To start selling online, you will need products to sell and to make decisions about matters 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, a domain name registered along with email addresses that you will use.
