    We're thrilled that the business of buying and selling websites is doing so well. Inevitably, having more websites up for sale means that bidders have more sites to choose from, and we want to ensure we provide the best sites available for sale. To that end, we are raising the minimum success fee from $5 to $10.

    Translation; and now that we are making more money than ever, we're basically "rolling in money," we thought "what better time than now to fuck the little guy in the ass out of $5.00 dollars more, now that we really have the clout to butt fuck you even more" - and, since you're selling sites for under $200.00 dollars anyway, you're a small fucking piece of shit anyway, what better opportunity to take advantage of you more than ever before!

    It's like a "trigga" - we making more money, so time to fuck you even more :)

    That's how much we appreciate you here at Fuckya, I mean Flippa!

    What a sensitive and unoffensive articulation of the English Language :D

    Reminded me somewhat of Mailer - Greene - Hemingway et al

    Flippa is taking advantage of its monopoly on site flipping business. Just wondering if some competitor can get up and take away their share of the market.

    Scorpion, you hit the nail on the head...

    Unfortunately, flipper has simply become greedy.

    It is tantamount to blackmail - they know damn well they are the only truly viable option when it comes to flipping websites - they have no "real" competition. So, they know that when they "double their fee," you will probably pay it.

    Unlike financial institutions who instituted similar fee increases, market forces "aka competitors" forced them into submission. The consumer simply took their business elsewhere. The offending bank/financial institution suffers financially for it, loses face, and is then forced to retract their fee increase. They get but-fucked and flapped by the news media, learn their lesson with a big slap on their corporate ass, and return policy to what it had been previously.

    However, in this case Flipper has no equal in their field. It essentially amounts
    to blackmail
    - as they know you can't revolt the way consumers did when banking institutions raised their fees.

    Flipper has fucked the little guy - because they can - out of greed...

    .............. SHAME ON YOU FLIPPA :bukkake:...........

    There ya go! Way to help the economy and struggling marketers - you fucking bastards!

    At least they give us a third option, if your desperate to get rid of the website for some money than no money.

    "Make offer link" you get negotiate. Instead of re-listing it and paying another $19
