Join us throughout November as Superfast Business Wales trainer Austin Walters answers the questions you asked us about digital.

You asked: How do I sell online?

Today there are multiple solutions to selling online. You could create an e-commerce store with WordPress and WooCommerce, or you could use a ready built “online shop” such as Shopify. There are pros and cons to both. Shopify is ready built, hosted for you, and comes with many features already built in. All you need to do is set up your company details, input the products, confirm shipping and postage costs, and go live. Read our Shopify guide for more.

With WordPress and WooCommerce, you start from scratch and build the site first, then you enter all your products, etc.

We can’t overlook platforms such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy and other emerging marketplaces either. The perceived downside of selling your products through these platforms is you pay a commission on each sale. However, they come with a huge upside and that’s a ready-made hungry crowd of buyers.

If you sell services rather than products, you may want a non-commerce website or perhaps a funnel sales approach. Also consider marketplaces such as fiverr and People Per Hour.
