Sellers can often fail to disclose vital pieces of information that will leave you puzzled when you’re consistently generating revenue, but have no money left at month end.

You the buyer, agree to buy a web application that unlocks iPhones. The site is making little revenue, but the price is justified by the software itself which is completely automated and a custom application, allowing you to generate a truly passive source of income.

Both scenarios result in the money being returned to the buyer, once they already have control of your domain and all your site’s files and data.
