At Flippa, you can buy and sell online businesses in real time. Here's how it works (or watch this short video).
List a property for sale.
To list an online business for sale, you need to:
provide the specific details of the site or domain name for sale
create a title, tags, and detailed descriptions so buyers can find your listing easily
choose to sell at public auction or private sale
choose the payment methods - Flippa Escrow and/or PayPal
select listing upgrades
Make a bid or offer.
Buyers scan Flippa.com listings regularly.
Use the Ask a Question box on the listing page to ask the seller any questions you have about the assets.
To bid in an auction, type the highest amount you're willing to pay into the box, and click the Place Bid button.
Each bidder is accepted or rejected by the seller, and all accepted bidders go into the running to win the auction. As an auction progresses, you can increase your bid to compete with other bidders if you want to.
Some auctions also include a Buy It Now price. You can click the Buy It Now button to buy the property on the spot.
To make an offer in a classified sale, type the amount you want to pay into the box, and click the Place Offer button.
Once the auction ends, the buyer who made the highest accepted bid above the reserve is declared the winner. The auction is closed, and Flippa contacts the seller and auction winner.
In a private sale, only one offer is accepted by the seller, and that offer wins the sale. The sale is closed, and Flippa contacts the seller and sale winner.
This is the end of Flippa's role in the process. Payment and asset transfer is handled by buyers and sellers themselves. Payment can be completed through one of the payment options selected by the seller when listing the property for sale. We recommend Flippa Escrow.
If you missed out on a property you wanted, don't worry. There's always more to buy and sell on Flippa.com.
