From the Broker

This listing is for a dropshipping business created in July 2009 in the automotive niche. The business sells a specific category of custom automotive accessories that are dropshipped to customers from a single US-based supplier. Maintaining this business only requires 2-4 hours of work per week to prepare orders for fulfillment and handle any customer support.

Most of the customers for the business are from the US, although there is a lot of traffic from outside of the US. The business currently uses a fixed shipping cost, so configuring a variable shipping cost dependent on the cart total would be one way to explore increasing earnings from worldwide customers.

As far as assets, the business includes social media profiles for Facebook and Twitter, along with an email list. The Facebook page has about 3.9K likes. The seller rarely posts content on Facebook, so it isn't very important for traffic to the site. The Twitter profile has 700+ followers. The email list has of 4.4K+ subscribers and is not being utilized except for the occasional email (1 or 2 per year).

Regularly updating the social media profiles and sending out emails to the email list are key growth opportunities for the business.

The business currently employs on freelancer that takes in orders and makes customizations when required. They only spend about 1-2 hours per week to handle their tasks. The new owner may wish to continuing outsourcing this small amount of work or handle it themselves.
