E-Commerce – Marketplace or set up your own site?

Let’s be honest, actually going shopping physically is slowly becoming a thing of the past as e-commerce takes over the market. The days of haggling over the price of an item with shopkeepers is coming to an end with the ease and comfort of online shopping. These days, no one wants to roam around in markets for stuff they can get at the click of a button.

E-commerce sites allow us to buy items of all categories with so many varieties that a person will most probably tire before the items run out. For businesses, e-commerce is important to keep up with customer interests. Sellers need to decide whether they want to sell on existing sites like Flipkart, Amazon etc and share their profits with them or set up their own e-commerce site to save money and maximize profits.

I think it’s fair to say the answer to the above question is a rather straight-forward one. Setting up your own e-commerce site has numerous benefits as I will highlight later on but initially, these are some fundamental points for sellers to ponder upon –

  • How much does setting up my own e-commerce website cost?
  • Customization aspects in relation to the website.
  • Security
  • Support
