Business Story

Why this business was started

We are big fans of enjoying time with friends and family in the backyard enjoying some BBQ and beverages. Our store features a range of high-quality, American-made products that enhance this patio lifestyle. It is a very hands-off dropshipping business with minimal customer service effort and great supplier relationships.

The reason of selling this business

We are ready to move onto something new with everything we learned from building this store, our first Shopify venture and first time doing dropshipping or eCommerce. We have struggled to make much of a profit but this is a great store for someone who knows what they are doing in terms of building an ecommerce brand.

What's involved in running this business

It's very minimal. We do daily-ish Instagram posts, the occasional email blast, and the occasional Facebook post. Each week we monitor and update our negative keywords in our ad campaigns. We also have written blog posts historically. There is minimal customer support or questions from customers. When we get an order we place it via email with our suppliers. Very easy process.

This business was founded: over 3 years ago

Other details about profit: We've way overspent on ads trying to chase sales, so haven't profited much. For 2018-into 2019 it's around $500/month average. The earlier years were less than that.

    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.
