    I have listed my profitable site on flippa for rapid cash and attached the genuine Sales report. But I am not getting bid. I also noticed that my competitors are providing fake sales report and doing fake bid. So I am very much Frustrated about Flippa.

    Any one can suggest me how can I get more genuine bid from genuine buyer?

    You will get the most bids within the last 2 days usually.

    Try posting more proof and some comments to enhance buyers.

    Your sales page could be bad, your headline as well. Also did you do a normal auction or front page?

    I sold more than 40K startup websites so far. the best thing now for you if there is no bid is to change your title to something like : 1st page in Google, $xx.Month/10Days...Highly Searchable keywords..... you get the idea.
    Try to put a reserve if you are sure that you auction or website is making money now, you don;t want to lose it for low price.
    try to get it featured in the last 20 hrs (Extra $50 but it is worth it : more people will follow for your next auction, more chance to get the BIN price), forget about your competitors (if they are faking income) (Karma for them)
    Try to make a good favicon if you are going to featured the auction because the favicon will be displayed.

    good luck

    Flippa is converting into crap now a days with fake bids, fake sales screenshot and even fake google analytics. You can see a same type of website , same statistics , but a genuine buyer get a bid of 50 bucks and the other who sells eventually get a bid of 500 , there is a lot of backdoor tricks going on , so me suggesting you to contact broker and sell it rather than doing it for yourself , as you might better in making websites but not sales.

    It's hard to get bids with no upgrades and if you have an average site, since with the volume of sales in there your auction won't get many views

    I guess posting some genuine proofs of income or traffic on flippa works.If you are selling some thing at flippa then you have to wait at least one week to get it done.

    You've got to be generating revenue. Then SELL them on what they're getting.

    I have had the same ploblems as OP, because I provide real results I'm inadequate in comparison to the "WE MAKE $50,000 OF ADSENSE WITH THIS AUTOMATED BLOG WITH THE WORST KEYWORDS". Where else would you recommend because I have been trying to get into the website flipping business but as you said Flippa is full of just BS websites anymore.

    Thanks

    Everytime I've sold on flippa I've used a new account. Make your titles and description catchy and def talk about google ranking and alexa ranking. Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks for a site to sell.
