I started this, but, didn't complete it, because, health issues (for both my husband & myself), my volunteering & writing projects have taken priority. I felt, if I ever wanted to open a shop again, I'll just create another. I didn't want to keep paying on something I was no longer using. Because it's new, I didn't have much traffic & no sales. I believe it has great potential. It just needs someone who will nurture it. Maybe that will be you.
I volunteer with the kitties at the local shelter. I have a blog for lost/found/rescue pets & those needing to be rehomed /fostered/adopted in NorCal. I have a Facebook group for rescue/rehome & another for lost/found incorporating the counties in the area code 707. I started this shop, as it fit in with what else has been going on in my life, including, my husband & I working towards being able to get a home loan to buy a house where we could really do more rescue & adoption. Fostering as well, since, we've never done that yet. We live in a studio, so, only are allowed two kitties.
This store is for pet owners & animal lovers. It includes pet related items, such as, toys & supplies & animal themed items, jewelry & crafts, for example. It's yours now & of course, you're welcome to take it in any direction that you'd like. Whatever works for you. With the name, it would need to stay with pets. The pet industry will sell 60 bil in products this year. So, you should have many customers, if, you know how to market well or find someone with the skill to do it for you.
The apps I added are: Compass, Conversion Plus, Digital Downloads, Easy Contact Form, Happy Customers, Mail Chimp, Oberlo, Sales Pop. As I was just getting started, I didn't get to have too much experience with them. I was with Wholesale2B, but, that was a charge of $29.99. They did have a lot of different items pertaining to animals. They do have a pet category.

Why buy a business on Exchange
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
