There are many advantages to using a website instead of a traditional retail shop. You are not restricted to your physical location, your shop is open to a worldwide audience 24/7 and, above all, your overheads are pretty low. An e-commerce site pays no rent and has no utility bills to pay — just the website hosting fee. You also do not need to staff your shop with a manager and assistants. Start your e-commerce site, and your virtual store and begin selling your products or services almost immediately. But preparing an E-Commerce for international audiences requires more than just design, content and launch.
