Business Story

Why this business was started

I started PeopleWhoBike.com with the intention of creating a successful online brand and online store that catered to something I love. Creating an online social portal using the same URL was also attractive. The templates provided by shopify made it fairly easy to create the look and feel of the store. There are thousands of products available through oberlo and ali to feature in the PeopleWhoBike.com store at any time.

The reason of selling this business

While I am in love with the "People Who Bike" name and URL, unfortunately I did not take the time to develop a marketing plan and budget. I did keep the store active however I never promoted it in any way and therefor lost the passion and drive to see it through and develop into a prosperous and engaging brand.

What's involved in running this business

Focus, focus, focus. I watched several videos that warned not to bring on too many products when opening the store. I did not follow this advice and feel I got caught up in the minutia of choosing products instead of promoting the store/products.
Marketing, marketing, marketing. In the right hands and with some time and investment towards marketing, PeopleWhoBike has tremendous potential.

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.
