Why use Exchange?

Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

Verified listing data

The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.

Secure messaging platform

You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

Encrypted payment capture

Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

Take time to inspect the business

Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.

Safe store transfer

When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.

Post-purchase 24/7 Shopify support

Once you log into your Shopify account for the first time and choose a subscription plan, Shopify Support Gurus are available 24/7 to help you with the settings of the store.

How it works

Learn about the fastest growing community of thousands of entrepreneurs

  • Seller lists business

    Exchange uses uneditable verified Shopify sales data, owner-reported data, and market trends to suggest a valuation price. The seller is free to use the suggested price or set their own as a starting point for negotiation.

  • Buyer & Seller Communicate

    Buyers and Sellers can communicate through a secure messaging system to share their business context, history, and future opportunities.

  • Buyer sends offer

    A Buyer makes an offer to buy the business with the price they are willing to pay. Upon offer acceptance, Buyer and Seller begin the payment transaction through Escrow.

  • Secure Store Transfer

    Exchange Support securely transfers the store to the buyer and the seller receives the funds from Escrow.
