    So let me get this straight. You forwarded the domain/hosting to your buyer so he can "inspect" your website?

    What was the reason he gave?

    You have any legit reason to leave a bad mark on him for this?

    Yeah,I transfered all things to him so that he can inspect my website.And at the end of the inspection period (on the 7th day) he rejected the site.

    In the auction I gave 85% of the traffic was from search engines.But then the traffic was 100uv a day.Now the traffic increased to 200uv a day.But due to less seo work it lost its rank in search engines in 1 week.So that the traffic decreased from search engines but increased from forums and blogs.So that he is rejecting the website.

    He is asking me to transfer the domain to my account so that he can close the transaction at escrow.

    What should I do now?

    Please help.

    The site is not what he wants. There evidently a discrepancy in the description of this site's traffic. I would return the domain name and re-list it with the correct information regardless of what happened within a week. If the site is worth the money it will always sell. Good luck to you, and sorry to see this happen, it happens to all sellers.

    Sounds like someone lied on their site description :)

    Once the transaction is closed you can dispute the listing through Flippa. If you're lucky they'll let you relist it free. If you've lied etc on your site description then the buyer may be found in favour and you'll have to pay to relist.

    I recommend you contact everyone who bid on the auction and see if they can put in a good offer.

    Well, if you provided wrong information in the listing, you got what you deserved. I would return your site also if I was in his shoes.

    I guess you have no choice to return it, try to maybe get a new listing free ( IMO, don't think it will work) and learn from this experience.

    I have been quite successful lately with my auctions, but I never used hype and always provided 100% real data. And never used "site is doing $xxxx/month if it only reached that number one month.

    Good advice here. Contact the other bidders and see if you can arrange another sale. If not relist with more specific information and terms.

    Hey Voxclan,

    What kind of sites are u selling?
    Stablished ones or build-n-go autocontent sites?
    I've seen a lot of them on flippa.
