Re: Whats happened to flippa?

We didn't get rid of it, the process is just a little bit different. Go to flippa.com/search and select "won listings", then add your other criteria for the search.

You can set a reserve price (https://support.flippa.com/entries/21899261-What-is-a-Reserve-Price-) for your auction. If bidding doesn't reach the reserve, you're under no obligation to sell.
