An Online Shop

If you have something to sell, people from all over world are interested in buying. Even if you don’t have stock to sell, there are businesses out there that are happy to send the product directly from their warehouse to your customer’s door. This method is called dropshipping. All you need to do is advertise there product in your online shop as if it is your stock. You choose the retail price. This can be a very rewarding way to work from home.

What ever method you decide to use, there are some things you require to set up an Online Shop


  • Web Hosting Provider.

    To have a website and work from home you require a web hosting provider.

    A Web Host is a company that will sell you some space and bandwidth on a server. This is where you can set up your website for your online shop for the world to see. Choosing a good provider is very important. Your website must be always online to the world. Any downtime can hurt your reputation. I wouldn’t advise using a free hosting provider. These are using run by amateurs and/or low quality servers/hardware. They are also usually overloaded with accounts because they are free. An overloaded server is slow and your customers will get frustrated with a slow loading website.

  • Domain Name.

    A domain name (URL) is your shop address. For example
    A .com can cost as little as $10-$20 a year.

  • Shopping Cart Software.

    There are many free, open source shopping cart programs out there that are perfect for you. A couple of good ones are Zen Cart and Open Cart. Open Cart is simple to set up. You don’t need to know how to program websites. Open Cart has many built-in features to get you up and running easily.

This is all that is required to get an Online Shop up and running. Just add your products and spread the word! Of course there are some other things to help boost your sales when you work from home. As you may have noticed, a professional Online Shop will always have that little padlock icon displayed in your browser to let you know that your personal information is secured. This will make your customers feel safe. This little bit of security is called a SSL Certificate. One of these will cost you anywhere from $10 and up a year, depending on the level of security you want. For a SSL Certificate to work, you will need to get your Web Hosting Provider to set you up with a Dedicated IP address. A dedicated IP will cost you about $4 a month on top of your hosting fee.
