Step 1

To be successful with an business online you need some ideas; a website, a product, and a key niche. Deciding a niche is a big first step and very important to start a business online. The more you are familiar with the niche the better this would be as this would help you to know the target market and find marketing ideas in the future as you would know who you are selling to. When you have decided on a niche, add the Startup Streams store to cart, select which additional assets you’d like to kickstart your marketing campaigns and move onto Step 2…

Step 2

Next step to buy a business online: When we know what your preferable niche is, it’s our turn to fulfil your website order and complete any design requests you may have (terms apply). We will prepare everything which the site needs, again saving you time as you won’t need to fulfil the following as we do it for you:

  • Stunning website design and layout
  • On page SEO
  • Design optimisation
  • Product pages
  • Copywriting
  • Selection of images
  • Terms and Privacy policies
  • Contact us page
  • Domain name setup (if applicable)
  • Logo design
  • Product photography / mock up
  • Product descriptions 
  • Website content
  • Set up website navigation
  • Create product collections
  • Set everything up on the Shopify platform
  • Automate all fulfilment
  • Prepare marketing assets
  • Create a cohesive brand image

Step 3

Everything looks perfect now! Time to make it 100% yours!

The transition process from buying an online business could take between 48 hours or even 15 minutes, depending on the time for both parties (you and us) to answer invites and questions (this normally depends on the time zone we both find ourselves in).

After you manage to buy a business online, we will send all of the elements to your email via WeTransfer which includes a support pack to get you started, you should get the link within 30mins. It is best to follow the link and download it immediately as it will expired in 7 days after you receive it.

Then, you would have been sent a link from Shopify to become a member of the Shopify store’s team. Please accept the invite so we may continue the transfer. When you are a member of ‘staff’, please let us know that you have accepted the invitation so we can continue with making you store owner.

One last step to nominate you as the owner of the store…

Step 4

Store Ownership Invite Sent! 

This is the last step to buy a business online! You will get one final invite from Shopify which invites you to become full owner of the store. Once this is accepted, you are in control of everything: The store, domain, all products, all marketing…

Shopify will ask you to fill out some final details and you will receive a list of about 5 pages on the store’s admin which needs your attention. Items like taxes, policies and shipping info which you need to be aware of. 

Then your business is ready to grow! All the best…
