Hey All,

I used to use Flippa to flip starter sites I would make and sell for $70-$100 dollars, I would sell about 8 a month just to earn some extra money. I stepped away about a year ago but was thinking of starting again... until I read some Flippa reviews.. Prices gone up to $19.00 to relist, then sales percentage, paypal, etc etc. On top of that there customer service has apparantly gone pop!

Does anyone still use Flippa- is it worth giving it another go?


Rob

    I hate these "is .....dead?" type posts.

    It is the reason so many people procrastinate and don't get things done.

    Read the post suggested above and then just get on with your business and stop worrying about what other people are saying.

    I think it's definitely starting to die. The price increase was a big nail in the coffin in addition to the awful quality of websites there and the scammers.

    I'm a super seller there with 6 figures in sales. I can tell you my experience there has diminished over the last 2 years. Buyer quality has diminished and customer service is definitely not as good as it once was.

    The problem is it got ruined with people saying they were making $x/week with a site and it was all fake income.

    Hopefully it'll recover in the future.

    Flippa still works but not the way it was before. You can give it a try and you have to work hard and have to apply different strategies. Thanks :-)

    I use flippa almost daily. Every night i scan through domains and sites. But to be honest with you i hate all the Turnkey sites listed there. All filled with plagiarised content.

  • I make a good extra income from Flippa, my first dollar I ever did online was on Flippa,I think Flippa is not dead, they are trying to kill starter websites in their market. When you pay 19$ to list a starter site, and you sell it for 50-60$ + success fees + Paypal!! where is your profit?
    Flippa is still good as it was, but you need to apply several strategies and try to get some traffic to your projects and maybe some tiny income at least to show your prospects and end users some hope and potential so they can bid on your listing with some confidence. Also be careful about picking good domain names, and good design can help you get more bidders and account watchers. Be aware on what time you end your auction, avoid the weekends. Use good BIN price strategies ...
    I think Flippa is still a good place to make a good income, it depends on how you work there. Also, at the moment, there is no serious competitor for them on the market
    Have a good day

    Flippa is not dead but it seems to be getting a reputation, of late, for having an awful lot of worthless websites on it (like the ones it seems you were building and selling). People who buy websites have become smarter and are looking for websites that actually make money - not that have the potential to make money. People have also started doing better due diligence and are not falling for the fake screenshots of earnings.

    EmpireFlippers is on the rise because they do some pretty extreme vetting before any website can list with them. Buyers feel much more secure when they know the site and the profits are really what people say they are.

    It died for me a while ago. I was selling PLR sites on Flippa years ago and they sold like hot cakes I was making my first money online but then selling PLR sites just died off for me. There were more PLR sellers and people got wise to the fact that they weren't buying unique sites that they probably thought they were buying a one of a kind unique site even thought he listing said it wasn't unique. But I still do see a few people still selling PLR sites and blogs. But it's not completely dead, just go over to Flippa and go through the just sold section to see what type of sites are selling nowadays. If you have the ability to create easily and cheap the kind of sites that are selling then you can get in on the Flippa profits.
