    I don't know about anyoneelse, but I have not had a lot of luck selling domains at a decent price at ebay. My last three domains sold there:

    TastefulHomes.com ~ $5.50
    FormalLady.com ~ $1.5
    NationalPottery.com ~ $3.5

    I had placed them there with no reserve, just to see what would happen, and well, they sold inordinantly cheap. Alternatively, I placed several domains out there for what I would value as a fair price, and you could hear crickets chirping. IMO, eBay is a buyers market. Even so, there are a lot of crappy domain related auctions going on there, so buyers have to really understand what they are getting into.

    My best luck at selling has been through self promotion, either posting them on my domain trading site or inquiring via email to relevant companies/parties.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    I have never had much luck with eBay for domains. Most of what is posted there is crap (pardon my bluntness).

    I have had success (both selling and buying) at Sedo and at three forums, DNForum (subscription), Domainsite and NamePros. I have made some mistakes and have had a few surprising success stories. Several of my domains are "parked" at Sedo and NameDrive - until I get a chance to develop them. (Currently I have over 150 at some level of development, from a few one- and two-pagers, to several with thousands of pages.) I get occasional offers on the parked domains and have had a few nice sales through Sedo, because they seem to focus well on sales.

    Just my 2-cents (cause that's about all I have left... )

    I agree with Beachy, Sedo seems a good place. I sold a domain that I bought by mistake (wrong spelling) and parked there, just in case...

    They take a 10% (min $50) cut, in return they provide an escrow service for buyer and seller. Worked well for me.

    I have never sold a domain on eBay, but I've been selling stuff on there since '99 and only in the past year or so have I felt that there is a glut of sellers and not enough buyers for everything it seems like. The past several items I sold went way below what I thought they would go for.
