Why buy this High margin, easy to run ecommerce business Business

High margin, easy to run ecommerce business Business for Sale Auckland

The opportunity

This business was formed over 20 years ago, and has a very well established name and reputation in its niche market area. This is demonstrated by glowing reviews from hundreds of happy customers.

The business is highly systemised, requiring only one fulltime employee. The vast majority of sales are online. In 2021/22 the largest customer made up less than 2% of sales. Most sales are by credit card. This is therefore largely a ‘cash’ business.

Turnover is highly seasonal. Last year, 52% of sales occurred between October and December, and 70% from August to December. It follows that the purchaser will be able to bank a very significant profit in their first few months of trading, and then take a long break in January. The time to act is therefore now!
