Why this business was started
I started this business in this niche because I saw a big demand for not only jewelry and impulse buys, but also a big demand for metaphysical jewelry and objects. By providing great service, honesty, and an awesome experience, Around The World Gemstones sought to sell gemstone jewelry that was not only beautiful, but also to boost self esteem though metaphysical ideas. This drop-shipping website was also created with the intention of providing me with passive income to fund my passions that include helping society through sustainable agriculture. I greatly enjoy sales and internet marketing, as I have always been a competitive person and good with computers.
The reason of selling this business
I have other business ventures that I am much more passionate about and I believe these ventures will lead me closer to achieving my goals. I have learned much about running this type of business, and it's mostly brand building through modeling. I am not interested in this.

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.

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.
