Information for Buyers

The business listing I'm interested in lacks information

While we always encourage sellers to create a business for sale listing that is as complete as possible, a business owner is entitled to only advertise what he/she is comfortable with. We would encourage you to use the contact form to get in touch with the business owner to request further information.

How do I get further information on a business or contact the seller?

To get detailed information on a business for sale listed on our site feel free to contact the seller or the broker directly using the contact seller form provided with each listing. Once you contact a seller, it is possible that the seller may want to know more about you before they disclose any financial or other information about their business. Some sellers may also request you sign an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) to ensure their business information remains confidential.

Information for Sellers

How can I improve my listing to attract more buyers?

You can log in at any time to your account and update your listing. We always recommend that you provide a listing that is as detailed as possible while preserving your confidentiality until you are sure you would like to communicate with a prospective buyer.

We provide online tools to create business brochures which help you market your business more effectively. This can then be attached to your listing.

What am I charged for posting a Business or Investment for Sale listing?

All listings are free of charge however please note that a Buyer Data Subscription is required for Business and Investment listings in order to view contact details of the enquiries received from potential investors. No subscription is required for asset listings.
Please see BXB pricing here.

How do I keep myself anonymous while posting a listing?

We understand that selling a business must allow for complete discretion when required. Please note that you are not asked to disclose your business name in a business for sale listing. You also do not need to disclose specifics on your business such as its exact location, website or phone number. Initial communication from the prospective buyer is handled through the contact form when you will receive the contact number and email address of the prospective buyer. At that point you can decide how you’d like to communicate with the prospective buyer.
