Pay.com Up For Sale

DomainAdvisors have put up an exclusive listing of premium domain name Pay.com. Anyone interested in getting the domain name will most likely have to pay a 7 figure amount – excuse the pun.

“Domain names like Pay.com have a strong and memorable branding association and offer significant advantages to online businesses in terms of pay-per-click (PPC) keyword advertising and search engine optimization (SEO),” said Tessa Holcomb, CEO of DomainAdvisors. “It’s not often that a domain name of this caliber becomes available for sale, and we are excited about the opportunity. There are only a few names representing the small segment of the domain market commanding a multi seven-figure price tag and Pay.com is definitely one of them.”

It’s a good time to sell too, as the Yankee Group predicts there will be over $985 billion dollars in worldwide mobile micro payments by 2015 while currently 1/3 of all internet users are utilizing a micro payment service. The press release announcing the sale listing was probably put up to coincide with Google’s launch of Google Wallet and the massive Google Offers too.

  1. I would think that PayPal/eBay would want to buy this, if only to keep someone else from having the “shorter” version of the PayPal name. Besides, they should be able to afford it.
