I have had a lot of fun running BTCDeals.com however it is starting to take up a lot more time than I have available which equates to a negative experience to the customer if I can't keep up with emails and orders in a swift and timely manner. The site is profitable, and a great following of customers who often make repeat purchases. I don't want to let it go and this is may not lead to a sale, but I am entertaining any legitimate offers if they are made.

This would be perfect for someone who has approx 8 to 10 hours a week available. As little as that sounds, working startup hours, commuting 3 hours a day and maintaining a married life does not easily afford me that time. This might be better suited for a single person, a college student, or someone who just can manage time more efficiently than I can.

What you would get:

  * The domain BTCDeals.com
  * The BTCDeals.com SSL certificate
  * The whole site's source code (PHP for the site, Perl for the automated emails and price updater)
  * The Amazon micro EC2 instance that it is running on that contains everything needed (site, db, scripts, bitcoind)
  * The mongodb database dump (of products and order history, past customer names and addresses would be stripped)
  * The Google Apps setup that hosts the email for BTCDeals.com
  * Some info on products, hints on maximizing your profits and other info
  * Support on the code and system for up to 3 months after hand-off

Details on actual profits, stats etc are available in PM for interested parties.

This is not going to be a quick thing or even anything at all - I will entertain offers, but in the end I might not sell at all unless it seems worthwhile.

If I were to sell, I would ideally want to sell to someone who is known in the community as at least being reliable. I have built this site up with a reputation to the customers and do not want to have it tarnished even if it's no longer mine.

To my existing customers - if I were to sell, IF - then all orders would be handled by me until a public hand-off would happen. I would support past orders after a sell off, and would not be passing your information on to the purchaser of the site except for leaving the order number and price paid. Address and name information would be cleared before handing off the site.

If anyone has any questions (potential buyers, or even concerned customers) feel free to shoot me a PM or via the contact form on BTCDeals.com or even in this thread... but please keep offers and talks about stats private.

Is this why the site is down?

How about you hire someone to do the data entry work?

I have no time for tech side of your site as far as programming, but I can make time to ensure orders are done.  I already see the name of BTCDeals being tarnished in other Bitcoin areas because of what seems to be the site taking a back seat to other projects or just whatever it is you need to do in life, which I understand and respect.

You'd have to give it to me in order for me to earn the money to buy it.  Unless it was that cheap, and by that, I mean I have about $20 to spare at the moment.

I might be able to bring a lot of e-Commerce help to the table to make it more attractive to just hold onto the site yourself and maybe expand.
