Our Due Diligence Service Eliminates Risks
We know how to perform due diligence. We find the pros and cons of each acquisition to save you from making a mistake.
We perform a rigorous 23-point analysis of your potential eCommerce acquisition to give you the reassurance you need to proceed. We have built this report around the eCommerce operating system philosophy, covering each of the main key core components that make running an eCommerce business possible.
The report breaks down into the following sections:
Most eCommerce brands are based around a specific niche. We’ve analyzed eCommerce businesses for sale in multiple different categories and understand the ins and outs when it comes to dealing with individual categories and market nuances. We look at:
Overall market size and trends
Positioning in the market
Marketing can’t help you if you have a bad product. The more your product helps a specific pain point the more likely you’ll succeed. We look at:
USPs (unique selling points)
Even though people are at the heart of every company, systems allow it to scale and not break even if a staff member leaves. We analyze:
What OMS you’re using and it’s data
Your customer doesn’t care if you sell via SEO, PPC, email, or other channels. They care that they can purchase your products wherever they shop. We analyze and put into context:
Sales channel performance
To keep the customers happy they will be wanting to be kept in the loop throughout the shipping process, as well as speedy delivery. We look at:
In-house or via 3PL?
Couriers and rates
Returns rate and reasons
Valuation of eCommerce businesses is based on a multiple of Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE). Determining the valuation multiple is a critical factor that depends on the niche, market trends, trends, metrics, and more. We look for:
Evaluate asking price and multiple against market trends
Expert suggestions on what the business is worth
Once you’ve run an eCommerce business you know that cash flow is hard to keep control of and is one of the keys to success. We analyze:
P&L (Profit & Loss)
You can go faster alone but further together and as such you’ll need a team to help you achieve your goals. We analyze:
Team members and roles
Notice periods & flight risks
Understaffing or overstaffing issues

One of his main growth strategies is to leverage M&A. Over the last several years he has used this method and bought several businesses from IP, stock, and LTD purchases.
We hired Mushfiq’s team to perform due diligence on various content sites. Their reports were extremely thorough and pointed out insights that helped us make an acquisition decision.
The WebAcquisition team helped us perform due diligence reviews on multiple Amazon FBA businesses. We received an actionable report with many insights. I highly recommend Mushfiq and his team!
WebAcquisitions was fast, responsive, and most competitively priced. Turning around my report in only 5 days, they are one of the few firms that do a thorough SEO assessment as well as validating revenues. Mushfiq’s experience allowed us to catch things that weren’t on our radar.
I hired the WebAcquistion team to perform due diligence on a few content, Shopify, and newsletter businesses. Their deep expertise in operating such businesses definitely shows in the reports. Recommended!
WebAcquisition team performed a due diligence review of a content website we wanted to acquire from Empire Flipper’s brokerage. They reviewed everything related to the website and provided insights that have helped us make a decision. Recommended!
My consultation with WebAcquisition was very valuable and insightful. I was seeking feedback on potentially merging two sites into one and the conversation helped determine the best path forward, but also covered some other things like better monetization techniques. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced
Mushfiq and the team are experts and are always great to work with. Not only do they have a very quick turnaround on Due Diligence reports themselves (I’ve used them twice now for two successful purchases), Mushfiq is always available for follow-up questions. He is also extremely quick to respond. Would recommend.
