How much money does Ryan make?
The revenue for Shoprocket was reported as $10k/month at the end of 2019 (source).
The financial details of Uploadfiles.io are a bit clearer, as Ryan announced that he’d put the site up for sale on Flippa in May 2020.
Per the Flippa listing, the asking price for Uploadfiles.io was set to $450,000. Reported revenue for the previous six months was $9,462/month, with $8,262/month of that being profit.
(The previous six months were much better, with an average revenue of $25,913/month.)
Adding up the revenue for those two businesses gives us about $19.5k per month.
