There are so many different options for selling online that it can make your head spin. What is the best place to start selling online?
Starting on someone else’s platform is the easiest route. It’s the easiest because you don’t have to understand, build, host, or secure anything. It is all done for you. All you have to do is to pay the monthly fee to the platform supplier, upload images of your products, write the descriptions and set the price.
I wrote a long article about which platform is the best when you are just starting out selling online. I cover marketplace sellers and standalone stores run on software as a service, (SAAS) platforms. It’s not about recommending particular platforms but about understanding what the benefits and downsides are for different choices you might make. Take a look.
