About Us

BusinessesForSale.com has been helping entrepreneurs sell businesses since the mid-1990s. We started as a magazine and began our web journey not long after that when our owner and CEO Andrew Markou graduated from university with an IT Masters and started building a website.

Andrew joined forces with his brother Marcus and together they launched BusinessesForSale.com.

We started out as a bulletin board and over the years the business has grown into a listings engine serving independent sellers and business transfer agents all over the world.

We are a family run, independent company. We have built the world's largest marketplace which now advertises 62,043 businesses for sale in over 145 countries.

The website is proudly run by our team of 32. We have people in London, Sydney, North Carolina and Mexico City.

Our dedicated team are always on hand to provide support and help you make the most out of BusinessesForSale.com – from helping you write your listing to making sure your business is being seen in the right places on the site.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have a low value business can I pay less?

    We have one fixed fee for every seller because every seller will get the same help regardless of the value of their business.

    Every package includes a listing on our website with a money back guarantee if you don't find a buyer within 12 months of your start date. You'll also have access to our online valuation service and a dedicated account manager who will help guide you through the marketing process.

    We are a 1st place Google ranking marketplace platform and we have over 1.2 million buyers visiting the site every month looking to buy businesses. We know our website delivers value to businesses of all values and we have helped 1000s of business owners and brokers sell businesses for more than 20 years.

    There are options to add to your package if you have the budget.

  • Can I pay you a commission?

    We charge a flat fee for advertising your business on our website and this covers the cost of the services we provide to you. We are not able to take commission.

    We are not a broker or an agent and all the businesses on the site are uploaded and maintained by the sellers. We will help you market your business and find a buyer, but we cannot get involved in the actual sale of your business.

    If you wish to find a suitable professional who may be able to help you prepare your business for sale, negotiate the sale or help you with your legal or accounting needs then please visit our Services Directory.

  • Will I receive interest from international buyers?

    We attract interest from 1.2 million buyers every month based in every corner of the world. The bulk of interest will be from the country your business is listed in, however, you may receive interest from other countries.

    Businesses do sell to international buyers. Please respond to every buyer. If an international buyer has shown interest you will need to make sure the buyer in question has the right documentation in place to make this transaction.

    Read our guide to dealing with enquiries.

  • How secure is my data?

    Keeping our customers' data safe is one of our top priorities. We use all the latest technologies to make sure our website, servers and email are secure.

    For more information read our privacy policy.

  • How do I know my buyer leads are genuine?

    We quality check the emails being sent from buyers through our site. Any offending or false responses are blocked from the site before they reach you. All the messages being sent to you should be from genuine buyers and should be followed up as such.
