    First time trying out Flippa, wanted to get rid of one of my domains.

    It said $9 on the front selling page even on their selling section:

    Listing fee for new websites The seller pays this fee to create the listing $9

    Am I missing something? this is for a domain itself. Thanks

    I dont' see the thing where it says $9 anywhere on their homepage. I've always thought their listing fees were too high to sell domains if it was anything less than a premium name.

    Domains are and have always been 29$ for the longest time.

    The 9$ thing is for new websites with no traffic.

    And the 9$ listing gets you very shitty exposure on the site to.

    Okays, I wouldn't know as I've never used the site before.

    Just thought its a little bit of a rip off if I want to quick sale a domain for $100 or so
    and they'll be taking $29 initial and extras once its completed. I'll pass.

    Thanks for the answers, very helpful.

    Yup $9 is for domain with no traffic but they charge 15% after sales.

    This was simply just a domain name, no website & no traffic which costs $9

    I guess flippa want developed websites to keep people wondering on their site
