    Hi Guys,

    I put on Flippa my Online Shop with a BIN 29k

    At the moment there are 9 bids (highest 7k) but already 2 days 0 bids? WTF?

    2 days to Finish 17 on Watching Listing

    Any Idea maybe they just waiting to last day?

    ... could be like eBay, everyone waiting until the last minute. But at the end of the day, everyone wants a bargain! :D

    $29k? GL!

    One of the biggest things going for your site is revenue - it may be worth slightly adjusting your title to read something like "URL: High Revenue Established Online Shop - Strong SEO Traffic" to make it jump out. You can no longer alter the title yourself as you have bids. Let us know if you would like someone from the Flippa support team to do this for you.

    I've also taken the liberty of featuring your listing on the front page which should give it more visibility.

    Together, these should assist with exposure and buyer interest.

    Hi pogosa.
    It really varies depending on the listing. Be assured that your view and watch stats are healthy. I really cannot guarantee where bidding will head over the next 24hrs.

    You have no reason to be nervous so long as you are happy with your reserve price - if the auction ends below this, you are under no obligation to sell your website.

    Otherwise just keep on be responsive to comments/PMs and the auction should take care of itself.

    20 watchers is good that's what I aim for. All bids come at the end. eGay style.

    Also note that the day and time at which you start the auction (and end the auction) is very important if you want higher bids and bidding till the final minutes. You have to make sure that there are many active users especially from the US at the time you start the auction. You'd generally get bids only during the start and end of the auction.

    Pogosa - looks like it sold successfully in the end which is great news (not quite BIN but well beyond reserve!). Trust you are happy with the price. Given the number of bidders and bids, I do feel it ended up being quite a competitive auction.

    Well done. Hopefully now you can relax (pun intended!)
