Women's Clothing Dropship Ecommerce Store Averaging $13,430 Net Profit Per Month
The current owner estimates that he spends 6-8 hours per week running the store at its current operating level.
One reason the current owner is able to spend so little time operating the store each week is that he has a couple of Virtual Assistants (VAs) in place who handle the vast majority of the day-to-day operating tasks of the business, including order fulfillment, customer service, catalog updates, and store maintenance. This expense has of course been deducted as a business expense for purposes of calculating the net monthly profit, as you can see in the P&L above.
Here's a list of the tasks the current owner performs himself:
Accounting and bookkeeping
Managing ad campaigns
Researching new suppliers and product lines
Overseeing the VAs
The current owner uses a combination of several channels/techniques for driving traffic to the website, including:
Google Pay-Per-Click (PPC) ads - primarly Product Listing Ads (PLAs), also known as shopping ads
Bing PPC ads - primarily PLAs
Remarketing ads (primarily through Facebook)
Email marketing campaigns (to both previous customers and newsletter opt-ins)
Organic and direct traffic (based on keyword rankings and brand reputation)
Up for sale is a well-established and highly profitable 100% drop-shipping based eCommerce store with a long track record of consistent sales and profits. Over the past 18 months (October 2016 through March 2018), the store has averaged $33,338 in revenue and $13,430 in net profit per month.
The store primarily sells women's clothing (dresses, coats, jackets, pants, skirts, tops, sweaters, swimwear, shoes/boots, etc.) but also sells various accessories as well (bags, hats, belts, etc.). Absolutely every item in the catalog is drop-shipped directly to the customer, so there's no need to pre-purchase large quantities of products, stock/warehouse inventory, or deal with shipping out orders.
Oct 2016 - Mar 2018 Total Net Profit: $241,748
Approximately 95.4% of total revenue is derived from customers in the United States, with an additional 1.3% from customers in the UK and 0.6% from customers in Canada. The store ships worldwide, but the current owner just hasn't really explored marketing in other countries throughout the world. This is definitely a growth opportunity the new owner will want to explore.
