My Bird's House
I started this business back in 2016. The website was built in Shopify utilizing a customized premium theme.
This is a drop shipping eCommerce store in the bird cage niche. It specializes in selling large bird cages ranging from $350 - $4,500. We are currently stocking the 4 biggest brands in the industry.
Why are you selling the business?
This website has been a side project of mine and I haven't put in as much time into it as I'd like because of my day job. It has been fun to run and I'd like to pass it on to someone who is excited about drop-shipping and want to make this business grow.
Who Should Buy This?:
This site is perfect for beginners or experts.
For beginners - it's a great started site that comes with over 100 products uploaded and 100 of images uploaded. The sales process is simple, you just place orders by email or through an online portal depending on the supplier.
For Experts - this site has a ton of room for growth. Opportunities to add new products, add additional suppliers and use other means of advertising means there is a lot of room left for growth.
