How to provide video proof for my auction

Solution

It's now compulsory to provide proof of any revenue claims made on your listing.

The best way of providing proof is via a video walk-through.

This can be pre-recorded and added to your listing, so that potential Buyers can be confident to bid on your listing.

This article is split into 3 sections:

WHAT do I need to record?
HOW to record a video walk-through
WHERE do I add it, once recorded?
Remember, if you get stuck on this process, we're here to help! You can email us anytime at hi@hiwebby.com.


1. WHAT you should record

For Proof of Revenue:

You need to show yourself logging into any and all merchant accounts associated with the website you are selling. 
eg. If your site tracks sales with a CMS, but collects payments through PayPal, then the video must show you logging into both your CMS account and your PayPal account.

You also need to show us year-to-date (YTD) sales history and revenue (or longer, if available). It is not acceptable to provide just the past month. Buyers need to understand how the business has performed over time, to properly gauge what price to pay for it.
For Proof of Traffic:

You need to show yourself logging into the traffic analytics account used to track the traffic to your site. 
eg. if the site your listing uses StatCounter to analyze traffic, then you must show yourself logging into that account.

You also need to show year-to-date (YTD) traffic statistics (or longer, if available) once you are logged into the account(s). It is not acceptable to provide just the past month. Buyers need to understand how the business has performed over time, to properly gauge what price to pay for it.
