You can't just buy 20 shares of FB on there. See this quote from their FAQs:

Quote from: Sharepost FAQs
Q: Are there any minimum dollar amounts required for posting?

A: The minimum sales price you can post in a contract is $25,000.

They also charge a $1,500 escrow fee on top of a 2-5% commission.

I'm selling www.save-with.us

Its just the name.

Offers via pm.

IF you have an offer over regfee, I'd advise you to take it ASAP ...

Glad you think so, I've had pretty decent offers already.

I guess you not too well educated in this area.

There is a hyphen which isn't usually good, but needed in this case.

As always it boils down to how you plan on getting traffic. Hyphens work for domains targeting search traffic because google views a hyphen like a space, although a domain with a hyphen in search results will also get lower CTR's than without a hyphen.

Your domain is targeting the brandable market as you think it works for a collective buying site like groupon, but a Hyphen NEVER WORKS when you hope someone sees the name and remembers how to type it in...


Together with a few friends I have a domain profile of over 100 websites. I know a thing or two.

Trust Me, ELI knows more than a thing or two about domaining :)

Anybody know of a website thats for sale ?

Your best bet is going to webmaster and domaining forums, there are tons of private sales that happen every day there.

I would start with dnforum.com ...

you can also try flippa.com although that marketplace is competitive so not many good deals unless you have a value added opportunity like private advertising or affiliate deals, or some experts at conversion optimization...

The way I find domains is I look for undermonetized websites that have age and strong backlinks, and rank decently for high margin high volume search terms, but have simple SEO fixes that can easily double the search traffic. For example if it ranks for the root keyword but not for long tail keywords...
(i.e. it ranks for mesothelioma attorney, but not for mesothelioma attorney new york) and with simply adding an optimized local directory, I can eat up tons of long tail search traffic...

another trick is to run google searches with specific queries that a website for sale might have on the site (i.e. "this website is for sale" or "make an offer" or whatnot... you have to get creative...)

I'm not in the buying/selling world.

It used to be a webshop of mine, which was running ok, until my suppliers sold their company to others who decided to sell huge quantities only.

The big boom is gone, but if I bump in a just expired excellent .com name, I will buy it.

You are right, I forgot about that rule. I just decided that I would try to sell it but didnt think about the value yet.
I will update this post in the next few days with a price. Should I remove the OP?

He is, I've been following him extensively. I'm fascinated by the notion that he's only a week older than me.

It's that one week that made him all that extra cash!

Sorry I never posted a price. I am looking to make a deal where I keep a space for ads. Obviously it depends on the plan for the site. Please PM to discuss any details.
Open to any other offers/suggestions.
