Frequently Asked Questions.

Does BitsForDigits charge any fees?

None. The marketplace is provided 100% free of charge.

Are company listings and capital profiles on BitsForDigits private?

Yes. All company listings and capital profiles made by sellers and buyers are anonymised, meaning names will not be externally displayed on the platform. Instead, unique identifiers are used to reference individual company listings and capital profiles.

Does BitsForDigits broker deals?

No. This is a contact medium that directly facilitates the exchange of phone number digits for bits of information. Of course, the aim is to indirectly facilitate the selling and buying of internet companies’ equity bits for digits on a check. 

Who can reach out to whom on BitsForDigits? 

Buyers can reach out to any seller about their company listing. Conversely, sellers can only reach out to buyers if their company listing matches their search criteria and if buyers have agreed to be contacted. 

Do business owners commit to selling their company by listing on BitsForDigits?

No. Business owners can list their internet companies without committing to anything other than to find out how much buyers are willing to offer. 

How does BitsForDigits put sellers and buyers in contact with each other?

The seller will have put down their preference for how they wish to be contacted by buyers, for example by phone. So when a buyer requests to be put in touch with a seller, we will provide them with a way to reach them, for example the seller’s phone number. Conversely, when a seller wants to reach out to a buyer with matching company search criteria, we will provide their LinkedIn profile.

How much information do I need to share publicly on the platform?

As a seller, you only have to share a brief description of your business, business model, product category and reason for selling. Company metrics are not mandatory but without them you will not be able to proactively reach out to potential buyers. Also, the more metrics you share on your listing, the more attention your listing is likely to get. Similarly for buyers, descriptions, expertise and experience are mandatory. Company criteria are optional and only used if you make your capital profile discoverable to sellers.

Which online businesses should list on BitsForDigits?

BitsForDigits is dedicated private internet companies of all sizes and categories including start-ups and scale-ups in SaaS, eCommerce, mobile, FinTech, content, crypto, agencies and, of course, marketplaces.

Professionals look for cashflow positive companies, meaning businesses that generate revenue, and founders can list as much ownership as they'd like to sell to connect with potential business partners interested in buying in to grow their venture.

Does BitsForDigits charge any fees?

None. The platform is provided 100% free of charge for founders and professionals with the aim of helping start conversations that lead to win-win deals. In the future we hope to offer paid premium services to further aid the buying and selling of business ownership.

Are business listings and professional profiles on BitsForDigits private?

Yes. Not a single business listing or professional profile hold any personal data on the seller or buyer on the marketplace. In short, all sign-ups are confidential and everything is anonymised when published to the platform. The founders have the chance to reveal their business' identify to a professional in the chat function if they choose to, but are of course not obligated to do so.

Does BitsForDigits broker deals?

No. BitsForDigits is a platform serving as a medium of contact between both sides of the platform to facilitate introductions and help start conversations that lead to win-win partnerships. That said, we want to grow our service offering to help facilitate the exchange transactions of online business bits for checkbook digits.

Does BitsForDigits offer help with contractuals and due diligence?

No. BitsForDigits does not yet hold the expertise to directly advise on case-by-case legal nor financial matters. We offer an infrastructure and a few resources to get help both parties off to a good start. All due diligence and legal questions are to be shouldered by the two transacting parties, and we always recommend seeking support from third parties such as lawyers and advisors.

Who can reach out to whom on BitsForDigits?

Vetted professionals can reach out to any founder with a listed business on the marketplace. Conversely, founders can reach out to professionals who have created a profile. 

Can digital assets be bought and sold on BitsForDigits?

No. BitsForDigits is not intended for full acquisitions of any type of asset, there are many other marketplaces for complete buyouts.

Do business owners commit to selling company stake by listing on BitsForDigits?

No. Business owners can list ownership for sale in their internet company without committing to anything other than finding out how much buyers are willing to pay. 

How does BitsForDigits put founders and professionals in touch?


Founders and professionals can engage in live chat on the platform. Of course, many choose to then switch to another channel such as email at their own discretion. Both founders and professionals will have to create their respective listings or profiles to be able to access the chat. This allows all members of the community to have an idea of who they are speaking to and helps us vet everyone before they get to message our users.

How much information do I need to share to get listed?

Founders of businesses need to share a brief description of their business, which kind of new co-owner they are looking for and reason for selling, plus a few operational and financial details. The more quantitative information is shared on a listing, the more serious professionals will be attracted and the fewer boneheaded questions they will have to ask. It's about attracting the right kind of attention and indeed the right type of buyer profile. Trying to hide details and leaving metrics blank to get more offers is a bad tactic as it wastes both parties' time. Buyers will always uncover the truth during due diligence.

Professionals will need to enter mandatory information including a description, expertise and experience.
