In our previous post, we discussed how to promote your business on social media.
Now that your social media accounts are ready to go, how can you manage orders and process payments? There are many eCommerce tools to choose from. Shopify can be a great choice because unlike Etsy or Amazon, you have complete control over your eCommerce site. This includes everything from look and feel to prices and promotions. Shopify customers also enjoy single-touch checkout from any store hosted on the platform.
Etsy has also become a household name for buying handcrafted items from anywhere in the world. As a seller, you can get up and running quickly without a lot of site customisation. Simply upload the photos of your products and add descriptions. Etsy also offers peace of mind to sellers and buyers alike because all payments are processed on a secure, SSL-encrypted platform, and fraud detection systems provide an extra layer of security.
These and other popular eCommerce sites are not only secure and easy to use, they also integrate easily with website builders like Wix.
In our next post, we’ll discuss how to move from setting up your eCommerce site to preparing your business for big sales events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
