Having an online presence makes good business sense. Within minutes your customer base is transformed from regional to global allowing potential customers to purchase from you anywhere anytime.
It is expected that 17.5% of all retail sales will be online by 2021. This figure is set to be boosted considerably again following the recent global pandemic and the change in consumer habits.
To sell online you will require an e-commerce platform, a payment gateway and a merchant account. An e-commerce platform is essential as it provides you with the tools to start, run, and grow your online business.
