    Best e-commerce site

    Anyone have any recommendations ?
    Would like to set up my own online shop and then sit back and watch the money roll in.

    What do you want to sell? How would you market it? Where would you get your supplies from? How will you get visitots to trust you and buy?

    I deal with ecommerce sites and it's no way as easy as it looks. I would say a good 70% of new ecom sites fail as they don't have enough to market their site and get out there. There are thousands of sites in each category so you need to have a reason why your visitors should buy from you (called a USP)

    You could dropship, where you sell items but hold no stock, you then order the items from the supplier and they send it out for you.

    Both of my companies were run through them. Very cheap and easy to setup.

    thanks, I have unique product(s), designed by myself. Understand that the biggest hurdle would be getting trust from consumers. Not easy I can imagine.

    I have done something along the lines of something similar for another member on here, he sells a unique product and I got him the sales he wanted.

    Depending on how many you want to sell, the target audience and the selling price, it could be better to just go for a 5 page website which says about your product, why they should buy it and how to buy.

    Send me a PM and I will give you my expertise on how to market your idea ;-)
