    Hi

    My site on Flippa is soon about to sell. 3 Hours left and reserve have been met at $x.xxx

    However, the sniper rule extends the auction 4 hours right? so the auction can keep getting extended forever for aslong as there are bidders or what? Because then i need to sleep 3 hours at a time lol.

    This is my first sale and im only accepting bids from trusted bidders. Any tips for me?

    Thanks

    BTW, there are currently 30 people who got it on watchlist. Is that a good indication?

    Correct and correct. That's what most people who sell on Flippa do :)
    Two things to bear in mind, though:

    1) When a bid is placed within the last 4 hours of an auction, the auction gets extended not by 4 hours but so that there would still be 4 hours left till the end (so if someone places a bid when there's 3 hours, 57 minutes left till the end, it only get extended by 3 minutes).

    2) Even if you have pending bids, the auction still gets extended when a new bid is placed. I'm not saying it's a good practice to go to bed for 8 hours and not accept bids, but just wanted to tell you this so you'd know that it isn't the end of the world if you happen to sleep in :)

    Good luck with the sale,

    First time I bought a site off Flippa I thought I was on ebay.....to see the auction run for another four hours after I did a last minute snipe was a shock !

    Hey again, been busy with the transfer hehe. The final amount were $5400. Which im very happy with.

    Buyer have agreed with me to use Escrow, when his funds are confirmed i transfer domain, then he will release money, and i will give him the files.

    So far so good :)

    Exactly :) I dont use Adsense and i dont use SEO. I know people want to know how i earned $7000 in 3 months with a new site. And the answer is in short.. Work like hell.. i worked 10 hours a day on this site for 7 days a week, for 3 months. And thats next to my RL Job. So if you count the hours and hourly wage, its not really that great.

    But due to both the new owner, and my "niche" i cant reveal any info as many of you also know. But thanks for the interest


    PS. Just calculated it. My hourly wage for this site is $7.70 / Hour. My RL Job is $42 / Hour. So no bit secret in my brain guys :) Just work. But i value the experience more than the money. I can easily do this again, but perhaps i can do it in 2½ month next time etc. Keep improving and automating what can be automated or skipped and yet reach the same or better result.

    I live in Denmark, Avg in my country is $30/Hour or something, so a bit higher than normal.

    But things are also expensive :) My appartment rent is $1000 without utilities, and thats just a standard one, nothing fancy :)
