Trusted Trampolines is a drop shipping site with no other fixed overhead costs than the monthly Shopify fee. We specialize in selling only the highest quality, safest trampolines. Because of this, all of our above ground trampolines have safety nets. This means that we are currently only listing roughly 150 products which is a portion of the available products from our 7 manufacturers/suppliers. Maintaining the website takes under 5 hours per week and we are willing to walk the buyer through all of the processes.
For those unfamiliar with drop shipping, this is a business method which allows us to list products previously approved by our manufacturers/suppliers without bulk ordering large amounts of inventory up front. Rather, once an order is placed for a product on our site, we simply forward this order to the manufacturer/supplier and purchase this product at their drop ship price, collecting the difference as our profit. This removes the risk of laying out large amounts of cash to bulk order inventory which makes the buying process a seamless and simple transition.

Revenue includes sales until the end of last month and is calculated from Exchange’s eligible payment providers. Total traffic comes from all data available to Shopify.
Advertising costs vary based on seasonality and managing these makes up the majority of the required maintenance of this site. We have only used Google AdWords campaigns for advertising.
Because this is a drop ship store, maintenance takes less than 5 hours of work per week with little to no risk since there are no large up front costs for inventory. It is an extremely easy business to manage which permits a flexible lifestyle, allowing you to work whenever, from wherever in the world.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Future owners can look into other marketing channels. Almost all of our sales came from paid ads through Google or organic Google searches. We have not implemented any social media ads or campaigns to achieve the current results.
What work have you put into the store?
This site took roughly 3 months to build prior to contacting manufacturers/suppliers. From there, it has been a growing process to increase sales to their current level. We also continue to contact new suppliers to expand our product catalog and have recently downloaded a new theme which is almost ready to be implemented and greatly improves the overall look of the site.
