Business Story

Why this business was started

DeadToe.com was started to explore dropshipping in the Alternative, Goth, Punk, Occult and Steampunk clothing and accessory market.

This is a great niche to continue to explore as it has less competition than typical fashion stores.

This Shopify store uses the Shoptimized theme ($167 value) and offers substantial conversion features without additional costly apps.

The site has several products ready to go but we suggest adding even more products based on what is popular or even change the entire product catalog if needed.

The reason of selling this business

Deadtoe.com has major potential but we do not have the time to dedicate to growing this project. This store can really take off in the right hands and we hope to find someone who can take what we started and run with it.

We have received sales in the last month without advertising which means some of the social media and organic work we have done is starting to find traction. Would be a shame to not see it through.

What's involved in running this business

The store is based around dropshipping. Currently we are using Dropified to manage this but you could also switch it over to Oberlo if preferred.

As of now, we are not actively promoting the website but the more time you can dedicate to the store the more potential it has to succeed.

To run this store you need to process any orders through Dropified and follow up with customers.

Key areas to focus on are: Finding new products, refining current products, promoting the site on social media, enhancing product descriptions and titles to take advantage of organic search engine results.

Time to run this business: approximately 2 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.
