October 22, 2015 // Franchising.com // FRISCO, Texas – iSOLD It®, the nation’s premier service for selling goods online, announced today a new franchise model – iSOLD It @Home. Following in the footsteps of its successful retail store franchise model, the company has now developed a proven business opportunity for individuals looking to strike greater work-life balance by working in the comfort of their own home.
“We’re extremely enthusiastic about this next phase for iSOLD It,” said Fred Morache, co-owner and CEO of iSOLD It. “Our new business model meets a growing demand for home-based business opportunities and allows the brand to continue to grow. iSOLD It @Home offers people a chance to evolve right along with the digital shopping world, while providing exciting options to successfully run a business.”
iSOLD It has ten locations across the United States, primarily in retail locations. The company has spent considerable resources researching and developing the business model, perfecting the new home-based opportunity.
“I loved having a physical iSOLD It storefront, but due to some things going on in my personal life, it became difficult to run the store and focus on the things I needed to at home – that’s when I decided to move the business to the comfort of my own home,” said Amy VanderMolen, owner of the iSOLD It @Home store in Elmhurst, Illinois and the company’s first franchisee to transition into iSOLD It’s home model after seven years operating a retail iSOLD It store. “Last year, we recorded the most profitable year in our business history. The iSOLD It @Home model has truly given me the freedom to run my business the way that suits me and my family best.”
The new iSOLD It @Home model provides franchisees instant access to overstock product from, an exclusive national retail liquidation company, enabling franchisees to begin selling on eBay the day they open their business.
Items that iSOLD It stores sell for customers range from collector cars, small electronics and high-end bicycles to designer handbags, musical instruments and high value collectables. These items are typically sold at a sales fee of 30 percent of the winning bid sale on eBay.
“The flexibility of our franchise allows interested individuals the advantage of operating a small business that fits best with their lifestyles,” added Morache. “Whether running iSOLD It from the comfort of their own home or within a physical storefront, franchisees have the potential for unlimited growth.”
An online sales service delivered by experts who know how to efficiently sell goods online at the best prices, iSOLD It provides personalized service for seller-customers who are unaccustomed to selling on the internet or do not want to spend the time. Referred to as the “easy way to sell on eBay,” iSOLD It stores have sold more than one million items on eBay over the past 13 years.
With ten locations across five states currently, iSOLD It aims to have 20 additional franchises open by the end of 2016. As iSOLD It expands, the brand is offering franchise opportunities to qualified individuals who share the company’s vision and who are driven to succeed. Tailored for individuals wanting to get into business ownership and who enjoy working with online sales, the franchise model provides structure and opportunities for growth.
“This is a business where people can have fun doing the work and making money on internet commerce,” said Morache. “If you like keeping up-to-date with product features and value and selling things on eBay, this is the business for you,” add Morache.
