We had started this business as an experiment to see how cheap a start-up can be started. We were a couple of graduates with a links into the sourcing market and peanuts in our pockets and we decided to see how we can build a business with absolutely measly start-up capital.
The store has been built on a stock Shopify theme which has been modified to make it look minimal and to make navigation and use simple for the customer. All the modifications and add-on have been done in such a way that the monthly operational costs are still at $31 per month.
Buy buying this site, you can be rest assured that your overheads are as low as they can possibly be, and this will give you the opportunity to maximise your profits.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Since our start-up capital was so low, we had no budget for marketing. The future owner of this business can greatly improve it by merely focusing on marketing. These are the cross-roads we have reached ourselves, wherein we realise that without real capital, this is as far as one can really go.
What work have you put into the store?
We have customised the base (free) theme entirely to make it look more clean and minimal. We have change the alignement of logos and added customer remarks at the bottom of the page. We have added custom tabs on the product page to allow us to share general description, technical description and washing instructions for each product.
We have customised the invoices and the checkout page. We have also made small modifications to the overall look and feel of the website which will be immediately evident were you to use it.
