Thinking of Selling Online? Here are some options:
- Paypal “Buy Now” button. If you have a website and one product you’d like to sell, adding a paypal link is a fairly simple option. See sample here. (Paypal also offers a shopping cart option.)
- Online marketplace. There are online marketplaces – often within a category (i.e. Etsy/handmade stuff, Spoonflower/fabric designs) – where you can open a store and sell from there. If you have a website or blog make sure to link to your store. See sample here.
- Ecommerce platform. With tools like Shopify and BigCommerce, you can pick a theme and design a whole website and shopping cart, with many products. Plus you can access your site and make changes from anywhere. See sample here.
If you are computer savvy, you can set up any of these options. A designer/developer can help, especially with setting up a Shopify (or BigCommerce) site. Their themes can be customized to make your website uniquely yours.
