Benefits of selling online

 Selling online has a number of advantages compared with selling by conventional methods, including the following:

  • Savings in set-up and operational costs. You will not need to pay shop assistants, rent high-street premises, or answer a lot of pre-sales queries.
  • Customer orders can automatically come straight into your orders’ database from the website, reducing the costs of order processing.
  • You can reach a much wider audience as you will be able to be contacted by people worldwide, giving you the ability to increase sales.
  • You can compete with larger businesses.
  • You’ll receive payments more quickly from online transactions.
  • Your business can be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • You should be able to give better customer service and attract more loyal customers.
  • You will be able to track purchases and use data you collect to improve your offering.
  • Your online shop can function as a catalogue for existing customers.

Selling online does not benefit every type of business. Online selling will work best for you if you have:

  • well-defined products or services that can be sold without human intervention in the sales process.
  • fixed prices for all types of potential customers.
  • products or services that can be delivered with a predictable lead time.
