    I've seen these where people build sites, put products to sell on them, then they sell.
    I have a ton of questions on this such as who's products are they etc..

    Can someone please explain this to me.

    Can be your own products, products from Amazon, or products from any online shop that has an affiliate program, or you name it.

    Are you familiar with the affiliate concept?
    You can sell on your website products that are not yours. The owners/service providers offer you an affiliate account and you can sell the products. You earn a share and it is the service provider who take care of eveything.
    You have also for example Clickbank and Comission Juction as huge affiliate websites.

    Site flipping is about buying or building websites then selling them. That's all.

    The specifics of the monetization of each site have nothing to do with flipping.

    Someone explained it well earlier. As an owner, you can create a site with products you sell and sell the site to someone else to sell those products. Basically, it's affiliate marketing.

    Correct?
    I, as an owner however, own the products so if I sell my website to someone else, how do they ship the product out?
    Thats where I get confused unless it's strictly as an affiliate then I understand it.

    Site flipping is finding a site, either sold off or near dead, making it into a far better site and using it for whatever means you want to use it for. You could use it to sell products like everyone here has said already, or you could do just about anything with said site.

    This is funny. I would say forget about the monetization of the site mrsCinderella. Site flipping as said is buying a site, improving it so as to add value and selling it for a profit.

    Since you are so transfixed on the goods and products. Then your almost selling an entire business and you will work out the details during the purchase process such as providing supplier list for products etc. this would over complicate things and as such rarely seen in site flipping.

    You come with a unique idea and you implement it on a site using some PHP script or WP.You bag some money,while you selling it to somebody interested in that.Its easy as that.
