Use of the Website
The process of selling
The procedure of selling IPv4 addresses on the Website will be carried out through the open online auction.
If your addresses are in the lists at http://www.spаmhаus.оrg/, then you must select the appropriate options when creating your lot. Naturally, the price for such addresses should be much lower than the market value.
The user, who wants to sell his block must register on the Website, sign NDA and create a lot. We recommend to set the maximum available time for selling your lot; the minimum is one month.
There are two types of lots: without the "Seller accepted price" feature and with the "Seller accepted price" feature.
If you want to sell your IPv4 addresses for a maximum possible price, create a lot without the "Seller accepted price" feature. Just place the desired sale price and wait for bids; there are no restrictions on the highest offered price. Auction will end, when you accept a bid from any buyer or the auction time expires. Other Users will make bids for your lot, alerts on the bids will be coming to the email specified during registration, as all the history of bids will be displayed in your personal account. Bids may start below the price specified when creating a lot, and can exceed the specified price. If the bid offered by other User meets your needs, then in your personal account click "Accept bid" and go to the process of transfer of IPv4 addresses and receive money. If, by the end of the auction none of the bids was interesting, the lot will go to archive, and you can create a new lot with a longer sale time.
If you want to sell your IPv4 addresses faster, and you know what amount you want to receive for them, set the price and choose the "Seller accepted price" option. It will bring an important distinctive feature - the main auction page will now contain the "Seller accepted price" button, and any other User, who is interested in the offered price, can press this button and accept your price offer - such User will automatically be considered as winner of the auction. In this case, you have an obligation to sell lot for a specified price. In addition, the user, who will propose price equal to or greater than the set price, also automatically will be deemed to be the winner. Users can also make bids on this lot, and you can accept any bid you like, not waiting till the end of the auction, or waiting for any user to press the "Seller accepted price" button. Notifications of bids or accepting the price of your lot will be sent to the email-address specified during registration.
The procedure of buying IPv4 addresses on the Website will be carried out through the open online auction.
The User,who wants to purchase an IPv4 address must register on the Website and sign NDA. If there are currently no lots, which you are interested in, during registration or in personal account you can select the necessary type and size of IPv4 block, which you are interested in, and as soon as such addresses are available for purchase, you will be notified by email.
If lots on the Website contain addresses you are interested in, then you can make bid for the lot of IPv4 addresses.
A bid may be lower than the price stated by the seller.
Bid step is 100 EUR.
Please be aware, that the higher is your bid, the more likely that the seller will not wait for the end of the auction and will accept your offer.
Your bid may win if the seller will accept your offer. Your bid may loose for two reasons:
1) Other user will make bid, exceeding your bid - you will receive a notification on such action to your email. After that, you will be able to login to the Website and make a new bid, if you are still interested in buying the lot.
2) The auction has ended, and if your bid was the last one and seller did not accept it - you will receive a notification on this to your email.
Special feature of lots with "Seller accepted price" is that the price of this lot may not rise above the price established by seller. Any bid equal to or greater than the price set by seller is considered to be winning. At the same time, when pressing the "Seller accepted price" button you agree with the seller's price and win the auction.
The process of transferring IPv4 addresses.
After determining the winner for any lot, we contact both the seller and the buyer, if necessary we conduct the check of IPv4 addresses, clarify the questions related to preparation of documents for RIPE (or other RIR), prepare all papers needed to transfer IPv4 addresses.
The process of transferring funds currently will be carried through a escrow-service https://escrow.com/ or https://www.transpact.com/.
After preparing all the necessary documents for the transfer, the buyer and the seller are registered at https://escrow.com/ or https://www.trаnspасt.соm/.
1) The Buyer within three working days sends to the bank account at https://escrow.com/ or https://www.transpact.com/ the whole amount for purchased IPv4 addresses plus the commission.
2) The Seller receives confirmation, that the money had been received to the account of escrow-agent.
3) The Seller sends documents to RIPE (or other RIR) to transfer IPv4 addresses to the Buyer.
4) The Buyer acknowledges that he has received IPv4 addressed, and allows to transfer money to the Seller.
5) If the transmission of IPv4 addresses is not held during the specified time period, the Buyer receives money back.
Security check of IPv4 addresses
After registering on the Website and signing the NDA ("Non-disclosure agreement") any interested Buyer, as agreed with the Seller, can be granted access to the full range of IPv4 addresses for sale. For this please send your request in an arbitrary manner to infо@ipv4brоker.net . If necessary and as agreed, the range of IPv4 addresses, put up for sale, may be introduced by using BGP and routed in GRE tunnel for buyer tests. The seller indicates whether the address is present in any lists on spаmhаus.оrg. This may be the list http://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/ (on the Website displayed as SBL), of the list http://www.spamhaus.org/drop/ (displayed as DROP).
