What If You Didn't Have To Spend Hours
Doing Your Books Each Month?
My experience with Summit eCommerce Advisors has been fantastic, literally unbelievable.
I'm a very thorough person, and when it came to doing the bookkeeping for my e-comm store, I'd go through every single order, write every number down on an Excel Spreadsheet, and this task took me forever, literally a full working day, 9-10 hours per month.
Now, because of Summit, things have changed. I don’t have to spend all that time, and I actually can feel confident there aren't any typos or mistakes. And it’s unbelievable how organized my books are. It's been a game changer.
I cannot explain how much I recommend Summit eCommerce Advisors to everyone interested in running an organized business and staying up to date!

The Summit Story
Our Founder Learned The Hard Way
Co-Founder of Summit eCommerce Advisors
I struggled with bookkeeping for years. Even though I owned a profitable eCommerce business.
Early on, it was overwhelming. I knew I was “supposed to” do it for taxes, but I had no idea how.
I hired a bookkeeper from Upwork, but that ended badly. Then I hired a US-based accounting firm. With them, my books were “getting done.” But I didn’t understand the reports they gave me, or their explanations. It was really frustrating.
And shockingly, the accountants couldn’t answer simple questions I had, like –
“Where is the money actually going?”
“Why doesn’t my bank balance reflect your reports?”
Plus, their reports always seemed wrong, but I could never figure out why. So I fired them, and hired another accounting firm. The results were the same.
After years of this, I was fed up. I decided to answer my own questions. I dove in, and I went deep.
What were the results?
I learned to do all the reporting, and answer my questions. But the most surprising result was that the stress melted away!
By knowing my actual business performance, there was no more wondering. I knew how much money I could take out of my business for my family, without the fear that I would cause a big problem later.
That’s when I learned that bookkeeping was about more than just taxes.
In March of 2019, I sold my primary eCommerce business. With my new freedom, I decided to give back to the eCommerce community that helped me along the way.
So, I started helping others with their books, without asking for anything in return.
Their response surprised even me.
They couldn’t believe I could solve their problems so easily. They thought the stress of uncertainty was just part of running a business.
While we talked, I watched their faces change in amazement. They told me I needed to help as many people as I could, to find the peace that I have.
Summit eCommerce Advisors was born. I learned the hard way so you don’t have to!
Co-Founder of Summit eCommerce
My new bookkeeping company grew so quickly that I needed help!
At a local entrepreneurs’ meetup, a long time friend surprised me by giving excellent advice on running the business. So I asked – “how do you know so much about bookkeeping businesses?”
“Oh, I used to run bookkeeping businesses,” he said!
I knew Jason as a digital marketing entrepreneur, with experience in eCommerce. I didn’t know that he had more than 20 years of experience in bookkeeping.
I asked him to talk more, and discovered that his vision was remarkably similar to mine. So we decided to become partners.
Jason understands entrepreneurs. And he knows that bookkeeping is often baffling to business owners.
His favorite compliment has always been: “You make my finances so understandable! I finally know what’s going on in my business!”
Together, we’re leading the charge to bring financial clarity to eCommerce businesses like never before.
We used to spend hours and hours...
keeping our own detailed books, and it started to fall by the wayside because of how much time it was taking.
Summit eCommerce Advisors not only save me and my team hours of bookkeeping, their reports also allow us to see the information we need in a moment's notice

Summit was a business saver and sanity saver for me.
I have nothing but praise for them. I was pulling my hair out and wasting way too much valuable time trying to figure out my finances on my own. I resorted to paying an accountant & bookkeeping service way too much, and even then none of it seemed accurate and still did not make any sense to me.
Then I found Summit. I now have easy access to my financial information. I understand my books now, and I don't have all that headache.
It's like magic! I highly recommend Summit eCommerce Advisors to anyone.

Regular Accountants Aren't The Answer.

The amount of value packed into Summit eCommerce is insane!
I've been running an e-commerce store for the past 2 years, and up until now, I've been manually entering EVERY SINGLE order into a spreadsheet to determine my profitability. And by entering orders, I mean a whole list of info, like date, order #, products ordered, COGS, taxes, etc., etc., etc. And on top of that, I was manually cross-checking my credit card statement with invoices, which was time consuming on its own!
Because of the time involved and the monotony, I would always find myself months behind on my books - and most likely letting hundreds of dollars (or more) possibly slip through the cracks.
This is a game-changer on a very important business task. I'd wouldn't recommend any other service out there!

Do You Plan To Sell Your Business Someday?
The very first step is making sure your books are clean and accurate.
Any buyer or broker will require financial reports for the life of your business – it’s the first thing they’ll ask for.
You can start now, or do it all at once later, when it’s a bigger pain.
Don’t let a surprise in your books kill your deal.
We’ve seen it happen at the 11th hour.
The deal is almost ready to go through, and the buyer finds an error… whoops.
Give your buyer (and yourself) confidence in your deal.
Command a solid asking price, and be confident that your business is ACTUALLY worth it.
Exude confidence because you know there’s nothing squishy. No wiggle room.
Speak with authority about your business. You’ve built a valuable asset.

I have much more peace of mind, now that my books are in order.
Before Summit eCommerce, I was always playing catch up with my books. The more time had passed since the last update, the longer it took to fix, and the less confidence I had in my numbers.
I'm very glad I found this service when I did!
