As a business owner you might have been putting off selling your products online due to the worries about costs, being complicated and the overall hassle of getting it set up. We can gladly tell you gone are the days of it being a long drawn out process with many complicated tasks required. We can also tell you it’s not that expensive anymore and in most cases selling your products online via E-commerce is free to set up, apart from the development costs, which again are not much due to the free plugins now available that can work seamlessly with your website.
Today there are free E-commerce plugins for most website build platforms like WordPress. These simply upload to your website and with just a few clicks and tweaks your website is ready to go to sell online. It really is easy to get started and gone are the days where there are hundreds or thousands of pounds worth of development to get started.
Payments can be taken by many different platforms too, all with different prices. PayPal offer an easy payment platform that works well and blends in perfectly with most E-commerce platforms. Obviously they do charge a percent so always make sure you understand what fees are involved. There are other payment options too such as credit or debit card payment companies but again these do charge a percent so may eat into your profit. Not ideal if your profit margins are only small.
It’s also easy to upload your products to your website once the E-commerce plugin is installed. Normally this is done via an easy admin section, so you just enter a few details about the product, prices etc, postage options and then images and upload. Most platforms nowadays let you do things like add stock number and even special discount codes you can email to your customers. You can literally run your own online store quickly and easily.
