Flippa blogs today about the tools they have which are often overlooked by sellers (and buyers)
If you are an infrequent user of Flippa I can see this post being of use to you if you are planning on listing a site.
I appreciate the improvements they have made in their search capabilities, and use the advanced search to check for quality sites often. If only they improved the results along with it...
I don't know what I think about allowing the seller to lower the reserve at the last minute, especially when many of them do disclose their reserve via PM. I could see unscrupulous sellers abusing that feature.
I did see that bit and wondered about it. But it also struck me as a way of catching out bidders who are bidding in the expectation that they'll be below reserve. They do this to keep the seller thinking they are interested and so he'll continue to provide data and stats when the reality is that they have no intention of buying.
Could you explain what form of abuse you see that taking?
I put in bids that I know are below the reserve when I am interested but the seller hasn't provided enough information, or for other similar reasons.
