A commerce Website

Post by Dr-Chambers »

Greetings, how's everybody doing?

There are some things that I want to sell but I don't want to go through Amazon or any other company.

What do I need to do to create a site that can allow people to buy from me directly?

Any information will be of great help. Thank you in advance.

Do you want to build and host it yourself or have something a bit more "ready"?

There's always https://www.shopify.com/

yeah, shopify is good for beginners, especially if you're selling products that need shipping. if you're selling virtual products that are on-site (like access to a page with a specific video for example) Woocommerce works quite well, but the setup has a bit of a learning curve....but it's worth getting into it.

Thank you Ayu. Wouldn't mind something a bit more ready as well, but I don't mind building and hosting.

Thank you Bad_Brain.

Funny you mentioned doing video cause that's one of the plan. But I'm thinking of doing it as a sort of streaming type download that www.payloadz.com allows after you've uploaded it with a price.
