I had been observing the general buying trend for a while and realized I should start selling online. The industry seemed very promising with endless opportunities. My only apprehension was the onboarding process, but on the contrary, it was extremely easy. It only had one form to fill and a few documents to upload, after which all you had to do was list your products and start selling. It is encouraging to see that my constant effort of getting excellent products at good rates is leading to three times growth in sales online.
