It’s hard to believe that 9 months have passed since BitsForDigits officially launched on Product Hunt and was nominated Fintech of the Year 2021 along with Carta and AngelList.
Since then, much has happened! Today, BitsForDigits is the only up-market acquisition platform for internet businesses with $100K+ in annual revenues. And after onboarding thousands of business owners and acquirers, we have marked the 1,000th direct conversation started between a buyer and seller of a tech startup on the Marketplace.
With the constant increase in messages being sent over the platform and some of the business owners getting overwhelmed with requests, we are finally announcing: BitsForDigits Pro.
From today onwards, we will charge acquirers a subscription fee to engage with owners on the platform.
Our pricing plans start at 399$ for a semi-annual membership and 599$ for an annual membership.
Charging a subscription fee will improve the platform in three very meaningful ways.
Intent. We want to guard sellers against tire-kickers so that only buyers with high intent can engage with business owners.
The fee will help filter out window shoppers, which increases the quality of conversations on the platform and in turn the number of successful acquisitions.
Exclusivity. Our pricing ensures that serious acquirers who pay for Pro are not competing for the same deal with hundreds of buyers on the basic plan at the same time.
Still, we want to make sure that owners get as many offers as possible which is why we have also made it possible to get Pro at a lower rate for 6 months.
Growth. The resulting revenue will finance further growth of the platform both in terms of more functionality and deal flow.
Every penny will be reinvested into making sure BitsForDigits will be the best platform both acquirers and owners could wish for.
As always, BitsForDigits will remain completely free for business owners to list and sell.
Acquirers will be able to contact owners on the Marketplace via direct messaging to negotiate full and partial acquisitions.
Additionally, they will receive an invitation to our private buy-side BitsForDigits Pro community Discord server hosted by us for acquirers to connect with their peers.
Acquirers joining BitsForDigits from today onwards will be prompted to choose a Pro plan upon making their profile after signing up.
Existing verified acquirers on the platform will receive an email with the option to upgrade to Pro, hassle-free.
