How to start selling online

You’ve got an established website that seems to be bringing in a reasonable amount of leads for you and now you would like to start selling some of your products online. How can you go about it?
Here are a couple of principles to adhere to in this situation:
  • Try not to disturb your existing website if it’s doing OK. So any eCommerce solution should be an add-on to your existing site not a complete replacement.
  • implement your inline shop in stages so that you can test the waters and get your business processes sorted to handle the physical aspects of selling online – packaging and shipping for example.
  • It’s a good idea to start with a simple PayPal shop to sell a few product lines before moving to a full-blown eCommerce platform.
  • You will obviously have to take payments online. PayPal is an excellent way to do this for small businesses starting out in eCommerce.
We have considerable experience implementing eCommerce systems and offer an incremental approach to customers with WordPress websites.If you would like to find out more then take a look at our website or call us on 01568 609800  for an informal chat.
