Got questions? We’ve got answers.
To accept or reject a website for listing is always a tough decision. We receive many types of sites on a daily basis. However, to help maintain the quality of our platform, we have designed a basic criterion for choosing the websites.
At this time, we are only accepting well-established content websites, Adsense and affiliate websites, eCommerce, Amazon FBA, dropshipping, Apps and SaaS based projects with a significant amount of traffic, users and revenue.
Being a leading marketplace for websites and domain names, we work hard to maintain the quality and ethics of our service. Our aim is to present high-quality and authentic sites in front of our buyers. As a result, we can’t accept all the websites submitted to us.
To help improve our selection, we carry out a rigorous screening process where we examine the quality of a particular site. We don’t allow the following websites on our platform:
• Fake or spam websites.
• Websites that have no organic search or revenue.
• Websites with less number of visitors per month.
• Websites with duplicate content.
A selling price is concluded based on the entire assets of the website. Sometimes, it also depends from listing to listing. However, in general, all following things below will be deemed as part of the sale unless specified:-
- Website Domain name.
- All website content and files
- Associated hosting accounts (if applicable).
- All customer lists (if applicable).
- All marketing materials.
- Associated Affiliate/Ad accounts.

We work very hard to present a user-friendly website marketplace. Our aim is to meet the basic needs of buyers who are registered with us. Thus, to help keep the quality of service, we have designed a set of rules for the sellers. We expect all sellers to agree on these rules. These rules apply to the transactions made or activities done on this platform. We don’t permit the following activities on our platform:
Not completing the deal:- If both buyer and seller have signed the Asset Purchase agreement and payment is secured at escrow.com, it is solely your responsibility complete the deal from there on.
Breaking Exclusivity terms:- You shouldn’t break our exclusivity terms and list your website on other platforms as long as it is listed with us. You must not list your website for sale at two brokers simultaneously. We demand very minimum exclusivity time and expect sellers to respect that.
Failure to keep updated information:- When you list websites on our platform, then it is your responsibility to update the information regularly. You should update the website details such as monthly visitors, regular visits per month, revenue reports, etc.
Business value is usually determined by many factors which includes business age, revenue numbers, traffic, email lists, registered users, cash flow, current market trends and how quickly a buyer can get his return on investment.
