Why this business was started
I decided to start this business to make some income apart from my regular job. The idea would have been to transition from working a full time job to operating this store as a full time home business. Being able to work from home allows more time with family and friends and no need to spend time commuting from home to work each day.
The reason of selling this business
I have decided to sell this business because I believe someone else will be able to make a success of it better than me. In the end I was unable to dedicate the time to get it fully functioning because of my work commitments.
What's involved in running this business
It is a fairly simple business to operate. All it takes is a few hours per week to promote some of the products on Facebook, for example, then when someone places and order you fulfil it and so on. There is no shortage of training online available for beginners, so as long as you have some spare time to dedicate to it you can be successful.
This e-commerce business was created a just over a year ago. It also has a custom theme rather than a standard one. It is a collection of personal products for women and men such as jewelry, sunglasses, handbags, manbags, watches, swimwear, and shapewear for women. These product lines can easily be changed, varied, and or expanded. The store is set up as a drop shipping store using Oberlo to source the products. A wide variety of products available for dropshipping purchase have been imported into the store. These can easily be added to or deleted as required to suit your needs. The main suppliers are in China from the Alibaba/Aliexpress platform. The majority of the products listed get delivered by e-packet which is the most efficient way to go. No physical inventory is held, though there is no reason to stop you from doing this if you desire. This business would suit someone seeking a shopify store that is already set up. All it needs is an enthusiastic person with a little marketing knowledge to make it successful. The main reason I am selling is because I haven't had time to dedicate to it to get the marketing working. The [REDACTED] domain will be included in the sale of this shopify store. Some of the apps used in this shopify store include Aftership, Free Shipping by Hextom, InCartUpsell by Awesome Software, Oberlo and Kit. These are all included with the store and can be kept or deleted as desired.
