Choose How To Sell Online

Working out how to sell online can feel overwhelming (we know from firsthand experience). We’re here to help you sort through the most popular choices and find the best way to sell online for you.

Top Four Ways to Sell Online

      1. Ecommerce store builders like Shopify and BigCommerce
      2. WordPress with the WooCommerce Extension (powered by Bluehost)
      3. Marketplaces like Amazon, Etsy and eBay
      4. Social media sites like Facebook

But here’s the thing to remember: you don’t have to choose between them. You can sell online across different channels, without hiring an army of staff, giving up on sleep OR growing another pair of arms.


In a nutshell, ecommerce store builders provide apps that allow you to integrate your online selling with Amazon, Facebook – the works! Linking your online store to your social media or a marketplace can be done at the click of a button.

This means your products are synced with, for example, your Facebook page. So when a customer visits your Facebook page, they’ll see the products listed on your online store. Update a product on your online store, and the product also gets updated on your Facebook page. You can sell online on multiple channels, but manage your business from one place – magic!

It’s why a good store builder is like a smartphone. With your smartphone you can manage your life from one place. In the same way, ecommerce store builders are a one-stop-shop for selling online.
