This article is incredibly valuable for anyone who is hoping to make an Amazing Exit one day. Read through it and get in touch with us to share what you are doing to improve the transferability of your Amazon business.

No matter how valuable your Amazon business is, if it isn’t transferable, you can never sell it to a new owner. And while not everyone starts a business to sell it to a new owner, later on, selling is a nice option to have. The ease with which a business could be run by someone other than its current owner or team is determined by its transferability.

The more transferable a business is, the more valuable it is to a potential buyer. So here are five key ways to improve the transferability of your Amazon business and increase your chances of profitable sales one day.
