I tried to analyze how to price and profit from my flipping business. And here is what came up.
The capital and expenses of flipping websites are domain purchase, flip listing, auction success fee and paypal service charge. The domain cost can go from $1 for unpopular domain extension to $11 for extension like .com. The flippa listing is $19, its re-listing is $9. The auction success fee is 15% and the paypal service fee is 2.9% of the amount plus $0.03. At this time, I do not count the labor as expenses, I’l just treat it as a normal job where I get paid from my labor to my profit although I know this was not right.
Therefore profit equals sold auction price less domain purchase less flip listing fee, less success fee less paypal service charge.
For $97 auction price
If I go for a .com listing and the auction price for $97, my profit is $49. This is 100% ROI, and a decent income if you are living in the Philippines. If you sell 1 site per day, then that’s $1470 in a month, more than a monthly salary of a typical manager in my country.
If I go for a $1 domain name and the auction price of $97, my profit is $59, that’s over 157% ROI.
For $127 auction price
If I go for a .com listing and the auction price for $127, my profit is $74, that’s over 138 ROI
If I go for a $1 domain listing and the auction price for $127, my profit is $83, that is 195% ROI>
Where can you get this kind of ROI fast? One is by domain flipping.
Since the relisting fee is only $9, with no other expenses with the above profits, I can still afford to relist 4 times and not losing.
What is my Profitable Strategy:
Strategy: Aim to build and list to auction 2 to 3 websites a day. Try to develop flipping inventory of websites until I can afford to flip 2 to 3 websites in a month without repeat. Then go another cycle for the succeeding months.
