    After 10 years of successful online selling I’ve decided to make some changes and follow a new but related direction, so I’m considering selling (attempting?) my ecommerce site based on The EKM platform. I turn over iro £55k so small beer for some. The niche is hand made picture frames for artists so it needs to attract somebody with experience or who wants to hit the ground running. Are there any forums or websites that are recommended
    For me to start my research? I suspect this might be a hard sell but you never know, this year has seen a large increase in online sales and I’m no exception an I would expect the trend to continue.

    My early research suggests that Flippa is to be avoided.

    The site can be sold as an ecommerce site.
    Which isn't the same as selling the job. Which would be worth more but rather more niche than a website is.

    If your business is UK based you could try uk.businessesforsale I believe they have an eCommerce section.

    I presume you're making the frames yourself rather than buying them in from suppliers?
