Portable Income Opportunities (PIO) – E-Commerce

Online shopping…Almost everyone is shopping online now in some form or another. Maybe you even know someone who talks about their online store and always has extra income to take vacations, splurge on spa treatments, or pay off their mortgage earlier than planned. Perhaps they have even quit their full-time job to focus solely on their online business.

You might think that it is too difficult to set up your own store. Too time-consuming. Too expensive. You couldn’t be further from the truth – even if you are not a tech guru!

What is an E-Commerce Store?

E-Commerce stands for electronic commerce and refers to the buying and selling of goods and services over an electronic network, usually the internet. E-Commerce transactions can be business-to-business, business-to-consumer, consumer-to-business, or consumer-to-consumer.

All that really means is that instead of having a physical store that people walk into, they browse through your product offerings (goods or services) online. Oftentimes, you can be ready to sell your products on the same day you set up the store. It’s that easy!

There are basically 2 methods to establish your online store:

  1. Build your own website. You need to purchase a domain name and hosting package, design your website, Post products and set up a shopping cart system. It is not technically difficult, but it is more time-consuming than option 2.
  2. Go to one of the sites below and sign up to be a seller. From there, you can choose a template, name your store, choose the products you want to sell, and start selling that day.

Popular sites that will host and help you run your E-Commerce Store are listed below.
