I have been running a small craft corporation for a couple of years now.
I make many handmade items that are one of a kind plus wanted to branch out into online sales.
The sizable question was, “where do I begin?”. I started looking into other sales sites like Ebay plus Etsy, these would work, I thought, but, then my pal and I was paying fees plus chopping into my already small profits! Then, I looked into making a page on my social media place that would highlight my corporation plus show pictures of what I had available. The problem with that was that there was no way for a person to pay me plus supply their shipping information. I had to call each person plus get their payment information. Many people today are hesitant to supply debit card information on the iPhone plus I can’t say as I blame them, however after much trial plus error I decided to hire a university student to design plus replace my website on a quarterly basis. They incorporated a PayPal link so that my clients could pay safely plus I would get the information immediately. This was a much more cost effective way to do things as sizable companies that provide these services can be certainly costly. Additionally, since I have my own place I don’t get lost in the sea of other artisans like on those other sales sites. If someone comes to my site, they are only seeing my own designs! Even though I am paying a fee for the upkeep plus the initial place design was a bit lavish, I feel that it was well worth every penny.
