Just over a year ago, Australian-based Sitepoint relaunched their domain marketplace as Flippa. The change upset many of their brokers because along with the name change came pricing changes. Today the company announced a record week of domain name sales.
From the announcement, “It’s been a huge seven days at Flippa: over $1 million worth of web property has changed hands here in the last week! It’s a new sales record! And on top of that, we’ve passed $40 million of website sales for the life of the marketplace.”
While they can’t share many of the bigger private domain sales completed on Flippa, they did list several public auctions and topping the list was a resume sample site selling for $76,000. The average sale price was just over $2,600 during the week.
Flippa charges a $19 listing fee and a 5% final value fee up to $500. Similar to eBay, they have a variety of add-ons that range in price from $5 to $50. On the “they should include this free list”, Flippa charges $50 for a tweet to their flippa Twitter account.
