Business Story

Why this business was started

I started Rated Outdoors Coffee in 2017 to learn e-commerce with the intention of creating a brand that gives something back. I have spent in-excess of $25,000 on the branding. Before creating the Shopify store I used the brand for private labeling on Amazon. Last year the brand donated over $100k worth of inventory to onetreeplanted. I changed tacks with the business in 2019 - it's now a fully automated coffee company with coffee orders being fulfilled by dripshipper. Our merchandise is fulfilled by our print on demand partner.

The reason of selling this business

Unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that I don't have the time nor skills available to market the business. I would love to see it live on in some form.

What's involved in running this business

The brand really has the potential to take off if someone had the time and skills to market it properly. I have never run ads or conducted any SEO related services so there is plenty of opportunity for someone with the know-how to grow this into something huge.

This business was founded: about 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 4 hours per week

Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

The store ideally needs someone with marketing experience and the time available to grow the brand. I have come to the unfortunate realization that I have neither of these!

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.
