Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business because I wanted to generate a monthly income to allow me to break away from 'traditional' work. I previously was doing part-time teaching in the oil & gas industry, which involved a lot of tiresome travelling on someone else's terms. Ecom work such as this allows me to travel in comfort yet still manage my business any where in the world. The flexible nature of the working hours match my current lifestyle.

The reason of selling this business

  1. I want to start a different ecom business (in a different niche)
  2. I love new challenges - selling this business and starting something else excites me
  3. I want to raise capital
  4. I want to see the business flourish in someone else's hands.

What's involved in running this business

A. 1 hour a day answering customer emails (done by VA's) B. 20 minutes a day managing the Facebook fan pages (done by VA's) C. 1 hour a day on order fulfilment (done by VA's) D. 1-2 hours a day (sometimes more) on new product development

This business was founded: over 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 24 hours per week

    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.
