I sold The Hack Stack :-)

I've successfully sold The Hack Stack using Flippa. Just wanted to say that I found flippa to be really good. Yes, you need to pay $15 to list but in my opinion this means that only serious products are listed, and this in turn means that serious buyers visit the site.

Thumbs up for Flippa and a recommendation from me.

PS I sold it for just over £1000 (U.K. pounds)

      LOL Someone downvoted you for this?!

      Anyway, thanks @channingallen - I guess I should have included this info in the post 🤓

      I'm upvoting you so that zero goes away.

        it's one of those eternal mysteries:

          Haha... go look at the database and see who it was. Please!

          Also, what is that a screen grab from?

            already did, but it wouldn't be fair of me to blab ;)

            Also, what is that a screen grab from?

              Haha I love that. I hope you feel silly now, whoever you are!

              Telegram, nice. I have a serious aversion to WhatsApp (or anything owned by FB) so I may check that out.

              Thanks again man.

    Congrats! Any interest in sharing what you sold it for? Super curious what products go for on flippa that have a good concept but not much usage yet.

      Updated the main post.

    Nice! I just signed up for Flippa and registered Just Launched. May do How to X with Y as well at some point.

    Really need to focus this year instead of being all over the place.

      Good luck with the sales.

    Congratulations @Primer! Flippa is all over the place but you do get good deals both as a buyer and a seller.

  6. 1

    Way to go, @Primer! Now that The Hack Stack is sold, are you working on something new then?

    1. 1

      No just going to focus on my primary thing which is SongBox.

      1. 1

        That's great! Keep hustling!

    How long did it take for you to sell?

    1. 1

      I listed it in flippa on a 7 day auction and that ended 3 weeks ago. It didn’t sell during the auction but it doesn’t vanish from the site.

      Someone came across it last week and completed the sale yesterday.

      1. 1

        So strange that they dont take it down. It's that a company policy? How did you ensure that the buyer didn't just run off with your code?

        1. 1

          The buyer pays before assets are transferred.

            Just had two more questions. Thank you for your time. 1. Would you recommend Flippa compared to the other website selling platform? 2. What was the stack under the hood of hack stack?

            1. 1

              Yes I would recommend it.

              The Hack Stack was built with Laravel.

            Thank you for the info.
