E-commerce platforms that can help create online sales

Many Texas entrepreneurs are aware of the money making potential of e-commerce in the modern marketplace. According to a report released by the U.S. Census Bureau, e-commerce sales totaled $80.3 billion during the first quarter of 2015. Analysts expect e-commerce to get even stronger, as today's consumers are increasingly attracted to the convenience of online shopping.

Even businesses that operate brick-and-mortar stores can cash in on the popularity of e-commerce. Setting up an online selling platform can increase sales and draw new customers who may be more likely to spend their money online. Business owners and entrepreneurs that are interested in selling their products through an e-commerce website have a number of platforms available to them.

Platforms like Shopify and Squarespace can help business owners set up their own e-commerce websites. With a variety of detailed templates to choose from, Squarespace can be used by business owners who don't have any computer coding skills. Both Squarespace and Shopify allow users to upload an unlimited amount of inventory to their stores. Other platforms like CommerceHub help startups to connect with sourcing partners in order to build e-commerce businesses.

Online platforms can help established businesses as well as startups to connect with wholesalers and customers for their products. While these connections can be made quickly, it's important to understand that online business relationships may still require contract negotiations. An experienced attorney can assist a new online retailer with planning during the start-up phase of the operations. The attorney can also help ensure that applicable domestic and foreign business regulations are being complied with.
