Research on Flippa "competition", opinions needed

2 replies
Hey everyone long time lurker, new member here! I've read through most of the threads here that included Flippa as a keyword and while some of them were good, a lot of them were written by angry, frustrated and downright ambivalent sellers and buyers. There has been lots of talk about competitors and those that claim to be in the works of becoming their next big competitor but I'm a bit confused as to why they haven't asked outright what everyone would like to see in a competitor.

I'm sure that I will get lots of answers that include:
"It's impossible to compete you would have to have a substantial amount of money for marketing, staff, and etc.'
"They don't need competition."
"Everything needs to be changed."
"I love everything Flippa."
"They have all the buyers, no one else will be able to get them."

Let me make this clear, I'm not planning to become competition for Flippa nor do I know anyone who wants to be but as a buyer myself I see lots of things that could improve Flippa or even give competition a leg up I'm really just curious.

So spill everyone:
What do you love about Flippa?
What would you like to change?
What would you like to see in a competitor?

    I like the fact that flippa has lots of buyers.
    I really want the listing fees to go down.
    I would like to see cheaper listing and success fees in a competitor

    Hi arranrice!

    Thanks for the quick response. I agree with just about everything you've written and I'm sure others will have similar responses but I have a question for you. Do you think there should still be a listing and success fee or do you feel like Flippa is double dipping?
