Business Story

Why this business was started

Wanted to start a profitable dropshipping business to learn how ecommerce works. I wanted to choose a niche that was not cliche or oversaturated with an extremely high level of competition (such as dogs or cats). This led me to the Teacher niche where I marketed my jewelry specifically towards Teachers. I was able to scale the business during peak season to upper 5 figures in monthly revenue. It provided an tremendous opportunity to learn how dropshipping works, but also to learn how to run a high revenue business as well as the marketing of that business.

The reason of selling this business

As the business grew it became more time consuming and my passion was not in selling jewelry. The company was successful at generating some capital to pursue some of my other interests in real estate, and other ecommerce digital products. I would prefer to dedicate my time to these instead, because they can provide more of a long term passive income with very little involvement needed from myself.

    Seller‘s Advice

    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.
