Introduce your business and tell us your story: How did you decide on what to sell, and how did you source your products?
We've been selling Apple accessories since 2010 via local online marketplaces and business was great; after knowing about Shopify, we decided to take our business a step further and create a full-scale e-commerce website! We source our products through local distributors and suppliers.
How did you earn your first sales? Which channels are now generating the most traffic and sales for you?
Facebook sharing got us our first sales. Our online store garners the most sales.
Tell us about the back-end of your business. What tools and apps do you use to run your store? How do you handle shipping and fulfillment?
Out of Stock by Shopapps allows our customers to pre-order out-of-stock items or choose to be notified via email and SMS when an item is back in stock. We handle shipping and fulfillment through a fulfilment warehouse.
What are your top recommendations for new store owners?
Always seek the support of your suppliers. If they do not support you, find one who does. Being successful in business takes two. Always stand your ground and never be bullied into submission. Find the right products that consumers want and focus on fulfilling those needs.
