    Hello everyone,

    I'm curious how much you can sell a website for on flippa. Let's say its a ecommerce dropship site getting around 4-5K hits a month, ranking for almost all of its keywords and making around $4,000/mo profit. I heard you can sell sites for a years worth of profits, so in that case $48K, is this true?

    usually 12 x months profit....if the website it's very established, and in a good niche, you can ask for 24x.....and if it also has a huge potential, you can go for more than 36x months profit

    You clearly have no idea what you're talking about, so you really shouldn't comment. Comments like this actually affect people's businesses as it would make him put the site up for a price that is way too high and never sell.

    The only sites on Flippa that go for high multiples (regularly) are small adsense sites usually under $10k. Sites other than that are usually just luck.

    @ OP - depending on your history, niche and consistency of profits, you'd probably be looking at around 18x monthly net profit in the current market assuming you have 12 months of verifiable data.

    Have those sites listed at 50x actually sold or are they just listed at that price?

    In my experience don't try to sell such site on flippa without selling a few cheap sites first to get some feedback. If you try to sell a site for 40,000USD+ without any previous transaction feedback no-one will risk buying it from you.
