This is a common question for many small businesses, there’s a real stigma regarding making the move online and accepting orders – unnecessarily so in our opinion.
Sure there are some companies with the skills and know-how in-house to open an online store, maybe with a bit of effort they can muddle through and set up a website – that’s great. However, the pitfalls of selling online are far greater than those associated with a regular website. There are lots of additional considerations.
The elephant in the room, so many websites are launched prematurely or without proper consideration for the security required when handling cash transactions. There are other requirements too such as PCI compliance; this is a set of standards endorsed by most merchant banks that sellers need to adhere to.
