There are many ways to get started in eCommerce. You may decide to build your own website and online shop or join an existing eCommerce marketplace. Or you may choose to sell your products or services on social media channels.
Some business may be looking to add online sales as a new revenue stream to complement their brick and mortar business. Other entrepreneurs are choosing to launch virtual businesses where all sales are happening online. If you are considering a virtual business, we recommend you check out some of our additional resources under the Plan section of this website.
The journey is different for each business based on the available time, resources, and business model. Your path to online sales will be as unique as your business!
