$350,000 Pays.com Buyer Revealed

Domain name marketplace Sedo has just announced it facilitated the sale of Pays.com for $350,000, taking a very early lead as the largest publicly-disclosed sale of 2022 so far. Expect that to change.

Nonetheless, a $350,000 payday for Pays.com is significant, especially for the previous owner.

According to Archive.org, Pays.com was previously owned by Pays.com LLC, a company with ties to Michigan and Florida. The domain looks to be connected to a network of websites that includes AmeriCareers.com, UniversityJobs.com, and PostDocJobs.com.

A 2018 screenshot of Pays.com suggests that the domain has been on the market for several years, with Sedo tasked with the job of selling Pays.com.

Pays.com was acquired by RoboMarkets, a European brokerage company offering stock and forex trading. As of writing, it’s unclear why RoboMarkets acquired Pays.com. There are no signs of a new product or trademarks relating to a new product, but a $350,000 domain purchase would suggest a plan to use “Pays” in some way.

RoboMarkets also acquired Pays.co.uk around the same time that it bought the .com. Both domains are registered at GoDaddy.
