Checkout Process. Customers can browse the site and add items to the cart. They can then proceed to Checkout where they can pay for their order via Credit Card, Debit Card or PayPal. When a new order comes in you will receive an order confirmation email from the supplier.

Processing Orders. As the order is placed and the money is secured the supplier will then deliver the items, transparently and promptly, directly to your customer. Your commission will be added to your affiliate account.

Deliveries. Orders can be delivered worldwide. That’s it.

Affiliate Commissions. Once the account reaches $50 you're able to withdraw money via PayPal, Wire Transfer (US banks only) or by Cheque.

Has the website changed platforms recently?

Where is the site hosted and does this need to change after purchase?

Amazon cloud – hosted by the supplier. There are no needs to have a hosting plan for the new owner. You just need to make changes in the domain settings, simply point your DNS "A" Record to the supplier’s IP, that’s all.

How the transfer process looks like?

The buyer provides his email address, the address is then allocated to a separate affiliate account and the account (with the all settings, login credentials, webpage content, logos etc.) is transferred to the buyer along with the domain name. The domain name transfer has two options 1) a free push to the buyer's GoDaddy account or 2) a transfer to the buyer's preferred domain registrar (it may take a while due to the new ICANN regulations). 

Payment will be through Escrow/Flippa Escrow only. Once payment is deposited into Escrow, I will transfer the domain name. Also, buyer will pay the Escrow fees, so please take this into account before placing your bid.

Once funds have been released, I will provide access to the affiliate account/website files. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the payment terms, please do feel free to contact me prior to bidding.

I will also provide the buyer with detailed documents to explain how to manage and develop the site, how to use the admin panel along with the video instructions. The new owner will get a complete How-to Guide incl. a number of video tutorials regarding to social network campaigns and promotion/creating special landing pages in order to avoid getting a red flag from FB or other networks.

What type of maintenance does the site require, and how many hours a month would you estimate it’d take a developer to complete these duties?

No maintenance at all. The entire system was built on Amazon's cloud computing platform, which allows us to provide unparalleled up-time, response time, and scalability. The system automatically adds servers to meet the web traffic demands of its affiliates. 

COMPETITION

Please describe your main competitors

Adameve.com (also acts as a manufacturer), lovehoney.com (with several local online shops like .eu, .fr etc.) and amazon.com

Yes I can do it.

What are the primary growth opportunities that you see for the business going forward?
