Do you have something to sell? Or do you accept donations? Then you need an online store.
Why an Online Store?
Because you’ll sell more.
Many people prefer the convenience of shopping online. They simply select their item(s), enter a few key pieces of information, click “Purchase” and they’re done.
What happens if you don’t have an online store? They either have to visit your bricks and mortar place of business, or print out an order form, fill it out and mail it in.
The more difficult it is to buy from you, the less likely it is people will make the effort.
Creating an Online Store
You have lots of options for your online store:
- A full online store on your own website
- “Prepackaged” stores, hosted by someone else, that you can customize
- Standardized eCommerce offerings by PayPal, Google, Amazon and others
I can help you choose the option that’s best for you, and then help you implement your choice.
