Setting up an e-commerce site can be quite daunting you will need to consider so many things:
- Do I offer a big enough rage of products ?
- Can I integrate an online store with my existing business ?
- How do I handle onlide credit card sales?
- Will my shop be found on Google and other search engines?
- How much will it all cost?
Aside from the purely business decisions your online site will need both speed and reliability. When a customer walks into a shop he may spend a couple of minutes or more before deciding he cannot find what he wants. Naturally as a good salesman, you make sure that all your products are easy to find. After all, why risk losing a sale once a potential customer has walked in the door? With an online shop, potential buyers make this decision in seconds. If your site is slow or they cannot see what they are looking for at first glance they move on.
