General description

Retro Sales is an Australian retro video game store specialising in used games, consoles and accessories for retro gamers.

We have the physical inventory and focus on the huge Australian market with attractive prices in Australian dollars. This means our customers keep coming back as we are often way under our competitors prices. Being local with local inventory means we have lightning fast shipping times (2 days on average) with local warranties for piece of mind for our customers. Our ever expanding worldwide customers can enjoy shipping rates via Australia post. All shipping rates are automatically calculated with our integrated Australia post price feed on the backend.

Our suppliers are based all over the world, but with some throughout Australia. The full list of suppliers and product details will be shared with the buyer and explained where necessary.

We brand ourself with the moto "Pay less, play more" which is what we really try to achieve with every customer and relationship. There's no point charging the earth for a product if the custom doesn't feel like they got a deal as they they will never come back. Our pricing model guarantees the customer walks away with a pleasant and friendly transaction and feels good about the fair price he paid. That typically results in them pasing on our name to his friends and business grows from there. Our customers are happy and nearly always return and make us their go to place for retro gaming products.

We source or inventory from local and overseas supplier and generally buy in larger quantities to keep the expenses on our end low. We can then pass on the savings to our customers.

Retro Sales is built on Shopify with customised graphics and front end. Part of the back end has been customised for smoother operations such as payment gateway integration, worldwide postage prices, backup and restore, tracking and SEO and marketing strategies such as social proof.

We've invested heavily in SEO and organic Google rankings so we no longer need to spend a cent on advertising. All of our traffic is organic and has a wide reach all over the net for a vast array of retro gaming keywords. We continue to grow on a daly basis and only minor maintenance is required to keep the store running at it's peak. Rest assured there is no hidden costs behind our success such as expensive Adwords campaigns or other paid promotion. This is an honest business with all the heaving lifting to set something like this up already complete.

We are the go to brand and name Australians and now worldwide customers are coming back to.

Why should someone buy this store?

This store is a turn key solution, meaning all the hard work of setting up a retro gaming store is done. There's a lot of work that goes into making this happen before you can sell a single game. Branding, domains, website, advertising, SEO, inventory, suppliers, etc

How can the future owner improve the business?

The vision for Retro Sales is to move into a classified model where members are encouraged to list their items directly for sale on the site with little to no fees. This is in contrast to the existing marketplaces like eBay where exorbitant fees are charged on all sales. We strongly believe this approach coupled with the existing brand name of Retro Sales will see huge potential growth and dominance in the retro gaming marketplace.
