World is changing the trends day by day by using latest technologies. Few years back, we used to go outside to shop now it is all done over the small screen. Everything is changing. In USA and UK, online businesses are doing great.
In Pakistan, the trend is changing rapidly. There are hundreds of companies who are doing business online in every sector of life. Whether you talk about clothing, shoes, baby, perfumes, electronics, furniture or anything you can think of. But the thing is that can we be the part of this system? Yes it is very easy. All you need is a computer, a little knowledge of internet and a good product to sell.
How To Sell Online:
To sell online, you can do two things. First you can create your own website and sell. Second is to sell on other websites. But to start, you can go for other websites who sells for you. They will charge a nominal fees or commission and you are all set to take your first flight towards your very own online business. But in between, there are hundreds of questions but answering them all in a single page is little hectic. You can ask me by posting your questions on comments box. I will answer.
First option is creating your own website. It may required you to have a little knowledge of web designing as you will also have to design the logos, banners and product shots. You can start it by choosing any online website creation tool like shopify. They charge you 3000 PKR per month and you’re ready to roll out. Just choose your theme and add products. Rest shopify will do.
Payment and Shipping Option in Pakistan:
Now the question is that how you will be paid? For this, you will have to choose Cash On Delivery (COD) service from any courier company like Leopards Courier, TCS or BlueEx. Remember that in online business, trust and service is more important than anything. When you give bad service, you will hurt your business. When you break the trust of the customer by dispatching a bad quality product, it will also hurt your business. All you need is trust, care and service for your well maintained business. Always prefer good shipping company for your customers. Leopards is best but little expensive. BlueEx is cheap rate wise but a bad service though they are the pioneer of COD in Pakistan. TCS is best but paid. You can also use Pakistan Post VP service where other companies don’t go. There is a complete procedure of everything and every courier company. For Leopards and BlueEx, call their representative and ask for COD account opening. Once your account is created, you can start booking. Payment will be given after a month through checque. Pakistan Post doesn’t require any account opening. Just pack your parcel and fill the VP form.
