Freelancer.com Launches New Domain And Website Marketplace

by Brad MerrillSeptember 3, 2014

Freelancer.com has announced the launch of its new online marketplace for digital goods, with a particular focus on domain and website sales.

The platform, Freemarket.com, is a spin-off from internet marketing community and marketplace Warrior Forum, which Freelancer.com acquired in April for $3.2 million. The acquisition won the company an additional 732,000 users.

Freemarket.com sellers can list both domain names and websites, and may opt to put them up for auction or use a “buy-it-now” option, much like eBay.

“The suite of Freelancer.com offerings means that our community has access to a full service platform when creating, building, and selling their entire business or services online,” said Matt Barrie, CEO of Australia-based Freelancer.com.

The marketplace comes as a result of user feedback that suggested that Warrior Forum members were dissatisfied with current domain/website selling options.

This is, without a doubt, a great way to monetize the existing user base of the two sites.

The company does not charge a listing fee for the platform, however it does take a 5% commission for website and domain transactions. Barrie calls this platform the “cheapest way to sell websites and domains in the industry.”
