Seller's Notes

PLEASE NOTE: I have uploaded a new financial spreadsheet, which has significant difference from the numbers given earlier. The main difference is that I have zeroed out most of the Credit Card numbers, since we had problems with credit cards and had mostly turned them off after March. The numbers I had been provided earlier by my guy had taken the last 12 months BEFORE we turned the credit card off, not the last 12 calendar months. In any case, as I mentioned in the listing, I recommend you evaluate the site on traffic and member list and earlier numbers and not current financials. The ad revenue numbers should be reliable. Before March 2016, CC revenue was in the $500/month range.

Profitable File Sharing solution in a box

You are bidding on a turnkey profitable File Sharing site with over 50K uniques/month, and about 120,000 page views a month. This site was much bigger, with over 1.5 million page views and nearly half a million uniques a couple of years ago. However, it is profitable and current levels and ready for some time and attention for growth.

Also, very rare for a File Sharing site, it is AdSense approved, though we have not really optimized that part. We have included verified AdSense revenue just to show that it is working. It also comes with an email-verified list of 35,528 registered users that we have never marketed to or monetized.

We acquired a loss-making file sharing business and turned it into a profit engine by lowering server costs and increasing revenue by installing credit card subscriptions. We did a few things right when we acquired it but just have not had the time to market or grow it. It's become a neglected child and we want to trim our portfolio and allow some new energy to take this one over.

The site makes money through various ad networks and by paid credit card subscriptions.

Income now and potential for growth

You can keep the site as it is as a cash cow with very little work other than taking care of routine DMCA takedown requests (just delete content when you get a notice). But the real potential is marketing the site and growing the traffic, in which case the sky is the limit. We will tell you where to get very low cost servers to add on.

Given our low cost structures, you can also market more aggressively as a Cloud Storage offering and tap a big market.

Knowledge needed

You will need to be able to manage basic Linux servers or have a Network Admin who can. There is practically no work required to keep the site running, add we will transfer the entire server account so you can keep the server as it is (This is a big deal in file serving since there is a lot of data to move). Adding additional servers is also pretty easy but you do need to know how to copy files onto a Linux system and configure Apache/Nginx.

Low reserve, poised to sell

We have kept the reserve and initial bid low. This way you can show your intent by putting in a bid. We will share GA only with active bidders, just to manage our own time. 

Easy transfer

We figured out the best value in file serving and have an incredible server deal. We have also an separate server account so we should be able to transfer the entire account and server to you without any need to transfer files or install software.  You will of course need to have your own accounts for AdSense, other ad networks, and credit card processing/gateways. 

A lot of the business details will be shared only with the successful bidder to help them keep the competitive advantage of our knowledge. Also, we will not be able to spend time to teach you the File Serving business since we are selling this site due to lack of time. However we have a long 100% reliable Flippa history and you can bid with confidence on this genuine website and business. 

Caveats

We had some chargebacks and the Nov-Dec 2016 revenue may be showing higher than actual. Dec revenue is an estimate. Also there's some email sending problem on the server that I haven't had time to fix. 

I would discount last few months revenue. The site is being sold AS-IS. Use Google analytics (we will gladly share) to best evaluate the potential, PLUS the list of 35,000+ registered user which hasn't been monetized, but may not have time to account for up all the recent revenue figures given chargebacks etc.

Hi, just a couple of questions:

Are chargebacks a problem for you? What is your chargeback rate?
How many DMCA requests do you get each month on average?
Do you have any systems in place to prevent copyrighted or offensive material from being uploaded?
Are there any social media accounts included in the sale?

Thanks.

@Achtung Chargebacks have not been a problem, but we sometimes get hit by them when people try to use stolen credit card data. We only have a few DMCA requests a week.
Yes, there are keywords detection for offensive material and we take it down when anyone brings it to our attention.

@ebizenthu No, File sharing sites just evolve traffic based on content.
We have a dedicated server on a separate account just for unlimitzone and we will transfer that account to you so you don't have to move any data. This is a big deal when buying a File Sharing sites with Terrabytes of data which is a big hassle to move.
