    I'm finishing my first site to list on Flippa and have a few questions from experts who have done this.

    1. Can I link someone on the site and put "Own this domain" linked to my flippa auction?
    2. Can I also promote it myself and make a deal with someone by listing it on other forums at the same time? Lets say someone wants to buy it direct then I then tell flippa I got a deal stop the auction?

    Thanks

    1) Yes. I think they have buttons to let you do this too.
    2) Flippa ask for exclusivity, but no reason why you couldn't promote elsewhere and link to your Flippa auction. If you list/sell it elsewhere, Flippa will chase you for their success fee, so it's easier to just go through them.

    2) Thanks @meathead1234 I was thinking about that for me to push the traffic to Flippa and just give them their cut, plus in the long run i will hopefully make it back when on some auctions a few people maybe get into a bidding war if I'm lucky.

    @madxseo I'm finishing the first site this week then will list it, and go from there. Maybe put a WSO if I make a sale :) (just kidding).
