Fashion Urges is a leading online shopping store, selling fashionable handbags, shoes, clothing and accessories. Majority of my customers (target audience) are women aged 16-40 located worldwide. I'm dedicated to providing my customers with great quality products at affordable prices and top-notch service. Over 200 raving reviews and testimonials from happy customers have been posted on my website. Fashion Urges has also been featured in various online shopping communities and reviewer blogs alike.
I function as the retailer, buying goods at wholesale prices to resell
I support dropshipping (recruit others to help sell my goods)
My wholesalers are normally located in China, but you can place your orders via a single point of contact (English-speaking) who will manage the purchasing, payment and shipment of products to you.
The profit margin will depend on the shipping option you choose (EMS, DHL, etc.)
My worldwide shipping rates depend on the country the customer is located in. The customer can choose to ship via regular air mail or courier service (EMS).
I update my products every 3-4 weeks to keep my inventory fresh, but this is entirely up to you. The more time and effort you invest into the website, the more you will stand to earn from it.
It normally takes about 15-30 minutes a day to respond to customer orders and inquiries (depending on the order volume).

Reason for Selling
I'm working on a new, larger scale project right now and I need to put all my focus on it, even if it means letting go of a business that's already making me money.
I only operate Fashion Urges on a part time basis as I have a full time job. I started the business in June 2009, break even in April 2010, with plenty of stock left to spare. So, the revenue I obtained from May 2010 onwards is pure profit.
In year 2011 alone, I earned $11,515 in profits, with an average income of $960 per month.
In year 2012 (until Aug), I earned $5215 in profits, with an average income of $652 per month.
You may refer to the attachments for my revenue reports generated from my Virtuemart reporting tool (convert the currency from MYR to USD).
I have invested very little time in my website over the last 6 months (responding to customer inquiries and fulfilling orders only), and even more so in the last 3 months due to my new project but you can see that it still earns me a pretty good income. If you were to allocate some budget for advertising on Facebook or Google Adwords, or do some SEO, your earnings will potentially skyrocket.
My site's earnings is purely based out of the sales of my products. You can boost your income significantly by adding the following:
Target new markets: e.g. online shopping for men, office wear, etc.
Dropshipping (recruit others to sell your products)
Affiliate sales (helping others to sell their products)
Blogging (I already have a blog presence)
The seller accepts full responsibility for the entire contents of this listing.
