    Flippa has become so pathetic that it is downright funny right now. It looks like as if they are being hosted on a cheap shared hosting plan. I think they want to make the record for all the possible http errors in a single day. Today so far 502, 504, 526. Funny thing is it has been going on for almost a month now. Their site is full of bugs which they don't even bother fixing. it is clear as day that they want to earn every single penny they can which is not wrong but they have spammed their site with spammy hostgator and adsense banners.

    Not that I'm fond of Flippa's current quality either, but $100 for a prebuilt/focused site is a bargain if it would take someone 4/8/12 hours to build themself.

    Yeah Flippa is going down the tubes fast. I would be leery of doing any business on there now - even if I saw a great deal, because it is not moderated properly there and wrought with spam and scam.

    Agree, I did some due diligence on an "editors choice" listing and it was loaded with bad backlinks. Any alternative sites you recommend?

    users who quite often have complaints regarding the hiked prices in website as well as domain listings & its sale, which they face on flippa . And this came out to be one of the leading causes which prevents them from sealing successful deals.

    Sellers open auction on their websites, but when the end bid is too low, they cancel their website listings. This is stupid if you ask me.

    Wow this thread has put the final nail on the Flippa coffin.

    But they're still out there. What's good about Flippa then? Nothing? How do they stay afloat?

    LOL! That'd be site inception. Posting a revenue stream that'll go kaputs after you buy the site LOL.

    Can't be I can't believe Flippa is folding.

    I took it positively
    Flippa is trying to increase quality so that those shitty won't be listed.

    Hello guys,

    I have a warez website that I want to sell, do you think flippa is a good place for that? Like you said, their website isn't really professionnal and I'am a little sceptic about it.
