We’ve been hinting at our latest project over on Twitter, and we’re ready to share a major change that’s going live on Monday: a top-to-bottom improvement of the Flippa listing process.
Why is our new listing process better?
- Increased chance of sale. With our new listing process, we ask you for exactly the kind of information that buyers use when searching for websites. This means you’re more likely to appear in relevant search results.
- Fewer steps. You can now fill out a Flippa listing in 50% fewer clicks using our new listing process. We did this by automating several aspects of the listing creation — for example, we automatically detect how your site is implemented and add the relevant information to your listing.
- Easier workflow. Our new listing process is much easier to navigate: we take you from the first step of entering your site’s URL right through to setting it live. If you’d rather skip ahead, that’s fine too: your listing will be saved in your drafts no matter how much information you’ve filled out.
Plus, as you’ll see below, the new process is much more aesthetically pleasing. Creating a listing is so quick that you won’t spend much time looking at it, but we think it’s much nicer than its previous iteration.
When you begin your listing creation, we’ll ask you for some information about your site, and make some suggestions for your listing, including a descriptive title and an optimal listing duration.
Astute sellers will notice a few things missing from the listing creation process: we no longer ask upfront for a Buy It Now price, for payment methods, or whether your content and design are unique before your listing is live. You can set these once your listing is live.
Stay tuned for the new listing process’ launch on Monday!
