DomFam Transfer Coupon Workaround

*** Super Tedious Workaround***

UNX saved $25 for 15 minutes effort, if bulk transfer was working would have taken 5 minutes, you be the judge of what your time is worth!

Note:  This is ONLY if you are doing enough transfers to meet the $60 minimum for 25% off.  If you just want to do 15%, see bottom for much easier method.

This sets up a NEW account and uses one of the domains you enter randomly as the new username.  Mine happened to be the last domain I entered yet that may not be how it chooses.  Because they have so many issues, I have asked support before if they care if you have multiple accounts and they do NOT as long as you are not abusing the affiliate program or doing it to use a coupon over the limit.

After I get all the domains processed, I have support remove them and I push to myself at another account.  So far I have not run into abuse issues with multiple accounts, my plan was to download billing histories and close unused accounts, haven’t gotten to it yet though.  I have a total of 10 now – 2 domain, 3 mydomain, 3 netfirms and 2 dotster.

The only reason I did this is to transfer ME US and BIZ, for this amount of effort, I would just use LCN for COM NET ORG INFO

Use at your own risk!

OK so here’s what I did, and this was tested in October 2017 only at DOMAIN.com, NOW April 2018 looks like it will only work at MyDomain.com

1]  DO NOT LOG IN!

2]  Go to the transfer page of the sibling you want to use (support UNX by using my affiliate links!)
 ̶ ̶h̶t̶t̶p̶s̶:̶/̶/̶w̶w̶w̶.̶d̶o̶m̶a̶i̶n̶.̶c̶o̶m̶/̶d̶o̶m̶a̶i̶n̶s̶/̶t̶r̶a̶n̶s̶f̶e̶r̶.̶b̶m̶l̶?̶A̶f̶f̶I̶D̶=̶8̶5̶8̶2̶9̶6̶ Update – Domain.com transfers not working the same anymore
https://www.mydomain.com/domains/transfer.bml?AffID=839948

3]  Enter the domain you want to transfer (no Auth Code needed)

4]  UNCHECK any offers on the upsell page (mine were NOT checked by default)

5]  You will then be on the cart page and should see the transfer with extension and price.

6]  Use the “Back” button on your browser to go back two pages to enter your next domain name

7]  UNCHECK any offers on the upsell page

8]  You will then be on the cart page and now you will see TWO transfers in your cart

9]  Use the “Back” button and keep repeating until you reach the minimum

10]  When your cart has all the transfers you wish to purchase, enter the coupon code SAVE03 for 25% off

11]  Enter your Customer Info and Credit Card or PayPal

12]  Agree to terms and continue – you should get a “Thank You – Your order was successful” and the amount you were charged

13]  Wait a few minutes for your new Account setup information to be emailed to you

14]  Follow the steps to setup new account

15]  Your new account now has unused credits, you can look at billing manager to verify

16]  Enter your domains and Auth Codes in Bulk Transfer Manager *OR* add them one at a time with “Add Existing” in Domain Central

17]  The bulk Verify Credits STILL does NOT work, so go to Domain Central and enter Auth Codes for each individual domain, when you “Verify Credit” it will automatically process the already purchased credit.

18]  Wait for approval emails, standard transfer wait times apply from this point on

This took me less than 10 minutes to enter six domains for transfer into cart, enter my info and checkout.  Another 5 minutes to receive email and setup account.  The transfer process is a little slower without bulk, but not bad for a handful of domains.  My cost would have been $25 more at the next best prices, so I am OK with spending 15 minutes effort for $25 savings.  I also just like the challenge of making it work : grin :

The transfers themselves took a few hours to complete from Dynadot, which has an instant transfer approval.  Losing registrars that have standard 5-7 day wait transfers are in process, as long as the domain shows it used a transfer credit in the Billing Manager and is “In Progress” you will be fine.

UNX recommends using MyDomain.com rather than NetFirms or Dotster due to lowest potential renewal costs.  Of course if you transfer hop to another sibling, this is a moot point, however, just in case you forget, paying $11-12 for renewal is much better than $14-18

If you just want to do a single transfer or a couple transfers for the lower 15% coupon SAVE01 WITHOUT the minimum, then you can use your existing account, in Domain Central “Add Domain” to enter the domain to be transferred, enter the Auth Code, and you will have only a single domain in cart to checkout.  If you back out and try to add another, it will forget the cart already in progress.  The 15% code has NO minimum, so you could just use it a few times.

 

Feel free to ask any questions or clarifications on NamePros, I just didn’t want to sidetrack the thread with a questionable method.  Plus here I have unlimited editing time in case there are updates.
