Business Story

Why this business was started

I started the business to learn about e-commerce and online advertising.

I am a senior executive of an international software company (happy to introduce myself if needed) and e-commerce has always been an interest of mine.

I wanted to learn about online advertising and website conversions, and this project helped me achieve that goal!

The reason of selling this business

The goals set out when creating this business have been achieved.

I never intended this to be a profit generating exercise, but it was! It would be a shame to lose the opportunity to make a good business out of it.

What's involved in running this business

Manual fulfilment of orders (this can be changed to be automatic with Oberlo.

Responding to customer emails (3 per day)

Monitoring advertising.

Corresponding with supplier (only 1!)

This business was founded: 4 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

Other details about profit: This is an average profit amount based in a full effort of marketing and development in month 1. In month 2 and 3 I slowed marketing spend due to a cost of shipping change. I switched the site from selling to the US to the UK and the performance remained the same. 30% margin after cost of products and ad spend.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    The shipping time-frame to the US is unfortunate.

    If I was going to keep this business running I would set up a fulfilment service FROM the US. The margins are great, it is realistic to incorporate the cost of a fulfilment service in the price of the product.

    80% of the effort spent on this business was in the first 30 days, where the business made 10k USD and a profit of 3k. Since then I slowed marketing considerably as well as website and ad development.

    Additional time spent on marketing will improve conversions and ad spend.

    Skills to have

    Customer service. Basic Shopify / Oberlo knowledge.

    I started this site with ZERO knowledge and used it to learn.

    Someone with more knowledge would make this a huge success.

    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.

    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.
