Buyer Verification

Before you can bid on a Flippa listing, a $5.00 USD hold is placed on your card. If you choose to bid on a listing or place an offer where the current asking or bid price is $5,000 or more, an additional $500.00 authorization will be required at that time. These are payment holds, not charges or debits, and the funds are automatically made available in your account again without our intervention within ten (10) days per your financial institution or card issuer's policy/process. More details can be found in our Pre-authorization article. 

Please note that all fees and charges are in US Dollars (USD) and there may be currency exchange or other banking fees applicable from your financial institution or card issuer.
