Merchat Seller is built with PHP. The website is built and hosted by Squarespace. The iOS app was built with Swift using Xcode. And lastly the Android app was built using Android Studio respectfully.

None, this project is fully complete. No other modifications are needed to continue business after the sale of this project.
Do you have any traffic ?
Yes, since February 22 there has been over 1,700 views. This is due to Facebook Ads, Google Ads, Instagram and word of mouth.
Why are you selling ?
Unfortunately, I do not have the time to continue growing Merchat due to personal issues. I do think it's a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in running a unique online service.
How can the future owner turn the project into a business ?
Merchat provides two paid services. The first is Merchat Seller a fully featured e-commerce platform, similar to Shopify. Merchat Seller is purchased for a one-time price of $149.99. The user is able to install Merchat Seller on their own web hosting service of choice. 30-days of phone and email support is included with the purchase. However, the user has the option to renew this service every month for $19.99. Included is an app for both iOS & Android that allows a user to manage their store on the go. These apps were built but never released. The second service is Merchat Trade, a service that connects users to suppliers from all around the world. Merchat communicates on a users behalf to find the right supplier for any product they are looking to sell online. Merchat handles everything from customization to shipping and everything in between. This service is $99.99 per product. A future owner can profit by up-charging the monthly Merchat Help service, host Merchat Seller for a recurring monthly fee as well as adding multiple leveled tiers of Merchat Trade.
