Re: Dropshipping : What if buyer claims received empty box on ebay?

Re: Valuation of E-Commerce Business - Please Help

Thanks, TryBPO - it's hard to guess w/ that tool because the sale of our business wouldn't be based on our website, but our overall sales across multiple marketplaces, such as Amazon, etc.

Re: Valuation of E-Commerce Business - Please Help

This is great feedback folks. We're in e-commerce with primarly known brands and products with stiff competition. As a result, our margins are low - so our valuation would most certainly be on...
