You Can Now Negotiate on ANY Unsold Auction

7

We’re excited to announce a landmark change to the way Flippa works.

As of today, you can negotiate with a seller to buy anything that was listed for auction that didn’t find a buyer. Previously, when an auction ended unsold, the seller could only negotiate with the highest bidder for a week after the auction ends. That’s all changed. Now any interested party can negotiate – no matter how long ago it was, or whether you participated in the auction.

If the seller is open to offers, buyers will now find a ‘Make an Offer’ button to use on the listing page. This gives the buyer a direct line to the seller to negotiate and agree on purchase price.

This removes a major barrier to sale on Flippa, and shows that we’re committed to facilitating the sale of your digital asset, whenever it happens – either at auction or afterwards.

Sellers, for no extra fee you now have the ability to negotiate with all interested parties to make a sale post auction. You can either initiate a negotiation with them, or let them approach you. In short, we’ll keep hanging the “For Sale” sign on Flippa for you, until you let us know otherwise.

If you have any questions, leave us a comment!

    This is great!
    But, where can I find the button for “Make an Offer” for my listing?

      Hi Reem, I can take a look at this if you email me at tim.cooke@flippa.com with either your auction ID or username. Thanks!

    Now almost every auction has “Make an Offer” instead of price. Can you please display the price and “Make an Offer” below?

      Hi Marin, thanks for the feedback. We’ll be looking at this going forward!

    I’d like to see a “fire sale” page listing sites that nobody ever bid on and web masters want to dump.

    How do we know which ones were unsold at the end of their auction?

    • timatflippa

      Hi,

      Unsold auctions will say this on the listing page. Auctions that ended with a winner will have the final sale price in green.
