I’m going to teach you how to flip Shopify starter sites. Starter sites are pre-built Shopify stores that you can sell on the Shopify Exchange, Craigslist, Flippa or the Facebook Marketplace for an easy $300 – $1000+ One of my students went from being a personal trainer to making $3000+ in her first week building and flipping these simple start sites.
I recommend along with the website itself you also package pre-built Instagram accounts and Facebook pages to potential buyers can start driving traffic, running ads and making sales right away. So you’re essentially selling them a pre-packaged commence business.
The more products you add to these websites, added features via simple Shopify apps and the more you grow the included social media accounts and email lists the more value you can get from each website.

👉 Step 1: Find a Profitable Niche to Build Your Starter Site Around.
One of the best ways to find out what’s already working is to browse through the sold listings on the Shopify Exchange and Flippa then reverse engineer it for yourself. Some niches like woman fashion, jewelry, pets and etc always sell well and are easy to find products to list.
Another great tool to find trending products from AliEpxress is a website called Thieve. Once you find one great product you can typically go to the seller’s profile on AliEpxress and craft a website around what they’re offering.
👉 Step 2: Building Your Starter Site & Social Media Accounts
I’m sure you’re already familiar with how to set up a Shopify store, but in this video I’ll step you through the basics of setting up your website, designing a logo, adding products and installing Shopify apps to add additional features to your website.
I highly recommend you use an app like Oberlo to quickly add and edit new items to list on your starter site. This also acts as a great selling point when you list your starter site because these plugins automatically fulfill orders for your future buyers.
👉 Step 3: Listing Your Starter Site For Sale
The main marketplace you’re going to be using is the Shopify Exchange, but you can also list your websites for free on classified sites like Craigslist, the Facebook Marketplace and of course, Flippa.
The only caveat to selling your starter sites on Flippa is the upfront cost to publish your listing. There is a $25 upfront listing cost, they take 10% of the final purchase price and I recommend you buy the additional listing features they will try to up-sell you on. So you may want to reserve Flippa for your higher end starter sites you think can bring in $500 to $1000.
Flippa is also a great place to buy, sell and flip domain names.
However, listing your websites on the Shopify Exchange is free and easy. Just fill out the required information and you’ll typically get your first couple of offers within the first 2 to 3 days of posting.
Craigslist is also free to post, but you will need to manually add screenshots of your website and keep posting in populated areas to your pre-packaged business ad will be seen. But, it’s free so you can’t complain. I’ve sold a number of websites through Craigslist myself.
👉 Step 4: Accepting Payment For Your Starter Sites
It’s extremely important that you always use an escrow service when selling any time of large assets such as physical real estate, cars, other large purchases and of course, digital real estate like you’ll be selling.
An escrow service acts like a middle man that holds onto both the asset, which in this case will be your website and the included social media accounts and they also hold the buyer’s money. Once both parties are happy, they will then transfer the assets to both parties. It’s just a way of making sure neither you nor your buyer is getting screwed.
If you’re selling through the Shopify Exchange, this will be the easiest way. Shopify’s team along with Escrow.com will walk you through the entire transfer process step-by-step and Flippa also has its own built-in escrow service.
If you’re selling websites off of a major marketplace like these, make sure you NEVER accept anything like credit card payments or PayPal. You can sign up for a free account directly on Escrow.com.
