I’ve sold a lot of things online over the years. I’m on eBay and Etsy and Amazon and I’ve sold one-off items through my blogs and Craigslist and oh so many other ways. . . But last week, I decided to to fulfill my dream of building out my own ecommerce store.
Did I say dream? Try nightmare.
What’s crazy is, I’m a web-savvy gal. I’ve been building websites since the days of HTML coding and GeoCities but this ecommerce thing is throwing me for a loop. The trouble is there are so many options and so many pros and cons to each of those options, I’ve run myself in circles. One has all of the US postal options but the formatting was lousy. The other has great formatting but I have to pay for postal options. I could just pay a high fee per month right out of the gate, but honestly, I’m not sure it would help. How do people without any tech background do it?
