Business Story

Why this business was started

I am the owner of a pug and I noticed that whenever we are out walking him, many people smile at us and are interested to come and talk and pat him. I know that pug owners are very passionate about pugs, but also it seemed that there might be others interested in pug merchandise too.

The reason of selling this business

I have a new business idea that I want to move onto and start working on, and therefore I want to also use my cash to fund this new venture.

What's involved in running this business

This is a dropshipping business. We simply source products from Ali Express. The website has the Oberlo plugin which makes ordering easy - it imports customer details and fills out the shipping details for you etc.

We advertise on Facebook and have a Facebook page which we only worked on a small amount but has 90 followers, which we feel could easily be improved upon with more attention paid to building the page.

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

Other details about profit: More profit could be made if the time to understand the market, in terms of running facebook ads and what does/doesn't work could be pinpointed. Currently I do not have the time of the money to spend on this research.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would outsource for pug themed designs to make bespoke and branded products via teespring, alibaba etc, to carve a brand niche instead of just generic pug themed items from aliexpress.

    Skills to have

    A basic understanding of dropshipping and the ability to do some basic research how to use Shopify and Oberlo.

    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.
