What is the timeline for selling an online business in this current market? With seller financing offered?

I need to sell my e-commerce business to do to a promotion at my current job. I just don't have the time for both anymore. I need to sell quickly and will consider owner financing but don't want to give it away. Any tips?

It doesnt matter whether you are selling a web business or apples. The faster you want to sell something, the more agressive you need to be with the pricing/terms.

That is not to say that you have to give it away, but you are not dealing from a position of strength. Perhaps you should consider selling with an earn out. That way you can offer terms that will appeal to more buyers and still have an opportunity to get a better buck for it in the long run...just a thought

What type of company are you selling?

Without knowing a lot of further details, anything that might be offered in the way of advice could be highly misleading. My best suggestion is to consult with a responsible Business Broker.
