You’re now ready to invest in a scalable, robust, next-generation, customisable system.
At Pigtail Pundits, you can opt for off-the-shelf, next generation shopping carts that can be customised at will.
If it's your first online store, then we'd recommend starting off with a low investment. The best solutions for you are the hosted platforms.
Pros: Low investment entry. Spare your money for marketing rather than waste it just on the build. Get traction and then graduate to a custom shop.
Cons: Cannot customise your store much. But that's a problem you can get to rather than start off with.
Search for "top hosted shopping platforms" on Google and do some research. Another alternative is to try the major shopping portals which allow you to open a store. In India, you can look at Ebay, Amazon, Snapdeal, Flipkart, ShopClues, etc. All allow multiple vendors to sell their merchandise.
Pros: You get to sell at a place where lots of people flock. Get traction and visibility for your merchandise. Start selling online.
Cons: You need to part with a hefty commission. Build this into your price.
Here's wishing you Happy Selling.
