How To Choose A Store That Suites Your Needs
There are three basic approaches to setting up your own store. And your choice of those three depends on several factors.
Regardless of which store you set up, you need customers. So much of your decision should be based on how you intend to get customers.
Setting Up A Store In With An Aggregator
If you put your store where the customers are, you will save a lot of time and effort. And that is easy to do. Just use the store facilities that you find at major shopping points that attract millions of customers per day.
These aggregators have systems that somewhat constrain you and that cost you monthly fees. But these costs are offset by the customers that visit your store. They do the advertising for you. You get on line fast and easy.
These are the best places to start. Each of these sites gets millions of visitors per day and you will get your share.
EBay Store - This is a very popular option. eBay gets huge traffic and it is growing all the time.
Amazon Store - They get mixed reviews from people. But do look to compare.
