So then I look at the price. And the price is almost the same as the profit that the website is making per year. Sometimes the multiple (as it is called on their website, a price per earnings coefficient) is even less than one. I've been looking mostly at verified statistics. Many people that sell such websites claim that they are doing it due to not having enough time, having better opportunities, or whatnot.
My question, I suppose, is what is the deal with these websites? Do they have a very short life? Like if you don't seriously invest in some advertising, you will see a cliff drop of clients? Is the website being new a part of why they are getting (relatively) good money, after which advertising per sale ratios jump up? Are these websites scams, like are the people selling to themselves via some mule accounts?
I'm genuinely curious about this, sorry if this sounds noobish. I was kind of taken aback by how easy it seems that those people started making profit (let alone earnings), after opening a brand new dropshipping/ecommerce website.
