General description

~~ SEMI-AUTOMATED SHOPIFY STORE // priced low for quick sale ~~

Hey! Thanks for viewing this listing. This is a hybrid dropshipping/inventory store with over $120k in revenue and a team of VAs to keep everything automated and running efficiently.


I am selling the store due to cashflow problems due to a reserve on my PayPal account (and waiting 7-10 days for Stripe payouts). The new owner will be using a new PayPal account and I'll provide guidance on how to avoid this problem. My plan is to sell the store and reinvest into a new one with some capital behind me (niche store so won't interfere with the success of this store).


This is the store's business model: Product research >> Import product to store >> Create product video >> Run ads to product to see performance >> Winner? Scale. Not a winner? Kill. >> Buy inventory for lower costs and faster shipping.

The biggest two factors involved here are finding the right products and having a sound knowledge of Facebook ads. My product researcher now knows exactly which products to look for and Alex handles all the Facebook ads (he has experience scaling single products to 6 figures a month and running ads for multiple other 6 figure monthly stores).

For reference, Exchange has given a valuation of $79,110.

Why should someone buy this store?

I have a great team of staff who all know exactly what they're doing and are able to handle the vast majority of the workload by themselves. If you want to minimise costs then a lot of this work can be done yourself instead.

These are the current staff roles: * 1x Customer support * 1x Head of marketing * 1x Product researcher * 1x Product importer/copywriter * 1x Video ad editor * 1x Order fulfiller (Aliexpress) * 1x Sourcing agent (finds products for lower costs inc. 5-10 day worldiwde shipping)

I currently communicate with everyone through a Slack workspace which has been great for organisation.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Simply by providing the capital to test more products, find more winners and scale them further. I'll be more than happy to work alongside the new owner to ensure that the store is as successful as possible.

What work have you put into the store?

We are currently using a fully customised theme worth $197 (Booster Theme 2.0). I've worked closely with Alex over the past 2 months and have made some serious changes to the backend and frontend that will increase conversion rate, greatly reduce abandoned checkouts and overall maximise the ROI from the paid marketing efforts.

Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

I would look to partner up with someone or take out a loan to solve the cashflow problem and fund testing new products. Just having some capital would be enough to help the store grow exponentially. Once Q4 is over, I would start looking into redesigning the storefront around a large product catalog with easier navigation and a better overall customer experience. Long term, it could be worth setting up separate stores in different countries (starting with the US, then moving on to Europe) and holding inventory in each of these countries for 1-3 day shipping, focusing on repeat customers.

Skills to have

It would be helpful to have some previous experience in e-commerce and dropshipping, however thanks to the staff this isn't necessary. The store would actually be perfect for someone who has some money to invest and is looking to get into ecom.
