From today, Brandpa will charge a small fee for each new domain of $5. This is a one time fee paid when your domain is approved and you wish to proceed with listing it. Payment is easy and can be made online via debit or credit card directly from your account admin area. Simply select the domain you want to pay a listing fee of and click “Pay for selected domains”. You’ll then be asked to submit your payment.
We’ve been receiving a huge number of domain names that — quite simply — stretched us too thin. We’ve introduced this fee to encourage better domain name submissions and cover some of the costs of our logos and listing workload.
What happens next
Any domain names submitted before May 22nd 2017 are unaffected. If your domain name was submitted before the 22nd May — but approved now — they are still not affected. Only domains that were submitted after that date (and approved after that date) will be asked to pay to be listed. You can choose not to pay, or to only pay for domains that you choose in your seller login area.
If you have any questions please talk to us below in the comments, email us, or write to us on our Slack channel.
