Can I Make an Offer Outside of Flippa?


Can I Make an Offer Outside of Flippa?


Flippa is committed to ensuring that all buyers and sellers are looked after and this continues through the listing period (auction or classified) and into the payment process, ensuring that sellers receive payment before any ownership or assets are transferred; and ensuring that buyers receive exactly what they purchased. 

Yes, you can discuss and negotiate in whatever form and in whatever way most suits you, however the actual offer or auction bid needs to be placed on the Flippa listing. If its not lodged on Flippa, it does not happen.

  • This means in an auction continues to run without your bid being placed and you could lose out to another buyer.
  • This means in classified sale a seller can receive other offers and accept one from someone else, meaning that you lose out to another buyer.

Flippa is also unable to help you with issues that arise from activity conducted outside the Flippa system. Our secure Escrow service is here to protect you by holding payment securely for you whilst you review assets and confirm what you have received is what you were expecting. If there are any concerns or issues we still have your payment secured and can return it to you. If you transact outside of the platform and Flippa Escrow we cannot help you other than try and mediate the best way that we can.

If a user has contacted you to conduct a sale off-platform, please report it to us by contacting here.
