If I have a website and I want to sell it. Where I can suggest my site and start getting offers for it?
I've been looking around Google, but everything I found are paid programs in order to sell websites..
Anyone can recommend me on a good place where I can offer my website for sale?

You should try Flippa. It is part of the Sitepoint 'family' and gets lots of traffic.

Inevitably, if you are selling something, you must expect to pay a commission to the site or service that introduces you to the buyer. But the amount you pay is likely to be small, compared to the amount you are selling for.
I agree with Parkin that Flippa is a good place to start, if only because it's the market leader. They do charge a fee, but the fee is modest, and the charges are all clearly set out on their site.

Digital point is also a useful site for buying and selling web content/full sites etc. Otherwise flippa is there with good auction system

I'm iffy on flippa. it doesn't have the best reputation or should I say some of the sellers on it don't.
Personally I think that a lot of people know this and as such you cannot get a premium price for it.
As to alternatives , I really don't know. i'll bounce back soon as i'm looking at buying some niche sites and am also looking for a marketplace.

Personally, I've sold a website on Digital Point and another using Flippa. The one on DP got a BIN offer right away and the one listed on Flippa went through a nice bidding competition before it was sold at a price that I am satisfied with.
If I were to do it again, I would list my website on Flippa first simply because it is a well known marketplace. People visit Flippa to buy and sell websites so theoretically, it is much easier to get an offer if you have a solid website with a comprehensive listing. From my experience, I find that buyers on Flippa tend to ask informed questions too. On DP, which one of my websites was sold 3 years ago, I had people asking me what is the website running on even though I've kept the "Powered by WordPress" footer.
Hope my experience above helps.

A very helpful reply, Wayne. I confirms what I've always thought about Flippa.

Website broker might also be a good place to look...

Flippa and Digital Point are the leaders. If it was just a domain GD auctions work well for that. You can always do your diligence to find a domain or business broker who knows what they are doing to help you as well.
