When Selling an Ecommerce Business; Find a Competent Website Broker

Posted by Lenny Farber in Articles


In the last quarter of 2014, the internet exceeded one billion websites. Those that are actually classified as ecommerce businesses amount to about 20 million, with 650,000 of those generating overall annual sales of $1,000 or more. That’s a huge number of ecommerce sites that live a life cycle like any other, they are purchased, operated, and then sold. When it comes time to sell, find a competent business broker that knows how to sell your ecommerce business to the network of buyers hungry for just such a digital asset to purchase.

If you’re thinking of selling a website on your own, think again. That route is fraught with troubles simply because it’s likely you, yourself, just don’t have the experience, know how, or the network of people available at your fingertips that is necessary to successfully sell an ecommerce business. Sure, you could look up a how-to on the internet, but if selling your ecommerce business is something that is important to you, with a high profit being the most important end result, get in touch with a qualified website broker, one that has sold thousands of sites in the past, and one that knows exactly how to go about successfully selling yours.

How does one go about finding a website broker that’s worth their salt and can deliver results? It’s not as hard as you might think. First, years of experience make any business more viable, more eligible to be able to not only promote their business, but to actually see their clients through to a successful deal closing. Ask questions like:

  • How long have you been in the business of selling websites and ecommerce sites?
  • What is your founders’ background? Financial? Internet sales?
  • Do you charge a commission up front or after my website has sold?
  • Do you have access to a network of qualified and vetted buyers to make the sales process quicker?
  • Will you provide me with the highest confidentiality during the sale of my website?

At, they offer their clients 20 years of experience in the industry of selling websites. Their founders have an extensive background in the field of serial internet entrepreneurship, and they never charge a penny of commission until the client’s site has sold.
