    Hey All,

    Flippa once again making changes at breakneck speed. Looks like they have disabled buyer certification as every one can bid over $200 without verifying their credit cards.

    Are they getting desperate of new bidders and buyers? Do you guys think they are sinking?

    They'll be out of business soon. And they have themselves to blame and no one else for their downfall. There's a real business opportunity here. Empire flippers is not an option for everyone as they primarily deal with premium listings. Someone should come up with what flippa was years back.

    Well they seem to be pretty determined to drive their business into ground. Sad part is they know they are the only player and can get away with whatever they want but it looks like people are finally moving away.

    They don't even show the courtesy of informing their customers of these changes.

    Looks like flippa doesn't care about the past. What Apple did to IBM in personal computing. They need some good history lessons. They'll soon change their name from flippa to nibba.

    I agree with the sentiment of this absolutely. I don't think they will actually go out of business, I think they will just lay off a shitload of talented people. They did blow their opportunity and now real business firms have taken the market and there is no real digital native that is competitive with old world firms who caught up now.

    I haven't received any emails from them. Be careful it could be phishing.

    Empire Flippa might be. But as one said above, they deal with the premium sites mostly.

    Well for a business to strive one needs persistence and endurance, relating to the flippa case scenario i wouldn't say they decided to leave @ once due to it could be personal issues maybe insufficient fund or not able meet dead line payment, maybe just suggesting though.
