Business Story

Why this business was started

Had seen variable successes on a couple of past ventures in e-commerce using drop-shipping to service niches online. Ultimately saw the greatest opportunity in the live gaming space and wanted to provide agency-like services to establish endorsement deals for creators but saw greater need for under-serviced mid-sized streamers to receive merchandising services as a means to establish revenue streams for themselves.

The reason of selling this business

Moving into the next stage of my professional life and do not have the capital to properly scale at this time, but don't want to see it slowly shrink and disappear. I want someone to grow this to the next level.

What's involved in running this business

5-10 hours per month to maintain. Primarily accounting-based tasks monthly to distribute commissions owed to partners. Some social engagement, primarily on Twitter and Instagram. Up-keep with requests from partners wishing to add new products and designs to their pages.

This business was founded: about 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

Description

General description

Platform for Twitch Streamers and Youtubers to sell custom merch to their communities. Use drop-shipping to create zero-startup-cost store fronts and offer full-service uploading of designs and store management for partners who are busy creating content for their established audiences. Do not do any designing as most creators have an artist in their community or can use our existing list of partnered artists to commission artwork, independently of us.

Why should someone buy this store?

100% organic visits monthly. Converting fairly well. No advertising costs required.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Automate accounting and invest in continued partner outreach. Take a B2B approach and partner with teams / networks of creators.

What work have you put into the store?

Built brand and all social channels. On-boarded partners, built product listings, established relationship with artists and drop-shipper, manage payment processing. Surveyed existing partners to prioritize future features and establish clear USP.

    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.
