I am selling an Ecommerce site based on BigCommerce specializing in Motorized Scooters. This site has been recently updated and its looking good. The site has excellent search engine results and continues to drive sales with minimal marketing input on owners part.
The sale includes Facebook and Youtube accounts that are not really being used. Leads from these sources convert well but we have not had the time/skill to properly use them.
We will train as much as you need for the first couple weeks (It's a pretty simple business). Then after that time we will of course answer any questions as they come up.
I am selling because I am moving overseas with my full-time job and won't have time for the site like I should. It requires about 10hrs a week and phone availability during normal hours. I am currently using a call center for inbound calls but I feel sales and service is best done directly!
It has been an easy little money maker that is fun at the same time. We also have some bulk purchasers in place that we will gladly hand over to new owner.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Depending on a few factors as short as 3 days up to 8 business days. We ship via long haul trucking companies so some locations take a little time. Tracking is provided for all shipments.

Payment upon ordering. They have offered billing options but this way seems easier to track.

We have added and dropped product lines in the past. Lately we are focusing on our main sellers and plan to slowly reintroduce old suppliers back in.
Are you willing to sign a 3-year non-compete contract in the industry that the website operates in?
Yes, I am.
Will you provide 1-3 months of post-sale support & training, in order to ensure that the buyer is able to fully take over the business and its operations?
What are the primary growth opportunities for the business going forward?
We have recently been adding ancillary items at checkout and this has proved popular (rush shipping upcharge). We believe that adding other add on products will work well such as, helmets, oil, spark plugs etc.
We are in the beginning of starting to go after more fleet sales. This could be a good opportunity. We currently have a BOys and Girls Club in TN that has ordered 12 bikes, is placing an order this week for 25 more and plans on up to 150.
Also the ability to add to product line up through adding suppliers and product lines will drive sales in the future.
