    Do the 160,000 users actually have direct service from you, or are those just the users who visit the website to upload/download files?

    there are clean registered users, where their email is not bounching, total registered users are around 220,000 but many are fake, bounching, expired and so on.

    active users are around 17,000, meaning have logged in at least once for the last 45 days

    You are asking $50,000 ? It will take close to 70 years to make that money back and I will probably be dead by then or am I missing something if so please share it.

    Anyhow, good luck.

    Elias78, you may want to give a little more information in this thread to get some good responses, quick sums, 17,000 users using your service, $1,200 in per month means $0.07 each, which is a little low. (my sums are only based on what you have said)

    Therefore could you be getting extra revenue from ads etc and missed this off of the sum you mention?

    Just a thought to get you some valuable interest.

    Hi

    I think the best offer you'll get is something like 12 x monthly profit.

    Why not seek investment and build the business up, if you dont get the offer you want ?

    Also why do you want out ?

    Thanks

    It will help to justify the price if you mention that you are also selling the hardware.

    yes it does include hardware

    NoWiresLtd, the 12 month model is not accurate, here we are not talking about a reseller, just the infrastructure alone discounted at 60% is over $10,000.

    As for investment, it is hard, however not worrying much since the business is profitable already, so taking our time on that
    thanks for the tip, anyways

    Hi

    I understand what you are saying, but I think thats how most people will value it based on profit over x months. people want a return on investment.

    Good luck anyway. Its not my type of business...
