What can we sell online?
The answer to the question of what you can sell online is delivered by the law that governs online sales:
any purchase of new or used goods; any service, representing the paid work of a person (online training, computer repair, etc.), including accommodation, transport, catering and leisure services.
Note that it is forbidden to sell tobacco on the internet or by mail (prohibition of any distance marketing) as well as all illicit products such as drugs, weapons … etc.
How to sell without a site? Or sell on the internet?
Is it possible to sell on the internet without a site? The question may seem incongruous when it is not at all. Indeed, there are many ways to sell online without being an e-commerce expert or having an online sales site. Among all these opportunities, I suggest that we stop on Facebook as well as the sites that offer you to sell your products for free.
Is it possible to sell on Facebook?
There are many groups on the social network that allow people to sell their old things, whether it’s old clothes, shoes, etc. But is it legal to sell on Facebook? The answer is yes!
Note, however, that it will not be possible to charge your buyer directly on Facebook. Indeed, Facebook promotes the connection between a buyer and a seller but does not deal with financial intermediation between these two players.
Thus, to sell online on Facebook, you will need to open a Paypal account or request a transfer from your buyer before sending him your product.
How to sell online for free?
How to sell on the internet for free? As an individual, the simplest solution to sell online without spending money is to offer your products on classified ad websites and similar sites. Widely used by millions of users each month.
Be aware that there are many classifieds sites that allow you to sell your old business. Some are specialized in themes: jewellery, clothing, services, etc. The easiest way to sell on the internet for free is to type in your favourite search engine “classified ad site + the theme that interests you”.
Be careful, before you start creating your ad, make sure that the site is 100% free. Indeed, some sites have hidden fees.
Entrepreneur: how to sell online?
You have the soul of an entrepreneur; you want to open an online sales site but you don’t know how to go about it? Do not panic, here are some different tips to get you started in the best conditions.
What status to sell online?
What steps should you take to become a web entrepreneur? What corporate status to adopt? Is self-employed status sufficient to open an online store?
Is auto-entrepreneur status a good idea?
Is it interesting to sell on the internet with the status of auto-entrepreneur? And it is normal, the status of auto-entrepreneur is very simple to create and is compatible with a salaried activity. In terms of approach, creating a self-employed status is very accessible. However, is it a good idea to start an online sales business?
If you wish to launch an activity to grant yourself additional income to your salary, the status of auto-entrepreneur will be sufficient. You will not be able to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars but enough to supplement your wages and treat yourself to a better vacation.
When those around me learned that I was working in e-commerce, I often had the same questions: What to sell online? Which product to sell? Where to get supplies? Which products work?
In my opinion, there are no right or wrong answers to these questions. On the internet, any product can be sold. For example, I recently saw that it was possible to have someone you don’t like delivered an envelope full of glitter which is very difficult to remove.
On the internet, there is no limit, as long as, as we saw earlier, it remains within the framework of the law (a legal product). However, I give you several very important tips for finding a product to sell online:
Position yourself in a niche, that is to say, an area where competition is still underdeveloped and/or in a very specific product category. Do not try to sell shoes, wine, clothing or electronic cigarettes. Concentrate on one sector of activity and invest all your energy in this category.
What to sell online? Your passion! It’s that simple. If you are going to open an online store to sell your products, you will spend your whole days around the theme of these products. So, I advise you to choose a product to sell on the internet in a field that interests you, that fascinates you.
For example, if you are passionate about dance or video games, see what it would be interesting to sell in this area. If you are passionate, there is a good chance that other people are interested in this one and thus in the products that you will sell.
How to sell on the internet without stock?
Selling on the internet without stock is a great idea to get started in e-commerce when you have few means and / or are still working as an employee in a company (and therefore you have little time available).
Selling online without stock is called drop shipping. The concept is quite simple: you open an online store, you negotiate with a supplier a drop shipping contract and each time you make a sale, it is the supplier who will send the product directly to the customer. Dropshipping allows you to be able to sell products online without having them in stock.
One thing is certain, if your objective is to sell on the internet without stock with an auto-entrepreneur status, it will be necessary to negotiate high margin rates with your suppliers. Indeed, as seen earlier, you will need a high margin rate to successfully earn a full salary.
