Which platform does the website use?
Shopify - $29 per month - $299 per month (your choice)
Why are you selling the business?
I started this store with huge goals. So it is a little bit sad for me, that I need to sell it. Why? I am working on the really big project, much bigger than this, and I need to collect as much money as I can for my new, huge project. It was a great journey with this store and I know that it is just beginning for Spredshop. I have experience from eCommerce and I know this store can double monthly revenue in next month possibly. You can see a rapid increase in revenue every single month.
Can the website’s revenue be tracked back to the website?
Yes, revenue can be accurately tracked back to the business.
Is the website’s revenue kept separate from other business and personal accounts?
Yes, completely separate.
Are you willing to provide live revenue verification?
Yes, upon request from serious buyers and/or Flippa marketplace integrity. Also, see attachments.
What are the main expenses of the business?
This business operates via Dropshipping so there are no major expenses upfront. Doing so cuts down inventory expenses.
Shipping is free with orders over $75. If not free, is only $5. Most orders are above $75 to obtain free shipping.
Shopify monthly plan is $29 per month. You can upgrade to more expensive plan, with lower transaction fees, if you want to. (it is recommended if you are doing thousands of orders per month)
I also spend about $1000 on Facebook advertising daily. It is on new owner too. I spent $1000 because it made me back 4000 easily.More you spend, more you will make.

Do you use, or have you experimented with direct / display advertising?
Yes, I spend about $1000 daily on online advertising. This is the key to making a lot of money. I will give the buyer all my best performing ads and provide assistance on advertising for 14 days if they need. I can show all my strategies and insights, how to make lot of money with Facebook ads and how to scale them to the moon (So you don't buy only great store but also Facebook ads training and help)
Have you experimented with any other sales / marketing initiatives?
No, with this store I focused only on Facebook advertising. But I have experience with Instagram advertising too and I can help the new buyer to make some plans for it. It should increase revenue too.
Do you have employees or contracts with freelancers?
No, I spend 1 - 2 hours daily on the business processing orders and answering customer service queries. But I recommend to hire Virtual Assistant asap, it will save you lot of time and you can focus on Advertising. I can help you with hiring great and cheap Virtual Assistant too.

Handled via Emails & chat. Approx. 10-15 customer emails per day. Chat can be turned on when somebody is available to take chats. Chats are usually less than 1 per hour.
What makes your site better than the competition?
We have a nice looking store which is really optimized to get sales. We worked hard to make our store as good as possible. Also, we are focusing on the great customer service and we have repeat customers because of that. Next important thing is the community we started building on Facebook (has almost 40 000 likes now) about our SpredShop brand. People really loves our products and our Skull Community about it. There is huge potential to grow.
Will you provide post-sale support & training, in order to ensure that the buyer is able to fully take over the business and its operations?
YES! I will make myself available for 14 days to ensure the new owner is confident with the business operation.
What are the primary growth opportunities for the business going forward?
The business could use Email Marketing and start making a lot of money from emails. Because there is already huge list (about 2,000 people) of people, who are really interested in SpredShop products. Building Instagram and start making money from that is also a great opportunity. Still growing Skull Community on Facebook, so there will be huge community of people interested in every new product on this store. Blog posts can be written to increase organic search traffic even more. SEO Backlinks have not yet been developed and that could prove to be very profitable in the long run once thats done.
Does the site make sales internationally?
Yes, as this is a Dropshipping site, you can sell anywhere.
