    Hey guys!

    I have a site auctioned at Flippa...currently there are 2 days left and I'm currently at approx. 40% of my reserve price with 4 bids and 17 watchers.

    I went for the plain auction, without any upgrades. Should I purchase one now? Maybe push it to front page or something? Is it worth it?

    What are you experiences with upgrades?

    How big is the site? It does usually help (in my experience) but you have to take the economics into account. 4 bids (if unique) isn't a bad start, though.

    I've set a reserve prices of $500, curently around $200. I am expecting around $1000 frankly...
    As long as it helps, I'll probably go for it...if it can help me achieve my reserve price, I'm ok.

    Thanks for the reply
