Business Story

Why this business was started

I built this site to promote a unique product from China that I had never heard about. Due to the increasing volume of sales and traffic for this particular item, it seemed obvious to me that a site dedicated for sales and marketing would be successful. The Original Zen Lighter was born as the result.

The reason of selling this business

I like to build branding and sites, but have a very full schedule with family and work. It was my intention to build something viable, get it well indexed in the search engines (which I have successfully done), and pass the torch to somebody who will enjoy operating the site and processing the orders.

What's involved in running this business

The business is up and running. All you need to do is increase marketing to increase sales and then process the orders. The flow is already largely automated. The learning curve is maybe an hour or two. Then, you can add products instantly or continue to operate the site with the original product alone.

This business was founded: 10 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week

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.
