Business Story

Why this business was started

I saw the potential in the marketplace, as well as the need for professional on line diploma frame retailers. Many college and university stores do not market and promote diploma frame sales in their stores, leaving us all a great opportunity.

The reason of selling this business

My wife and I are getting older and we are looking to enjoy spending more time with our children and grand children.

What's involved in running this business

Receiving the orders on line, generating the subsequent purchase orders and then sending those POs to our manufacturer. EDI (electronic data interchange)has the capability of automating this process. Managing advertising campaigns, and customer service.

This business was founded: about 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 15 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    As an online retailer of diploma frames, I would continue to add college and universities not already offered on our site. In addition, you could also offer additional styles of diploma frames as they are introduced by our manufacturer. Social Media expansion would also be recommended. This is an ever growing industry!

    Skills to have

    This is a turnkey operation. Knowledge of Shopify, Quickbooks, Word, and some graphic management are required. We are willing to train the buyers at no cost for three months after purchase.

    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.
