Now that you have your hardware or software product as at least a minimum viable product, it’s time to sell online. You have a number of options.
You can compare e-commerce store providers here.
My recommendations follow (in order):
-Purchasing a domain (namecheap)
hosting (GoDaddy Deluxe (Linux))
Purchasing and installing SSL certificate
Installing WordPress on the server
Purchasing and installing a premium eCommerce theme and demo content.
end with a final completed site
Godaddy Quick Shopping Cart ($25 per month)
- $300 up front ($25/mo) – cancel if you don’t like it for a pro-rated refund. There are a number of “free” things that you get your first year (Merchant Account + SSL) that will be renewed on year 2. If you’re not making enough money to afford these costs by year 2, you should shut the company down.
BigCommerce ($25 per month with 14-day free trial)
Shopify ($14-$30 per month with 14-day free trial)
Custom website (for a web and database developer, this is an option)
- Payment Processors: Paypal, Stripe, Square. You can use any of the aforementioned payment processors and integrate with your own custom solution if you’re a programmer
- Google Analtyics for website metrics and tracking
- Cleverbridge – If you’re planning on massive sales, you can reach out and they may provide you an online website for 10% of revenue + $200 setup fee
