Business Story

Why this business was started

I Started this business because I thought it would be a fun and easy way to make some side money. I wanted to see if I could provide products to people around the world and they would actually buy them. It is a really amazing to see people all over the world buying things from your website.

The reason of selling this business

After successfully doing this for a couple months, I decided that it would be better for me to focus on school and other important things in my life. Although I could run the store without much effort, it would not be as great as a store as I wanted.

What's involved in running this business

The main day to day tasks of this business are: when you get a sale, you have to buy the products on Ali Express through Oberlo. Oberlo will put all of the customers information automatically into Ali Express. It is a manufacturer direct process, so you don't need to have any inventory. You also have to make sure that the products are still being sold and the site is running as it is supposed to.

This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 6 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    It is important to talk to the manufacturers of the products to make sure the products will arrive to the customer in good time. I would continually add and get rid of products on the site to keep it up to date. Facebook ads are usually the best to reach travel lovers who are willing to buys things.

    Skills to have

    Know how to use Oberlo well and make sure everything runs well. In order for this store to do well, the owner must be able to market a store very well. Because this is a dropshipping store, the main way that you get people to click on your store is through creative ads.

    I have been running this site for a couple months. It is a dropshipping site that has done well for the short amount of time it has been online. I need to focus on school, so I decided I would try and sell my business.
