidered the offer for you for this domain. I understand your expectations. I can pay you something like 500USDs as compensation and I think it is a fair now. There has been sale of similar domains around this price range. And this name is already occupied at several social media sites too & other domain extensions are also occupied so the things are not that easy with this. I have stretched it out beyond the maximum I could pay for any domain. This is my last attempt to negotiate for this deal, with my best offer, as I think it might be offending you to take this further.
I would request you to give your approval now to make this deal successful.
Give it a thought and let me know..
Let me know how I could make it better..
After having sent him an offer for 500$ 3 days ago, I have just received back a response from him, after 3 days, saying "750$ & its yours!" but I just completed the purchase of another domain for 400$, a few hours ago :(. Now his email that could have filled me with joy is now not making me happy because I have already paid from my budget. Assuming I am still interested in this domain but not at the price that I put previously(500$), how should I take this further? I can now only pay 200$(& that already makes me overbudget) for buying this another name.
