To start selling online, you will need products to sell and to make decisions about things like:
- How you will accept payments – via real time credit card, a third party payment provider (like PayPal or Stripe), offline card processor (like e-path), bank transfers or money orders?
- How you will price shipping – and how you will deliver your products to your customers
- Your marketing strategy – your point of difference, how you will price your products etc
- How you will make your website stand out from your competition
Before you can start trading you will also need to have a business name and domain name registered and what email addresses you will use.
