Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this site in late 2019 in the belief that we were entering a new decade where sustainability would be at the top of the agenda. As I'm updating this page at the start of July 2020 obviously a lot has changed, but I firmly believe that as we start the slow road to recovery after Covid-19 we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change our relationship with nature and I want to do what I can to raise awareness about this vital issue.

The reason of selling this business

I have relocated to New Zealand so am looking to sell my business to someone who will be able to run it from the UK.

What's involved in running this business

The business fulfils orders for physical items placed on the website. Running the business involves activities ranging from researching and ordering stock from suppliers, publicising products on social media and the website, and fulfilling orders from customers.

This business was founded: almost 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 20 hours per week

Other details about profit: Profits have been low recently as I have relocated overseas. However the appeal of purchasing this business is that it is ready to go and the new owner will have stock to sell from day one with a website that is set up and has all products listed. There is also the opportunity to sell stock outside of Shopify at local markets, etc.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Interest in sustainability is on the increase so the potential market will increase naturally in the next few years. To capitalise on this I would continue to focus on linking sustainability to saving money and being good to the environment.

    Skills to have

    As an e-commerce store, the skills and knowledge required to run the business range from negotiating with suppliers through to marketing products (often through social media). Some knowledge of sustainability would be advantageous too given the nature of the product range.

    I’m Matt, and I’m the founder of Buy Sustainably. I’ve had a longstanding interest in environmental matters and have been lucky enough to visit some amazing places around the world. I started this site in late 2019 in the belief that we were entering a new decade where sustainability would be at the top of the agenda. I have now relocated to New Zealand so am no longer able to run a UK-based business.

    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.
