From the Broker

This listing is for a dropshipping 4-site package created in 2007, 2014, 2014, and 2016 in the automotive niche. The sites feature specialized products from manufacturers and distributors located in the US. Thanks to its good track record in the industry, this business has several authorized dealer contracts and exclusive relationships with branded suppliers which will pass on to the new owner. Since the market is growing quickly, new products are added regularly.

The primary traffic strategy for this business is paid traffic via Google ads and Bing ads. Each of these sites also enjoys a bit of organic and direct traffic. There is an email list over 17K that is currently only being used for cart abandon reminders. The business also boasts a Facebook following over 10K, which is not optimized. These are both opportunities for the Buyer to explore.

The sites are built using Prestashop. Each of the sites has custom modules installed including automatically loaded related items, cart reminders, custom search by make and model, product reviews, and exit and promo pop-up advertisements. Each site has a one-page checkout that was modified to work seamlessly with the other custom features. The Seller has also installed some custom programs to help with updating pricing and products, to avoid manually loading these on each site. The Seller will train the buyer on how to get the most out of each of these features.

*There is some seasonality to this business with the highest volume coming in from February to June.

*One of the sites started out on the Yahoo Store platform in 2007. In 2016 this site was moved to the Prestashop platform.
