Business Story

Why this business was started

Being new to e-commerce we wanted a business that was easy to operate, had low start up costs and could be marketed to a small niche. The timing for this just so happened to coincide with the popularity of the Matrix movies and the growing demand for the glasses seen in the movie.

The reason of selling this business

Have been involved in e-comm since 2005. Time to move on.

What's involved in running this business

Business run's itself and is very low maintenance. We just fulfill orders and answer customer emails and keep a brief eye on our AdWords campaign.

This business was founded: over 4 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 1 hour per week

    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.
