  1. 5

    Does bitsfordigits.com (partial buyouts) by @ JP Peters also qualify?

    1. 2

      I didn't know this one, it looks nice. Did you try it?

      1. 2

        Thanks for the shoutout @ToPe! Indeed, BitsForDigits is not meant for selling entire SaaS projects - but for founders who want to sell a piece of their business in either a minority or majority buyout.

  2. 4

    You also have SaaS brokers like FEInternational and Empire Flippers and they accept smaller (making low 4-figs/mo) sites as well.

    1. 1

      I didn't know about them, they seem to be very e-commerce oriented. Have you ever sold/bought on one of these brokers?

  3. 3

      Thanks for this awesome response! Did you allow me to take it and update my post with it?

      1. 1

        Sure, appreciated :D

    2. 1

      Totally agree, @DotMarket needs to be on this list!

  4. 3

    MicroAcquire has also many tools to calculate your valuation depending of the MRR

    1. 1

      You are talking about this one?
      micromrr.microacquire.com

  5. 2

    I am working on SideInvest.io where not only you can sell your project/startup but also receive funds

    1. 1

      Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it

  6. 2

    Great list! But how do you know when it's time to sell? That's what I don't get.

    1. 1

      It really depends on you, your goals and your needs

  7. 2

    Thanks for the MicroAcquire shout out Matteo!

    1. 2

      you are everywhere lol

  8. 1

    Cool story, Matteo.

    Did you try Microns.io. I'm the founder and would be happy to go through if you have any questions.

  9. 1

    Awesome list! Seems like MicroAcquire is the leader in the field at the moment?

    1. 1

      In terms of volume of transaction MicroAcquire is not the first but it is those who do the most promotion that target us. The biggest in terms of volume would be Flippa.com
