Discussion in 'Site Flipping' started by Vladamir, Mar 14, 2019.
Anyone know of any similar marketplaces besides Empire Flippers?
eBay ? I never even thought of it until a week ago, then I looked on there and there's loads of Domains for sale or on auction
eBay was a domain and website flipping tool for years...
Just started to age a new eBay account by selling books from the charity shops this weekend, then I'll try and flip some cheap domains in a bout a month. Dose anyone know if domains website etc come under the risky categories ?
Nothing risky in selling domains or websites if all is legit.
Its done for man, Sellers and buyers both were customers, they have forgotten the roots or some meathead wanna self destruct the company.
kinda nostalgic about money made there
Sometime I really dont understand, why big company like to destroy their 'HOT' asset like that.
Do they really have brain to think that logic?
Their current interface is too plain and really mess up.
When I login into my account i get confused, where i'm suppose to see all those listing page?
You will have 2 different accounts inside single website. That does not make any sense for single purpose.
I'm a domainer. Recently I visited Flippa and was disappointed with their design. Not only domains and websites, they have introduced many other things. I heard Flippa admins/mods were involved in insider bidding, especially on domains and inflating the value. There were huge uproar among domainers community. The site is going down fast and domainers are moving away. No more quality domains found there. I don't know about site flipping. But I'm disappointed with them.
Also I had same issues with flippa. I think its over now? Any alternate suggestion?
Not entirely true since I have 2 accounts on Flippa, it was an issue but i explained the situation.. The rep. Josh i think said he marked the accounts that 1 household is using 2 and thats that. Using both from same browser always.. Since that rep seems to be gone now, not sure how long it will last.. Flippa is full of new ones and the names i dont recognize, Probably came with the new CEO.
I obviously can't prove it but i think that the so called "market crash" was a self-generated issue where they made extremely difficult for buyers to explore the sites listed for sale.
For whatever reason they made it so unpractical that as a long time user, it was hard for me to navigate around to find my own listings.. if it was complicated for me, how complicated it is for a new buyer?
Why i think it was self generated issue is because they now launched the new monthly service, where you need to pay them to get the latest info on the auctions and listings.. If you break the service down, you see it's completely useless.. They want 250 USD per month from buyers to recommend them some auctions based on the buyer preferences... before you could just use the search option for that.
Same goes for the support.. They disabled the option for you to hide any listings that you have sold, you need to purchase priority support to do that in a timely manner.. These are all self generated problems that they offer to solve if you pay to them.
EmpireFlippers will take the lead in here or already has and their rep. is present on this marketplace as well.
95% of content websites get abandoned in the first year or two but those people don't sell on Flippa anymore. I miss those people.
Whats wrong with flippa? I’m new to it but it seems to be ok to me.
Back when most of us used it, navigation and overall UI was much easier to use compared to now. Not to mention they hiked the price to list on there to $200 when before it was like $29 or something like that. It just sucks now (what I think personally).
Oh, I thought I was the only person facing this problem. Everyone is getting in trouble with their updated layout. This is weird.
I hated it so much I sent about 4 complaints into them from different email accounts.
I've no idea the idea behind the change. It's shocking how wrong they got it.
the email replies I got all said to go to flippa.com/search
Sama to.. i can't search website established now!
The glaringly sad thing is, Flippa IS NOT listening to sellers or the buyers.
Since this quote, "update" I've had to contact support at least 2 dozen times.
Flippa is starting to remind me of how Yahoo ruined the Yahoo Forums and are now ruining Tumblr.
