    I'm looking to flip an app I bought recently for a nice healthy profit.

    I'm very experienced with Flippa so list all of my sites there, but rarely see Facebook apps.

    Does anyone know any other places to reach buyers of apps? I'm not looking for places like DP where most people can't afford $20.

    Thanks!

    I sold my FB app for £403 on eBay. The app had 23K active users and had generated around $700 in profit. The new owner kept out of touch with the app users and blamed me when it crashed. I had a PP dispite for a little while but ended up winning it. Just make sure that the app is easy as hell to manage and maintain or you will spend countless hours offering support. Try to write a readme that can be used globally across all apps thay you may sell.

    I have seen apps being sold on Flippa before, I'm going to try my next app on there.

    Thanks for the advice. I'm not a fan of ebay, too many noobs who will just burn the site/app to the ground and blame you. I've got pages of support docs and a really easy backend from the developer so that shouldn't be an issue.

    I think I'll have a try on Flippa if none of my previous clients are interested.

    I'll let you guys know how I get on!
