3. Operating the business
This business was designed to be simple and scalable and to be operated by 1 person. Day to day operations are 100% automated and the only work you need to do is answering the occasional support email and fulfilling bulk orders. This gives you more time to grow your business and interact with key customers.
Here's an overview of the journey....
Lead enters the site and purchases through the payment widget (pricing page) the billing is done through Paywhirl. NOTE: This billing platform is very versatile and you can easily add up-sells or cross-sells at this point in the customer journey.
Payments are processed through Stripe (you can change this to Braintree, Authorize.net, or Square). After paying, the customer is brought to a page that has a form where they enter the postcard details. They also receive a branded email thanking them for their purchase. The owner receives a copy of this email, this is how you're notified of a new sale.
Once they submit the form, they are routed to a thank you page with the option to purchase again.
4. Potential Customers
This website can service anyone who needs to send thank you cards. Due to covid, many people would rather complete as many tasks as possible from the comfort of their home.
Also in 2018, the stationary market made approximately 90 billion in revenue. This is estimated to increase each year.
Customers could be anyone who needs to send thank you cards for gifts received, being invited to dinner, trip, or event, etc.
Low expenses: $17/mo Wix premium, $25/mo service provider, $18/yr domain.
Domain name valued by Go Daddy.
The cost to fulfill orders is 99¢/postcard. The only expenses are to keep the website live and operating - there is a wholesale version of the service provider when you grow the site large enough to need it. When needed, the wholesale version is 49¢/postcard + $49/mo.
Significant growth is forecasted since experts are on record saying there is an increase in ecommerce purchases due to covid.

7. Benefits of a Starter Site
Starter sites are perfect for someone who is new to eCommerce or entrepreneurship because it takes less time to get up and running. Throughout the years, I've made a ton of mistakes and spent a lot of money figuring out how to build a successful eCommerce business. With a starter site, you skip the building part and go straight to the growing part. Very little technical skills is required (there is light HTML coding in email templates and data routing in the service provider, but I can teach you these) Also, since this website is already built, it already has pages indexed by Google which bypasses the Google Sandbox term.
A starter site is perfect for you if....
You're new to eCommerce or entrepreneurship
You want to start your own business but have limited funds or time to build one from the ground up.
You want to practice or experiment with various marketing strategies before implementing them in another business
You want to flip businesses (buy a business for low, then grow it, and sell it for a higher price)
You don't know where to start in your entrepreneurship career. With this business, you receive direct support and training from someone who has helped grow million-dollar businesses.
8. Seller Notes
This business is ready to scale quickly. All it needs is someone with an entrepreneurial fire who is ready to take it on.
Included with the purchase you will receive custom video trainings explaining how to operate the business. I am also available any time via email for one-off questions, or we can schedule a video call.
Please note that this design/layout is not unique and there is at least 1 other site using it. The service provider is a SaaS made available to entrepreneurs like you. Once this business grows, I suggest upgrading to the wholesale version so you can build even more!
As long as you take action, obtain the most qualified traffic, and get your leads to convert into sales, you will grow this business to where you want it to be. There are many people in the world that prefer to pay a premium for the convenience of mailing a postcard from their computer, similar to how Amazon made it convenient to shop from home. This is your opportunity to help, and take advantage of this fruitful market!

9. About the Seller
Hi, my name is Alex. I'm a serial developer based in New York, USA. I work full time in my tech agency eBizSelect.net that helps businesses online. I'm a fan of passive, recurring revenue model businesses that scale with ease. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase a website that I would rather sell than build. I simply do not have the time to give this business the effort it needs to grow.
NOTE: You will need a free Flippa account.
