    13. http://www.webmastersmarketplace.com.

    I'm sure there are a lot more, but right now this is all that comes to mind. I was considering making this a sticky. What do you guys think?

  • Very nice Fruit. Sticky would be excellent. We can add to the list as we go along and share our experiences further.
  • Yep, good work - definitely a sticky material.

    Just one thing to add: when listing your site on different marketplaces, always make sure that you don't break the rules of any marketplace. Flippa, for instance, only approves exclusive auctions and they take your auction down (without refunding you the fees) as soon as they notice the site being sold elsewhere.

    As a side note, I have always found Flippa will refund fees, even though their TOS states they will not.

    It's amazing what a well-worded email can accomplish ;)

    That applies for powersellers. And yeah, they've refunded me several times as well. (or given free credits, rather)

    But a mate of mine who hadn't done much selling on Flippa had his auction taken down because he listed estimated revenue (against the rules, obv.), sent a nice email to Flippa (I drafted it for him :P) and was quickly referred to the TOS with a polite rejection to wish of getting a refund.
  • As you well know mate, it's amazing what can be achieved by adding certain people on Skype. Never say never :P
  • Cant forget www.webmastersmarketplace.com.

    It's owned by a UK company (so I'm a little biased :) ) but it looks promising

  • Here a few I haven't taken out the ones already listed and it was from over a year ago so I don't know how active and might have some dupes;)

  • Moved to the tips & tricks section.
  • Any commentary on which are best for selling and/or buying? Obviously? DP is best for buying Flippa might be better for selling?

  • Might be worth adding in Ebay..
  • Ebay is a joke. Why is this a normal thread?

    Trinity

    Sure ... good for buying and reselling of websites for cool profits.
  • Thanks for this useful information. may I ask, is it possible to list the same website one wants to sell in about two(2) or three(3) market places like flippa and digital point/warrior forum

    Check the TOS of each site.

    Flippa require exclusivity when listing, so can remove it if they spot your auction elsewhere.

    DP don't mind.

    WF don't mind.

    So, it really depends on the individual site.

  • Saved this great list. Thanks, would be useful for me in the future. ;)

    These should be compiled into the KFS eBook if Trinity and droberts22 doesn't mind, crediting them of course.
