4. Safe payments

Flippa offers a number of ways for you to make or accept payments such as through PayPal, wire transfer, or an escrow service.

Using an escrow service is the best way to complete a transaction safely and securely. The escrow provider acts as a trusted third party who will secure the funds until the website assets are successfully transferred to the buyer.

Flippa recommends Escrow.com as a reliable online escrow service to shield buyers and sellers and ensure a smooth transaction process. All Flippa users enjoy a discount for Escrow.com fees – just click the “Start Escrow” button to get paid with escrow.

5. User feedback keeps everyone honest

All Flippa users get to provide feedback on buyers and sellers they have done business with. A feedback score is prominently displayed on buyers’ and sellers’ profiles, as well as all of sellers’ listing pages.

Sellers who have achieved a high positive feedback score over a number of transactions have demonstrated their ability to consistently deliver a high quality product and delight buyers with extraordinary customer support.  A buyer’s high positive feedback score indicates that the buyer is a pleasure to do business with, and is a great sign for sellers.

If a user feels that someone is violating Flippa’s rules, he or she can easily report a listing and  reach out to Flippa’s support team. This helps the Flippa community remain honest, trustworthy, and enjoyable for everyone.

More to come!
