    Does anyone know what my options are after being banned on Flippa? I simply put that I would do SEO services for the site I was selling and they banned me for it. Can I make a new account? I think I was IP banned.

    Were the seo services an added cost or included with the cost of the site? Just contact support and enquire about it, if you be reasonable and plead ignorance, you probably have a good chance of being unbanned.

    Don't bump, you may not create multiple accounts, email them and they will tell you if you can make an account.

    Flippa wouldn't ban you for offering SEO services with a site you were selling so I don't believe you. It's rare for them to ban accounts, getting a suspension is far more likely for a first time minor offence.

    If that's the case, request for account reinstatement. Flippa guys are good and helpful.

    I've sold sites and as a BIN Bonus I've offered to do SEO for using the BIN. I've never tried selling them separately though.

    OP ? I?m from Flippa and can confirm meathead1234?s comment that we don?t ban OR suspend people for offering SEO services as part of a website listing. The fact that you were banned indicates something much more serious.

    Maybe if you let me know your Flippa ID, I can give you a more comprehensive breakdown as to why you were banned ?
