To list for sale on Flippa you visit https://business.flippa.com/sell and once there chose from one of two options - to list an asset or a business for sale.
How do you know whether to create a business or an asset listing?
- If you are selling a business operation that has been running for over 6 months, is currently trading and you have your financials together (in the form of a P&L, accountant prepared financials or you use accounting software such as Sage or Xero to keep track of your revenue and expenses) then we would consider what you are trying to sell is a business.
- Otherwise you should list as an asset.
Choosing the right type of listing is vital for the success of your sale as you want your listing to be in front of the correct buyer audience.
- The buyer audience for assets are interested in domains, apps or starter sites and possibly businesses that are no longer trading. These are digital assets rather than businesses; or they are former businesses that have the potential to generate revenue again for a new owner. This audience is not looking for a currently trading business operation.
- The buyer audience for businesses are looking for currently trading businesses that have been operating with a profit for over 6 months. This audience is not looking for an asset or a non-trading business.
Please also note that auctions are more appropriate for assets and classifieds are more appropriate for businesses. To learn more, please see this article
If you decide to list as a business, once you complete your listing process you will be directed to either select self-service (where you manage everything yourself); or you will be directed to a broker that will assist you. Please note there is value criteria when requesting broker assistance and that can be found here: https://flippa.com/#pricing
