For creatives who have domains listed in the Domain Marketplace, you will now start seeing options in your account regarding renewals. Note: These options will only be visible for domains that are about to expire in the next 60-90 days.
To recap our policies, you can renew your marketplace listing for 1 year (at the originally approved commission terms) by paying $10.
As an alternative to paying the $10 fees, you might see an additional option for a reduced commission (where you do not have to pay the $10 fees). Note: This option may not be available of all domains.
You also have the option to decline a renewal in which case your domain will not be renewed and your marketplace listing will be removed at the end of domain registration.
If you choose the first option ($10 payment), you will not be required to send the payment to SH. Instead, we will simply deduct your account balance by $10. This way the balance will be automatically adjusted when you win your next contest or sell a marketplace domain. Therefore, your account balance may become negative and will stay negative until an additional amount is credited to your account (as a result of winning a contest, selling a domain, etc).
In order to see the renewal options, please go to your Marketplace dashboard, and filter by “Approved Domains”
