[NOTE: PRICE NEGOTIABLE] Are you a coffee aficionado and looking to dip your toes into Shopify, but don't know where to start? The Coffee Goods online store was started as a sample drop-shipping store in order to showcase some of my work to other potential clients, as well as a test case for running Facebook Ad campaigns for eCommerce stores. The store has a great deal of potential, but unfortunately I don't have the time to continue to manage it as I'm taking on other projects with clients. However, it's fully functional and perfect for anybody who has an interest in drop-shipping on Shopify!
Financials and traffic
This store was never built to be profitable, but rather showcase my own skills for a client. The Facebook ads I ran were mainly to build some traffic for the site and show proof of concept.

Revenue and traffic data from this graph is calculated by Exchange and can not be edited by the seller. Average profit, profit margin and number of sales are provided by the seller. Learn how Exchange calculated this data.
The Facebook ads cost is just what I was putting into it in order to build some traffic and gain some exposure for the purpose of presenting to my clients. It's not a fixed or required cost by any means. Additionally, several of the applications used on the site are paid.
This is a phenomenal starter store for somebody who has an interest in both coffee and drop-shipping with Shopify. I would say that the interest in coffee culture is a huge requirement though, because otherwise you'll never have the motivation required to source products and identify potentially successful products. If you're less into the building and designing and branding side of these sorts of things, then this is a perfect starting point for you! If handled properly and scaled correctly, this could easily generate $2,000-$5,000 in sales within 6 months. Take it from me though -- you need to have passion for the product.
How can the future owner improve the business?
The store needs a larger selection of items, and better organization of collections as well. I mainly filled the store with mugs and drinkware, but with an industry such as that of coffee there's a massive amount of potential for the amount of products being offered. To be entirely honest, I'm just not personally immersed in the coffee culture enough to know what's hot right now.
What work have you put into the store?
I've built out the entire store, and integrated the necessary systems and applications in order to have it run somewhat automated. Customers receive automatic follow up emails when carts are abandoned, inventory is automatically updated, and so on! Additionally, I've built out the store's Facebook page to 239 likes (which will keep growing as ads are run).
