    Hi folks, I wish to buy an established ebay/amazon business, but I'm struggling to find any decent listings for such businesses. I've managed to find an enormous amount of crap, people selling eBay and Amazon businesses that are really just adverts for training.

    If you have any tips, I'm all ears. Thanks!

    That would be way better than buying an existing business.

    Wouldn't it be better if you'd just set up a new business instead of buying an existing one? I'd love to hear more details why you prefer to buy than setting up a new business.

    Hi there. Have you considered buying an established e-commerce website that generates a consistent income each month? If not, I recommend checking out Flippa.

    Kind regards,

    I'm not too sure yet why you want to do that though. Why not try your hand at drop shipping? It's easier this way as you don't need to hold inventory. It's as easy as listing the items online (eBay/Amazon) and once you make a sale, you contact your drophsip supplier and order the item/s on your buyer's behalf while your dropship supplier sends the order to your buyer's address.

    Of course, to have a business as easy as this will also have it's drawbacks. You can find out more about drop shipping and decide later if this method is best for you: https://www.salehoo.com/education/finding-sourcing/the-benefits-and-drawbacks-of-dropshipping
