Flippa may restrict or suspend accounts to protect our community.
If your Flippa account is restricted or suspended, we will email you with the steps you need to take to have your account reinstated.
Flippa may implement account suspension for seven, ten or 30 days or even indefinitely.
Why your account was suspended or restricted
Suspensions are usually placed on accounts for one of the following reasons:
- You have an unpaid invoice
- You have violated one of our rules or policies
- We couldn't verify your account information or you provided misleading or inaccurate information to Flippa
- You have one or more Flippa account
- You sent unsolicited or inappropriate messages to other users, including marketing communications
- You circumvented or attempted to circumvent the Flippa sales process by providing links or messages that prompt other users to complete a transaction elsewhere; or
- You attempted to damage the reputation of another user, their listing or rating
What happens while an account is suspended
When your Flippa account is suspended, you won't be able to:
- create new listings or revise existing listings
- start new discussions or comment on listings
- leave feedback for other users
- bid, buy or sell*
*You will be able to complete a transaction or continue to participate in a thread/discussion which was initiated prior to your suspension period.
How to have your account reinstated
To get your account reinstated, you may need to wait for your temporary suspension to finish, pay an invoice or send us some more information — it depends on why we suspended your account.
If your account was suspended because of outstanding fees, you can make a one-time payment. When we receive your payment, your account will be reinstated.
