How to Start E-Commerce Business:
E-Commerce is actually known as Electronic Commerce, now electronic commerce means where the trading and commercial activities are done over the online medium such as the internet. So in other words E-Commerce is the trading , the buying and the selling of goods and services over the internet.
Some perfect examples of the E-Commerce business would be those online Shopping websites such as that of E-bay, Amazon Etc. All these are online shopping websites where we can easily buy or make a purchase of goods and commodities.
But starting such kind of E-commerce business would be a completely different ball game, since this does heavily depend on the Internet and Information Technology. Thus starting a E-Commerce website to buy and sell your products and services would probably not be the same, as important aspects such as heavy internet dependence, great level of online knowledge and information technology, do exist.
However starting a new venture and stepping your foot down for the very first time in the E-Commerce business would a bit different as compared to any other trading activity, since all the transactions are required to be done online.
The very first thing would be to register you e-commerce business in India, this being the common thumb rule for every kind of business which are being conducted in India. I am very sure that this would be like a splinter, as to how to register an “Online Shopping Company in India” but all those trouble minds out there can chill out because there is no unique or special license or registration which is required for this purpose.
There are many professionals such as Chartered Accountants and Company Secretaries out there, who would do the needful for you. So you can be rest assured that leaving this botheration in their hands would help you to concentrate on more important aspects of your business.
Procuring the goods and services for the purpose of selling them on your online shopping website is another aspect to be taken care of, since without it your business hardly seems to exist at all.
Moreover, another and the last factor, which is required to be taken care of with great detailed attention is the logistics and the shipping, without which you just cannot even imagine carrying on your trading and commercial activities. Thus this stage is the final but most important as it concludes and finalizes the commercial transaction.
