Our Due Diligence Service Eliminates Risks

Our team has performed due diligence on over 1,000 dropshipping, e-commerce, Shopify, and Amazon FBA businesses. We’ve scaled several businesses to over 7 figures.

We know how to perform due diligence. We find the pros and cons of each acquisition to save you from making a mistake.

What’s Covered?

We have meticulously conducted a thorough 23-point analysis of your prospective dropshipping business acquisition, customized to provide you with the confidence necessary for decision-making. Our approach is centered around the fundamental principles of dropshipping, addressing each core component essential for the successful operation of such a business.

The report breaks down into the following sections:

Market

Most dropshipping brands center around a particular niche. We’ve scrutinized eCommerce businesses for sale across various categories, gaining insights into the specifics of managing each category and its market nuances.

Overall market size and trends

Positioning in the market

Main competitors

Product

Effective marketing alone cannot salvage a poor product. Success is more likely when your product effectively addresses a specific pain point. We consider:

Unit margins

USPs (unique selling points)

Suppliers

Operations

While people are essential to any company, robust systems enable scalability and resilience, ensuring operations continue smoothly even when staff members depart. Our analysis covers:

What OMS you’re using, and it’s data

Registered trademarks

Business model

Marketing

Your customers are indifferent to the channels through which you sell—be it SEO, PPC, email, or others. What matters to them is the convenience of purchasing your products wherever they choose to shop. We analyze and contextualize:

Revenue distribution

Sales channel performance

Grow opportunities

Fulfillment

To ensure customer satisfaction, it’s crucial to keep them informed throughout the shipping process and provide speedy delivery. We examine:

3PL information

Couriers and rates

Returns rate and reasons

Valuation

Valuation of dropshipping businesses relies on a multiple of Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE). Determining this multiple is pivotal and depends on various factors such as niche, market trends, metrics, and more. We look for:

Evaluate asking price and multiple against market trends

Expert suggestions on what the business is worth

Finance

Having operated a dropshipping business, you understand the challenge of managing cash flow, which is integral to success. We analyze:

Stock value

P&L (Profit & Loss)

Verifying revenue

Team

Progressing swiftly alone is possible, but enduring progress requires a cohesive team effort to achieve your goals. We analyze:

Team members and roles

Notice periods & flight risks

Understaffing or overstaffing issues

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.

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

Bryan May

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.
