- Current Situation
- DragonFlip is the largest eCommerce marketplace in Germany to date. However, interested sellers would have to pass their requirements before they are taken in as clients.
- They deal mostly with either private buyers or strategic buyers. The choice would depend on the kind of business being sold, the value or cost of the business and the sellers operational set-up.
- The pre-vetting period is important to determine the seller’s motivation in selling the e-business.
- DragonFlip’s client is the seller and not the buyer. The buyer would have to exercise their own due diligence on the e-business they are interested in.
- In Germany, the eCommerce market place is still new, so most banks are wary of providing financing for buyers. These banks tend to be stricter on document requirements.
- The transparency of the seller on the business condition and contracts of the e-business is key to ensuring a successful sale.
