At Flippa we are committed to ensuring that all buyers and sellers are looked after and this continues through the auction 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.
Flippa also manages any concerns or issues with purchases or bidding through our impartial dispute process.
So that we can do this, all bids and offers must be placed through the Flippa system - this also ensures that Flippa auctions and sales are fair and transparent for all involved.
We do not allow bids or offers outside of Flippa. If you're seen making private offers outside the Flippa system for active auctions or sales, via private message (PM), instant message (IM), email, or any other means, your Flippa account may be suspended, or you may lose your Flippa membership.
Sellers will have their account suspended if they accept or solicit bids or offers outside Flippa.
This includes asking for negotiations to occur over email or otherwise outside Flippa.
Of course, Flippa is unable to help you with issues that arise from activity conducted outside the Flippa system.
