Description We have been trading full time on eBay Australia since 2007, and have been trading eyewear products in the e-commerce platform focusing solely in the international market. The current account we are trading on has been registered since 2009, and we consistently have achieved sales of A$75,000 per annum in the branded eyewear industry. Our expertise include branding which compromises of high quality photography skills, always in trend of each season’s demand; which we believe are the main factors that year by year have been giving us a sustainable competitive edge over competitors despite them undercutting prices. However, like most businesses of being a reseller of other companies brands, the branded eyewear industry has been gradually falling since year 2014 hence we have recently started to venture into trading our own brand on the biggest marketplace, Amazon.com.

Since early 2016, we have started producing our own labels on premium quality OEM products. The opportunity for growth is larger as we are not bounded by retail price recommendations (RRP) compared to our other current business on eBay. As such, our profit margin is 100%-150% for each product with a success selling rate of 80%, and a turnaround time for 1 month.

Business Opportunity The business model is highly attractive, due to its high profitability and growth.

This is because Amazon has 6 active marketplaces that are detrimental to our future success; Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany, Amazon Italy, Amazon France and Amazon Spain. Acquiring financing will definitely leverage opportunities to serve all the markets mentioned above.

Revenue / Business Model The main market we are currently actively trading on is on Amazon UK. For each product that we private label, we make a margin of 150% from the cost price with a successful selling rate of 80% for the whole inventory in just a month’s time.

Due to financial constraint, our current target is only to launch 1 product per month.

In terms of profitability, for each product that we launch, we achieve a return of investment of 100%, within just 1 month of launching the product. Our strategy is by running Amazon Sponsored Ads which drives sales of 30-50 pieces per day and therefore we require 1500 units per product for a month’s supply of inventory. This equates to an investment of RM20,000 every month to launch a product, with a turnaround of only 1 month and a return of investment of 100%.

Management Team Our management team compromises of us and our excellent suppliers overseas.
Company Background I am an entrepreneur. I believe work has to be done efficiently through technology. At the moment, we are just a two person show, me and my wife. My wife handles most of the operation in terms of customer service and administration while I like most entrepreneurs are always looking into doing things more efficiently and also planning exciting new ventures.
