    If I were you, I would immediately get a refund and move on without spending another minute of my life on this.

    Contrary to what many e-book salesmen tell you, building template sites and then flogging them on Flippa doesn't work any longer (if it ever has), mainly because of two things:

    a) There are hundreds upon hundreds people trying to do this at all times (thanks to the same e-book sellers), meaning that Flippa is massively overloaded with sites like this, while at the same time there are only few gullible idiots (pardon my French) buying those sites.

    b) It's just not worth your time. Even if you managed to get an average high bid of $100 (unlikely) and sell 75% of all sites that you list (highly unlikely), your net profit would be minimal. After you pay Flippa (listing fees + success fees) and pay for the domain name you will be left with around $35-$40. That would be your pay for a good 20-30 hours of hard work, making your hourly profit around $1-2 - a few times less than you would get for flipping burgers at McDonald's.

    Website flipping business has been promoted considerably at present. But as a beginner you should learn properly about website flipping. You have to go through some steps such as selecting popular niche, getting a domain name, selecting a hosting, including a good amount of articles, adding some stock images, and visiting marketplace.
