How to open an online store and how much it costs

E-commerce is developing very strongly lately. Online stores are opening every year, and that not a month. When you create an online store, there are many advantages, active interaction with customers, brand recognition and more opportunities for small businesses. I have decided to open an online store, the latest trends, and I do not know what platform to choose, my business is men's shoes for women. With whom can I seek advice on this issue?


I am currently doing research on ecommerce stores myself and the first one that comes to mind is Shopify. It targets a global ecommerce market. Creating an account is free thereafter, Shopify charges transaction fees, but it depends on the pricing plan you choose for your store. Example, Shopify offers three pricing plans: Shopify Basic costs $29 per month, with 2.9% + 30¢ per online transaction. The main Shopify plan costs $79 per month, with 2.6% + 30¢ per transaction.

I recommend having your brand on the social selling app Poshmark. On there you focus on fast delivery and really nice packaging for a pleasant experience for the buyer, and rack up 5-star reviews and sales traction and revenue. This is a great way to expand your network as a seller and learn the marketplace. On one of my Poshmark accounts I grew it to 22k followers in a month. You can employ bot software that mimics you being active on the platform. Then every item you newly list for sale in your shop gets added to your follower’s feeds. Once you’re ready to launch your private standalone shop under your business domain I recommend Shopify. You can research your costs on their site, all platforms carry transaction fees, but sites like Shopify save you the trouble of hiring a web developer. Market through advertising, influencers and social media to drive traffic. Feel free to reach out to me for more advice. Good luck!

You could also consider hiring an e-commerce consultant who specializes in helping businesses choose the best e-commerce platform for their needs.

I already have an online store ready to be published, if your products are, and selling by percentage means that for each product that will be sold, I will take 1% of it and the rest is for you, and this allows me to continue my work. If you want more details, contact me
