Setting Up an e-Commerce Web Site for Small, Home-Based Retail Businesses

Here are the resources for a new hour-long learning session that I’m leading at the Queen Street Commons, this Wednesday Oct. 19, at 12:00 noon.

The session is called “Setting Up an e-Commerce Web Site for Small, Home-Based Retail Businesses.” If you’ve never had the chance to try e-Commerce for your business, the set-up time and fees of a full e-Commerce site can be … well … intimidating.

Web-based payment tools like PayPal have made small business over the internet more manageable and easy-to-implement. This session focuses on how you can set up and use PayPal to do small-scale sales directly from most existing websites, with a manageable amount of time, effort, and hassle.

In this one-hour session, we travel from PayPal set-up to putting items up for sale. Check out the PDF of the session.
