    Hello everyone,

    has anyone ever sold an app here before?
    I've made an app around a year ago and decided to sell it. I've contacted several companies and ended up getting the best offer from WePurchaseApps, has anyone here used them here or heard of them? They use escrow so I'm pretty sure it's safe, but I want to check in here to see if anyone knows of them.
    Thanks!

    If anyone is wondering. I decided to go through with the deal that WePurchaseApps offered me. I just transferred my app and source code to them and Escrow released the funds. Now I'm a very happy camper sitting with an extra $70k in my bank account :D

    Thanks for the update. I have a mobile web platform developed that i was thinking of selling off. Did you list the sale price or did they look at your app and they made an offer? Was there room for negotiation at all?

    Did you have to sign anything like a no compete stating that you could not do anything in that market space for a certain amount of time?

    Hey,
    I just posted my apps link in their website, told them the installs then got the offer. If you go on the website http://wepurchaseapps.com then click get offer, then type in your link, the installs and they should get back to you with an offer. I managed to negotiate 5% more than they initially offered. I didn't have to sign anything, they bought it and that's that. They were really friendly and helpful to be honest. I can direct you to the head of sales, the person who was dealing with me. Just PM me

    It was a productivity app for students

    Hi op!

    Interesting post - could you provide info about your userbase, installs, how long was the app in the market, etc.? In the wepurchaseapps website they state they ask you some questions - what were the questions in your case? Did you provide your app source, website and database to them or was it a standalone app (sqlite or another way to store internal data).

    Cheers!

    I had 90k active users, around 600k installs.. The app was in the market for around 18 months. They asked some questions about the development, how it was built, if I bought traffic for it, if I replied to user reviews, that sort of stuff. I gave them my app source, everything that was a part of the app.
