Why this business was started
We wanted to conveniently cater to 2 niches: sex toys (for both men and women) and lingerie, for women of all shapes of life, at affordable prices.
The reason of selling this business
-Low conversion because of Shopify payment methods and most payment gateways like Stripe,PayGate, 2Checkout being unavailable in our country, thus unable to charge using credit/debit cards and having to rely on manual payment options despite targeting, store and social media engagement being towards and majority from the US/UK/Canada and most of Europe and having many abandoned carts and checkouts -We've also exhausted our overall budget since PayPal has some of our payments on hold. -We also failed at Facebook advertising since we started a second account to create a page without knowing this goes against Facebook's policies and got banned

How to grow this business
This store has gained lots of organic engagement within its first few months both on our social media pages and internally on the store without any paid advertising and without Facebook so we'd definitely advise incorporating Facebook advertising, running paid Instagram ads and twitter ad campaigns as well and our biggest challenge because of location, incorporate easily accessible payment methods.
