This listing is for an eCommerce and Amazon FBM business created in April 2012 in the pet care niche. The included Amazon Seller Central account features 84 SKUs for large high-ticket items, some used for particular types of pets and some for gardening. This is a well-aged business that has been growing in recent months.
The business earns from Amazon FBM (43%), eBay (30%), and traditional eCommerce (27%). The Seller recently started enrolling some items in the FBA program. As they carry out their own logistics with a UK courier, it was not a requirement, but the Seller recognized the benefits of the Prime badge. While it is slightly more expensive to sell through FBA, the Seller believes the current profit margins could accommodate the increase if additional sales are made. They also believe that in the long term, these costs could be further accounted for by shipping directly from the supplier to Amazon.
The business has had a strong history of sales on the German, French, and Italian marketplaces and the Seller is setting up to start selling on these marketplaces again. More details can be provided to active Buyers.
The business has several designs registered with the IPO office on some of the products which offer protection against competitors copying them.
The business currently has one full-time warehouse staff, an IT staff member, and two customer service staff. The business is currently run 5 days a week with 7-12 shifts and the Seller successfully implemented shorter days during the pandemic. The business currently needs at least one person in the office each morning to print the dispatches for that day, but the Seller believes the business could be run by just a customer service employee and a warehouse employee.
As for the website, it has good traffic diversification with the top-traffic page receiving no more than 12% of traffic, and the site ranks well organically.
For the growth opportunities for this business, the Seller states that new products are fairly easy to develop and the business has a solid reputation. The Seller also believes there is huge potential in the FBA market and they only have a few items that are not suitable but this is something Amazon are working on and according to the Seller, they could have a solution in the coming months. There is also potential to build on the Instagram and YouTube accounts as there is a large online community in this niche.
