Launched in 2015, this business is the category originator and continues to be the most robust online book arbitrage tool with the largest database and the most in-depth training. The aggregator that currently owns this business has not been actively operating it for a long period of time, as this business is now outside their scope of SaaS operations. Current monthly recurring revenue (MRR) is approximately $20,000 without any paid advertising or sales team. The initial product launch was limited to 100 users and sold out within 90 seconds.

After entering the book-selling business on Amazon in 2007, the original owner saw there was clearly a need for an all-inclusive software/training system to run an Amazon business from home. Following the wildly successful launch, lifting the user cap allowed the business to steadily increase MRR. An upgrade launched in 2019 generated over $800,000 in sales in just one hour, proving the ongoing demand for this product.

The first opportunity for growth is in paid advertising, as the current ad spend is zero. Additional subscriptions would immediately boost MRR. The current model could also be cloned to function on international Amazon marketplaces.

There are eight paid Chrome extensions that would appeal to the broader Amazon seller market, yet these have only been promoted to current users. The focus has always been on books, but it could easily accommodate other Amazon categories such as toys and video games.

The current operator initially spent 8–10 hours per week operating the business when they purchased it in 2021, but they have not devoted any time to it over the last couple of years. After deciding to focus on their other businesses, they set this aside and chose to sell. Without any inventory to transfer and an offer of training and support, a buyer can feel confident in a smooth transition.
