    Not sure where this topic should go and hence I am posting it under "Lounge". Mods feel free to move it, if needed.

    I have just sold a website on Flippa. I have paid the "Success Fee" 5% of the bid won amount. Now, my question is, how do they pay? Will the buyer pay me directly to my Paypal or will Flippa credit it to my paypal?

    Also, how do they know that I want to be paid only via Paypal?

    Please clarify if you know!

    This should probably go in the 'Site Flipping' section.

    It's up to you and the buyer to arrange the payment and transfer of the website. Flippa is not involved in it at all (which sucks because they should have some sort of escrow service).

    Contact the buyer and give him/her your PayPal address.

    sh*t! If that is the case, I would not have paid the "success fee" until I got paid.

    There are numerous ways you can get paid after selling your site on Flippa. It's your choice what payment method you want to choose. Most individuals will tell you to go with Escrow.com since it is the safest bet, that the buyer doesn't give you the shaft. If you are going to accept a paypal transfer, probably would be a good idea to get the cash upfront and make sure that Paypal knows what it is for, just to cover your bases. But the possibilities are endless as to how you can accept the funds, wire transfer,western union,money orders,cash,paypal, escrow service. The choice is yours.
