Business Story

Why this business was started

I acquired this business through Exchange Marketplace during the last quarter of 2018. The unique appeal of this specific niche, as well as the marketing angles that could be taken with it were the major reasons I decided to buy it out from its founder. The web-store performed among the top 2% of Shopify stores launched in the same week, and has potential for massive growth under the management of someone with better marketing experience.

The reason of selling this business

My intent upon buying this business was to run it as a side-gig while working a full time job and taking care of my daily responsibilities. A family crisis following the transfer has found me unable to dedicate the necessary time to running this store, and the resources I had set aside for marketing campaigns have had to be redirected to more pressing matters. I'm selling it to help cover medical expenses, and to keep the business and Zest brand alive and well.

What's involved in running this business

Setting up marketing campaigns, returning customer emails, standard drop-shipping operations.

Managing social media profiles. Twitter account has over 700 followers, and is a great platform for free advertising and customer outreach. Would recommend utilizing Facebook, Instagram, etc.

This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

    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.
