Here's a simple little tip for anyone buying a website on Flippa:
If you spot an auction that says “x bids pending” you can use this little trick to win the auction by just $1!
To take advantage of auctions with pending bids, you should try to estimate what those pending bids may be.
For example, if the current bid is $1000 and there is 1 more pending bid, it would be reasonable to estimate the pending bid is $1050 (as $50 is the minimum bid).
Try bidding $1051.
Now, when both bids are accepted you will be the highest bidder by just $1.
If you waited until the previous pending bid was accepted, you would have to bid a minimum of $1100!
If you get outbid, just do it again.
This can save you a ton of money and allow you win an auction as cheaply as possible.
I hope that makes sense!
I also hope it gets you a good deal
