Bido.com For Sale! Make Your Offer

So here it is: the TOP story of the day – “Bido is ceasing operation as of May 5, 2010. All transactions and accounts will be gracefully finalized and closed.” End of quote from Bido website.

I will not deliberate on why Bido failed and if I liked it or not – you can read other domainers opinions on other websites like DomainNameWire or you can just think for a moment on your own attitude to Bido auction platform. The only thing I really see popping out everywhere in comments to this news is that Bido was to complex. I have similar feeling about it.

But let’s get back to my post title.. I found an interesting comment on DNW.com made by Jarred Cohen, COO of Bido.com:”[…] Since we made the announcement this morning, we had some significant offers come in. If anyone else reading would like to explore acquiring the Bido.com brand, list, and technology, get in touch with me soon. This is a time sensitive opportunity.[…]”.

So it looks like there’s one and only chance to acquire Bido.com and the price is probably not so high taking into account the fact that they just wanted to close it down and didn’t even think of selling Bido. I believe there are at least couple of companies that may be interested in acquiring Bido. Let’s see what future brings. If you would like to contact Jarred Cohen please email him: jarred@bido.com.

I wish all the best to Sahar and the Team, and I am sure they will surprise us with new interesting stuff in coming future!

    I am not surprised at all. From one domain A DAY to auctioning like crazy, it was obvious from start that these people had NO SOLID BIZ plan to start a Business.

    sorry to see you go but your deserved it.
