The "revenue" question actually relates to how much the site is making presently, not whether or not it is expected to generate returns in the future.

Cookie-cutter AWS sites are a dime a dozen and the types of buyers that this forum attracts will demand more than vague promises of future income. If the site is generating meaningful returns at present, you could certainly find a buyer here in the price range you've stipulated. If not, any one of the talented geeks on this board could replicate a similar AWS site within a couple of hours and save themselves $10,000 in the process.

For your benefit, then, please disclose how much revenue the site has generated on average each month during its brief existence. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Czar well yes you are correct it does use some aspects from AWS however it doesn't reply totally on it, there is a price comparison aspect that compares 15 of the top bookstores. As I mentioned in the previous post the revenue is n/a to be honest it is something like $20, I would assume as i am sure many others would it will pick up now the SE's have the site indexed and if someone has time for marketing I am sure it would be much greater than that, I work in the industry and know the possibilities for a book PC, I just wish I had more time. Please let me know if there is anything else I can clairfy

the comparison feature is nice, but 10K is alot for something that doesn't have any revenue or hasn't been marketed.

have you considered selling the comparison script for others to include in their existing sites?
