Frequently asked questions
Whether buying or selling your dream store, you’re bound to have questions
How do I list my business for sale?
If you'd like to sell your business on Exchange, install the Exchange app on your Shopify store and create a public or private listing.
I already closed my store but I would like to sell it. How can I do this?
You will need to pick a plan to reopen your store so it’s available to buyers. After you pick a plan, you will automatically be redirected to the official Exchange app to create your listing. You will be able to write a description and set a selling price.
Do you offer a payments service to facilitate the purchase payment from the buyer to the seller?
How is my store's valuation calculated?
Exchange's valuation tool recommends a selling price by taking into account a number of factors, including your store's lifetime revenue, traffic, and other features like social media followers or email subscribers. Stores that have features that are proven to sell are valued higher by our valuation tool.
Only whitelisted sales are accounted for in this calculation. These are sales that Exchange is able to verify, for a full list of whitelisted channels see here.
How do I write a good description for my listing?
When describing your Shopify store and the opportunity to buyers, we recommend including information about:
The type of products you sell (are you dropshipping or do you hold inventory?)
The work you’ve done on the store so far (if you haven’t made sales, is everything set up for the buyer to start selling? What should they consider once they buy your store?)
Links to your social media accounts and description of the campaigns you’ve done so far
How do I transfer my store?
Once you've agreed to the terms of the sale with the buyer. Follow these steps to get your store transferred.
