    Most people go by the monthly value when buying or selling
    I haven't sold work for years since i sold my whole london round years ago but that was all monthly back then
    Maybe half the value of the 2 monthly work would be a fair option
    X3 or 4 is what i would call fair but some are selling at stupid rates nowadays

    Im a noob and have never sold a round but im going to answer anyway because i have a logical brain


    Ad all the monthly, bi monthlys, quartelys, two weekly, 6 weeklys, (whatever it doesnt matter) together into a yearly turnover and divide by 12. This gives you your monthly value.

    Then put it up for sale for as much as you think is viable, start at 10x and come down if you need to or if you are desperate to sell. Its like selling a car, you dont put it up for the figure you really want, you put it up far higher then reduce it until you start getting interest and then strike a deal.

    Like i said ive never sold a round or have any experience but it seems straightforward business to me.

    You sell for what you and the buyer agree on, going rate has nothing to do with it. Say for example of its all cash collection it lowers its value to me personally but to others it might increase it, i would pay top whack for a tight round round containing all online payments, easy access and good prices, but if it was all cash, council houses and poor prices it would be worthless to me. Someone else might revel in that type of round mind.

    good luck

    Monthly value is what it's worth to you. End of the day it's your business that you worked for
