    It's pretty much a place of scammers now. I have seen very few legit sellers out their as against the whole bunch of scammers who are popping up all of a sudden.

    If you are thinking to purchase anything then be wise and do take proper precaution.

    You will find both good and crap products/services on any open market place, so you can't comment whether that market place is dead or alive. You need to know what exactly you looking for how to get that out from that market place. There are many people on flippa that sells genuine sites that actually makes them money, you just need to find out who is genuine and who not? Look into their profiles, their past history and I am sure you will find many good sellers on board.

    Thanks

    The internet marketing industry is increasing, which means more scammers (obviously), if there are listings with fake reports it doesn't mean that Flippa is dead, there will always be potential buyers for your website.

    I always use the 'At least six months old' filter. Gets rid of all the crap thrown up other night.

    The quality of the listings has gone way down and Flippa does not seem to concerned about policing the listings (no surprise). You can find quality sites on there if you do your homework. My concern is as a seller if Flippa will attract decent buyers.

    Flippa is a bitch if you want to sell a small or medium website, (under $1.000)...
    Too much shitty fees.

    Wrong. Best place to buy is DP. The best place to sell is Flippa.

    I have heard of Flippa being pretty good, but I think that Sedo has a better reputation. Sedo has been around for a long time now, so obviously they are doing something right. Good luck
