Ecommerce site aimed at the UK market for custom built PCs. There is a huge potential for this site to make good money if marketed effectively.
The dropshipper I use is fantastic, and can produce fantastic custom quotes for PCs. I would suggest the new owner use this as a unique selling point.
I have several other ecommerce sites and cannot manage them all, so am therefore selling this one, as it is the most complete site I’ve got, and therefore easier to sell. This is the only reason, and I have become quite attached to this site.
