    What You Can Expect When You Sell Your E-Commerce Business With Pacific Business Sales

    Confidentiality is of paramount concern to our eCommerce business owners and we take this very seriously. All of our ads for your business are general in nature with no specific information that would indicate which company is for sale or precisely where the company is located. Buyers do not receive any confidential information until they have signed a Confidentiality Agreement (NDA) and completed our Buyer Profile which includes information on their financial position, experience, and credit score.
    Marketing is one of our strengths at Pacific Business Sales. As you likely know from your eCommerce business, it’s one thing to have your ad pop up in front of thousands of buyers, but it is another thing to have them actually click on it and inquire. We write excellent ad copy and headlines that draw prospective buyers to our ads. We also feature all of our ads so they are at the top of the business for sale websites and not buried with the basic ads.
    We also send email blasts to our database of over 3,000 buyers as well as to the BizBuySell buyer database of buyers that have expressed interest in businesses like yours.
    We prepare a comprehensive Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM) for every business we represent. The CIM is the prospectus and marketing brochure for your business that buyers receive after they sign the NDA. The CIM is critical in the buyer’s decision process as this is their first in-depth look at your company. Our CIM includes information about the company, financial statements, staff list (names redacted), equipment list, SBA financing structure, SBA Lender pre-approval letter, and a summary of your services/products.
    The first meeting with prospective buyers is with us and is essentially a pre-screening to determine their abilities and frankly how interested and serious they are. After the initial meeting, we schedule a meeting with you, the buyer, and us to discuss the details of the business. Many of the basic questions are answered in our initial meeting, however, buyers often will ask these questions again because they like to hear it straight from the owner. Many of our first buyer-seller meetings are held via Zoom with a second meeting in person for the buyers that want to take the next steps. Of course, the next step after our meetings is to prepare an offer.
    All of our Purchase Agreements are prepared on the CABB (California Association of Business Brokers) Asset Purchase Agreement of Stock Purchase Agreement. We prepare the offer with the buyer and send it for signature via DocuSign. When the offer has been signed by the buyer we review it with you, explain the details, and prepare a Counter Offer if necessary.
    Due Diligence is a very critical step in the transaction process of selling an eCommerce business. This is where the rubber meets the road so to speak. During Due Diligence, the buyer and often their CPA will review the company’s tax returns, P&Ls, bank statements, and other records to confirm the revenue and earnings are what is claimed. The buyer will also be reviewing the overall company to ensure it is a well run and stable business. We facilitate Due Diligence with both Buyer and Seller assisting in the process and keeping it on track. After Due Diligence is complete and the contingency is removed escrow is opened. See the Steps in Selling My Business below.We are very familiar with eCommerce companies, digital marketing, and the various e-commerce/website platforms that are used in E-Commerce businesses. It is critical that the broker representing your company to be knowledgeable about your business so they can speak intelligently about your company and the industry with prospective buyers.
    A vital aspect of selling an eCommerce company is ensuring the buyer understands e-commerce, websites, and is capable of running the business and equally important, closing the transaction. We receive lots of inquiries for e-commerce businesses and many of the buyers, while financially well qualified, do not have the experience or technical skills to run an e-commerce company. At Pacific Business Sales we carefully screen prospective buyers for both financial qualifications and their ability to run the business. Our experience has taught us the buyers with weak industry experience may make an offer but often do not close the transaction. For eCommerce companies we look for buyers with experience in digital marketing, e-commerce, and supply chain as well as familiarity with websites.
    Typically over 90% of our transactions use SBA financing. Why is this important to you as a seller? Simply put, CASH at closing!With SBA financing you as the Seller don’t have to finance the sale with a Seller Note. In fact, in many cases, we have secured SBA financing for up to 90% of the purchase on eCommerce companies and with a 10% buyer down payment, that means you get paid cash at closing. With SBA financing and a low down payment, the buyer pool for your business increases exponentially! A buyer with $200,000 of cash can buy an eCommerce business valued at $2,000,000.Often the banks may require a small Seller Note of 10% of the transaction along with the SBA loan and in this case, you would receive 90% cash at closing, less closing costs, and fees.
    We offer a free comprehensive Market Value Analysis of your business using the same methodology and professional valuation software used by SBA Valuation Analysts. With our Market Value Analysis, you can be confident SBA financing will be approved at the value we recommend.

    What’s the first step in Selling My Business?

    The first step is to determine the value of your business. We answer all of your questions about the prospective sale of your business and explain the process and what it will take to market and sell your business to achieve the best outcome.

    E-Commerce Client Testimonial

    “When I decided it was time to sell my company, I had no idea how to proceed, but one name kept coming up – Bill’s. Best call I could have made. Within 45 days, I had multiple offers. Bill handled everything, and kept me in the loop almost daily. I really couldn’t believe how smoothly the entire transaction went, and ended up with the perfect buyer, and just the deal we had discussed on our first meeting. If you are serious about buying or selling your company, do yourself a favor and give Bill a call.”
