Business Story

Why this business was started

I started Dakota Collective as a marketplace for UK brands from emerging brands such as Neon Rose to already established brands like Motel. I also wanted to create my own exclusive line of nightwear for the site which was designed in house by myself and crafted from amazing materials. I also brought out my own evening wear range. Dakota Collective is a fashion hub for women to look good always, in all ways.

The reason of selling this business

Unfortunately I have no time to run this business any longer. Although I've had a great time running Dakota, I simply don't have enough hours in the day to give it the time and effort it needs.

    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.

    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.
