Houux is a high ticket drop shipping business. Unlike many other drop shipping businesses, this store drop ships expensive products between $500-$1500 from suppliers in the United States. The store is an approved dealer with various US suppliers that offer a discount of 20-30% off their catalog.
The new owner will be provided with 5 days full training (via skype at set times) and a comprehensive video tutorial course. Afterwards there will be 30 days of on-going support to ensure the hand off is smooth and secure.
How does your business make money?
Drop shipping items like saunas, hot tubs and salon chairs to customers via Google Shopping advertising.
Most of our suppliers offer a 20-30% discount off of their catalog with an average sale price of $1100. This works out at roughly $200-$300 gross profit per sale.
Minimum advertised pricing is enforced with all resellers so the competition is not based of undercutting.
Why should someone buy this business?
This store has had a lot of time and energy dedicated to it. Literally hundreds of hours spread across supplier negotiations, website optimization and order fulfillment.
Unlike the popular Aliexpress drop shipping model, high ticket drop shipping has a much higher barrier to entry which equates to lower competition in the advertising space.
The sales generally range between $500 on the low end and $2000 on the higher end with a gross profit between 20-30%. Generous margins allow for relatively stable profits long term.
Much of the heavy lifting has been completed. Now what is required is organization with the suppliers to ensure all prices and inventory are up to date.
Once this is updated, advertising is the next task. This store primarily sells through the Google shopping platform with a little bit of Facebook retargeting. These ad platforms do not take a lot of time to set up as the technology does most of the work for you.
Why are you selling this business?I am selling this business because like many eCommerce business owners, I own other eCom stores that are growing in demand and time. My goal this year has to been to reduce the load of 'side-projects' and sell some of my drop shipping stores that I no longer can commit to. As the new owner of this store, you will also become part of a network of very successful eCommerce business owners.
