Benefits of selling online

Eminent Member

Selling online has a number of advantages over selling by conventional methods, including:

* Making savings in set-up and operational costs. You don't need to pay shop assistants, rent high-street premises, or answer a lot of pre-sales queries.
* Reducing order-processing costs - customer orders can automatically come straight into your orders database from the website.
* Reaching a global audience, thereby increasing sales opportunities.
* Competing with larger businesses by being able to open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
* Being able to receive payment more quickly from online transactions.
* Attracting customers who would not normally have investigated your type of high-street outlet.
* Improving your offerings using the data gathered by tracking customer purchases.
* Using your online shop as a catalogue for existing customers.
