    ok,

    so i have been dropshipping for a fair while now and created a new clothing site using devilwear.co.uk and their data feed.
    Im thinking of selling it as i want to fund other projects...any dropship pros that can give me a rough idea of how much my site is worth only made a couple of sales and havent got the time to promote it due to my other projects...have done a little seo though not much...
    getting a little organic traffic (around 40-80 hits a day) from google the rest is from plugging the site on twitter
    the site is http://clothingaddict.com
    any guidance would be much appretiated as i have never sold an ecommerce site...ie where to sell how much etc

    I dont think the site is too bad. Assuming drop shipper info is included you could probably get a few hundred $'s on Flippa, tons of morons on there lol

    joking apart though, Flippa is the best place to sell. If you have a new site you'll get around 6x month income + $100, unless you have a ton of traffic or a great profit margin.

    may look into selling on flippa just had a look and seems quite reasonable...i take it all payments are dealt with outside of flippa between the auction winner and the seller not within flippa itself

    Yep, they have no part in the transaction although they will charge you a 5% "success" fee, which is a bit of a joke.

    They invoice you for this, so best thing to do is setup a throwaway account and sell from there, and then don't pay the fee.

    Taking payment can be annoying on small transactions, you can use Paypal but I hate them, so always try to do Escrow or Wire (with a contract).

    My tip for the auction would be include as much information as you can and answer all questions promptly. Install Google Analytics on the site too.

    Edit: Also, don't tell them your supplier in the auction, "keep that information secret for the winning bidder". Or else everyone will go to the site and realise they can pick up a site from the for £129 or whatever it was.

    cheers for the tips meathead will probably wait a couple of weeks before i list the site for auction...by no means desperate for the cash anyway.I usually use escrow for other transactions so will probably go down that route anyway...better safe than sorry

    Are you still looking to sell the site. If so let me know. I would like to know a little more about the companies that you are drop shipping from. I have had several good drop ships sites that I have bought and held for a year before I got offers to buy me out.

    These sites are are niche to get into and to really get it going its going to take some work. but it can happen.
