Touch a value for a description
Up for sale is SimplyPetSupplies.com. This is a turnkey pet supply eCommerce website that is currently pre-loaded with over 15,000 SKUs.
I owned a large online pet supply eCommerce company and a couple years ago it was acquired by another company. I have a bunch of pet supply domains we were going to develop into new stores at one point, but never did since we got out of the business. I have decided to sell these domains as turnkey stores along with our great vendor relations and lend my experience to give someone the opportunity to start a legitimate ecommerce business. The pet market is growing by leaps and bounds online!
The site is currently using the instantestore.com hosted shopping cart software. As someone that has used or tested a large majority of the shopping cart platforms out there I highly recommend using these guys. The cost is only $49.97 a month for unlimited products and great tech support. Not to mention the cart has every feature imaginable. The site has a custom designed logo, but we just have a template design on the site right now, so the buyer can customize the site how they want. You can have a nice custom design done for $400 through the design company instantestore.com uses for their clients if you want; otherwise they have hundreds of free template that are highly customizable. As mentioned the store is populated with 15,000 pet supplies. This originally took us a very long time because we had to edit each products title and descriptions to make them more eCommerce friendly. Please factor this in if you are interested in purchasing this. It took me nearly a month full time to get this product database to where it is, but still has room for improvement. You would have to do this yourself otherwise as the datafeed from the distributor is not ecommerce friendly at all. We also had the tech guys at Instantestore.com develop us an inventory module that updates the inventory from the warehouse to our sites. We paid a little over $1,000 to have this developed and we will make sure the module is integrated into the site so you don’t need to develop this and worry about out of stock items selling, etc. (however please note that we still own this module and can use it on other stores we may launch in the future)
What comes with the sale?
Domain: SimplyPetSupplies.com (roughly 2.5 years old)
Product Database: The edited and optimized product database in CSV format and preloaded into the store.
Inventory Module: Use of the inventory module we developed.
Logo: This is a custom logo designed for this site.
Vendor Relationship: This is where the value of this sale comes from. We have had a great relationship with one of the largest pet supply distributors in the country that ships our orders direct to customer. This is not some small “drop shipper” that thousands of ecommerce sites online use. They are the real deal. You will be paying below dealer wholesale prices on products through them and they have a very efficient direct-to-consumer program set up.
You will need decent credit to get an account with them though. Otherwise you can have someone cosign that has good credit also. This is not the type of company that allows you to put each order on a credit card. You need to have credit terms with them and they invoice you once a month for the inventory you buy. This shows how big and legit they are.
The distributor has been in business for many, many years and currently stock around 30,000 SKUs including pet supplies, equine, farm, wild bird, pond, etc. products. (Room for growth past the pet segment) Many big companies use them including QVC.com.
Consulting: I will give you 6 months of internet marketing and eCommerce consulting if you need it via email or IM.
