Business Story

Why this business was started

Before this business, my husband and I had started our first dropshipping store as a side business (alongside our 9-5 jobs) that was doing just OK when we decided to try another store in a different category and thought baby/kids clothes was a great option for return customers who are consistently in need of new clothes with growing kids. The store was an instant success, so we quickly decided to abandon the first store (which was in home goods) and focus our attention on this business. It continued to have such great success that we decided to leave our 9-5 jobs only 1 month later and run this business full time.

The reason of selling this business

We now have a 11-month old baby and are planning on continuing to grow our family and as the business continues to grow and have more success, it's requiring more time and attention than we think we have the ability to give it. The dropshipping space continues to become more competitive and as such, requires better ad copy, ad creatives, product differentiation, email and social media graphics and imagery, etc. in order to compete and stay relevant and growing as a business. We strongly feel that all of these things are incredibly attainable, but require more than we currently have the ability to give.

What's involved in running this business

On a daily basis, this business involves running ad campaigns through Facebook/Instagram and Google Shopping, finding new product through AliExpress, communicating with vendors on AliExpress, uploading products and fulfilling orders through Dropified, creating newsletters through MailChimp and posting content to social media. There are apps we use in Shopify that allow parts of the business to run itself: automated email notifications after orders have shipped through AfterShip, email collection through new customer pop-ups with Wheelio, automated ordering of trending products through Power Tools, automated product recommendations through LimeSpot.

Time to run this business: approximately 50 hours per week

Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

We have never taken the angle of using social media influencers to expand the business which I think is a gigantic opportunity to organically grow the social media following and get "free" website traffic and purchases. Additionally, we have narrowed our vendor list to a specific few vendors that we have slowly been trying to narrow our business to using exclusively which would streamline things operationally, as well as directly more business to a single vendor which gives massive increased ability to negotiate better cost of goods pricing and drastically improve profit margins.

Skills to have

We didn't have any previous experience in e-commerce so genuinely anyone can do this with a learning attitude and an ability to research when you don't know how to do something. There is infinite assistance on the internet about Shopify, Facebook advertising and marketing.

Why buy a business on Exchange

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.
