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.

Build your future with a business in Chicago

Own and operate a Chicago company from anywhere in the world

Chicago is home to over 2.5 million potential customers, making it an ideal environment for small businesses looking to grow. There are a plethora of opportunities available for both new and experienced entrepreneurs, and a supportive infrastructure of B2B businesses to help your company flourish. Here on the Exchange Marketplace we sell both new and established businesses in a wide range of industries, including fashion and apparel, home and furniture, and electronics retailers. You can also find some service-based businesses, mostly in fields like digital marketing, for sale. Every business listed in our marketplace features a fully functional ecommerce website and at least one existing product line, so you can start selling almost immediately. You don't need to live in Chicago to purchase one of these companies, but there are some advantages to local purchases, such as tax breaks and other financial supports that are restricted to Chicago residents. You'll also be able to meet with the owner and conduct part of the negotiation in person. Some of the businesses for sale on the Exchange Marketplace also come with an existing physical stock; for these businesses we recommend local purchases, as this gives investors the opportunity to quality-check the merchandise.
