I'll work on it. In the meanwhile here's a spreadsheet of the last request 24x+
You can play around with sorting by column heading.
The $2M didn't make it into the figures. The $600K auction ended mid-June so the spike in my image should give an indication of when the dispute affected the graph.

Well spotted! There are a lot of sites that Flippa claims as sold, but Flippa doesn't handle the transaction so doesn't really know and can't know. The most they can do when they publish their figures is provide a disclaimer explaining NPB and that their data is about "apparent" sales rather than real sales.
I heard a RUMOUR today that latona did a sweetheart deal with flippa, flippa get some great sites up for auction, and latona gets some free traffic without having to pay huge success fees. The source wasn't from flippa but works near sitepoint in melbourne.
I got out of bed today staring at a ghost. Who forgot to float away, didnt have all that much to say. Wouldn't even tell me his own name.
Non ducor, duco
On average Flippa sellers sell about $300K - $400K's worth of sites a week (according to Flippa's claims)
Have a look at Flippa's homepage today. In the last week they claim $407K's worth of sales, but the total sales figure has jumped by over $7 Million. What's going on, or is it just that someone needs a new calculator?
Are you able to see which buyers don't pay, or where they end up? It might be interesting to see where they all end up going. If not, I've seen a few sites that have scrapers that link websites by IP address/Google analytics/Adsense ID- it might be interesting to see if someone bought up a collection of "good" sites.
