Selling a domain name

Hi - not the run of the mill question, but I've had limited success in finding someone with the experience of selling a domain name.

In brief, what I thought initially was a spam email asking if I was interested in selling a parked domain name I have acquired, has led to an offer to purchase.

Has anyone here sold a domain name before and more importantly, how did the payment/exchange happen?

I'm thinking Paypal....private for them, payment upfront for me etc

Thanks all!

Escrow service?

Not sure of the amounts involved or the fees charged but escrow services can protect both parties.

My only experience was when

My only experience was when EA left us a message about wanting to buy my wife's business domain name. We got in contact with them, and it turned out that we were actually dealing with a third-party proxy contracted by them with no serious interest in purchasing the domain. Our sales negotiation was just a ploy in their attempt to secure a non-competition agreement without compensation in anticipation of EA releasing a similarly titled game. All-in-all, it was a shitty experience.

I do agree with you about PayPal, although if there is any chance of your buyer being shady, keep in mind the potential for a chargeback. Money orders are always a good option.
