Taking over an existing webshop

If you prefer to invest in a source of income that you can manage both at home and on the go, it may be an idea to take over an existing webshop.


Depending on a number of factors (sales, profit potential, assets such as email list or social media followers, inventory, etc.), the costs can vary greatly. Some sellers are even willing to hire you as a staff member for a while to teach you exactly how their webshop should be run.


Buying and selling webshops

Exchange is a marketplace of Shopify, where you can buy and sell webshops. You can look at which companies fit your budget, your experience and your needs. Maybe you would like to buy a company that has already proven itself and you are willing to spend extra money for that. Or maybe you see a company that you think has a lot more in it than has been pulled out so far and you want to go with that.


As with anything you buy, be sure to thoroughly vet any company that seems interesting to you before you buy. What is included and what is not? Sales and other data can be checked through Shopify, so those numbers just add up.
