General description

I started this store because I wanted to try and fill the void left by the closing of Babies R Us but I simply don't have the time, unfortunately, to dedicate to this venture like I thought I would. I spent about an hour a day adding the products currently listed in the store. This is a dropshipping store, no physical inventory. I had social media accounts but due to a lack of effort on my part there wasn't much of a following so those accounts have been closed. I recommend choosing ONE social media platform that you are savvy with and run with that - I tried to do ALL of them and I think that was my issue. It's better to be a master of 1 and do really well with it than to try and spread yourself all over and not do particularly well with any of them. I have priced the store to sell quickly because I'd love to see the store really take off soon. Ultimately if all that's done is some better/focused marketing this store should do great as-is, but there's always room for improvement!

Why should someone buy this store?

If you are looking for a store that already has a decent amount of product listings then this site is for you!

How can the future owner improve the business?

Add more products, a bit more product research. Ensure shipping info is accurate and works best for you and your business goals. Focus on ONE social media platform that you feel comfortable with. Don't try and do ALL of them and risk not doing very well in any of them. Just choose one and get really good at that one platform. Once that's running smoothly, add another. I suggest starting with facebook, then pinterest, and then if you REALLY want to go for Instagram.

What work have you put into the store?

I have added products and categorized them to the best of my ability. I will admit I did not put as much time into this as I'd have liked. I found that I simply didn't have the time available to dedicate to the store as a result of me and my husband's opposite work schedules, having a toddler, and being pregnant. But there's a good amount of products populated and available to buyers on the website.

Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

    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.

    Jessica T.Running this business for 5 months
    Within the next few days I will officially be a stay at home mom with my own accounting and marketing business from home. My current (almost previous) employment is Assistant Chief of Accounting for my county government. I started this store because I love my kids and ever since Babies R Us closed I have just felt like there is a huge void in that market. I hope that whoever buys this store will be able to accomplish the goal of filling that void and I look forward to seeing what you do with it :)
