Once you've published your listing on Exchange your store is officially for sale and can be seen by thousands of potential buyers searching for a business just like yours.
Deciding to sell your store is a big step and you'll want to make sure you do what you can to increase your chances of finding the right buyer. Ideally, you'll want to choose between multiple potential buyers so that you can hand your hard work over to the perfect person.
What can you do to increase your chances of finding a buyer?
Create a detailed listing. The most important thing is to create a listing that will spark the interest of buyers. If you're not sure what you should say in your listing, we have a guide on what to include in your listing.
Taking the time to create a detailed listing that answers questions buyers might have will pay off. You'll receive more messages from buyers who are interested in your store.
Add your own screenshots. Exchange will automatically generate some screenshots of your storefront. You can also include some photos of your own. Try uploading photos of sales and traffic data, ads you've created, or anything else that you think buyers might be interested in seeing.
Mention any other assets you're selling. If you're including a domain name and social media account in your sale, be sure to mention this in your listing. Stores that include a domain and social accounts have a higher chance of selling.
Share your listing on social media. There are social sharing icons on your listing page. Make the most of these and share your listing within your own network. This will increase the traffic to your listings, which will give you a better shot of becoming a trending listing.
