hello mommies! Meron akong online shop. almost 2 years ago malakas yung online shop ko, but nag lie low ako nung nagkaron kami ng restobar. Pwede ko sana pagsabayin kaso kung iisipin matrabaho din kase kahit pano sumagot ng inquiries (PMs,texts,emails) di rin biro yung pag picture ng products, editing, paglagay ng description ng product.. and shipping etc. (may makulit na alaga pa ko. lol) As a buyer, I know turn-off talaga sa mga seller na mabagal magreply. So sabi ko, lie low muna ko.

Regarding Mark-Up, mapapansin nyo sa online stores lalo na sa multiply na pricey yung ibang items na madalas kapareho din nung nasa ibang site. Usually, yung mga mataas mag-presyo ay mga resellers. Pwede kasing yung nakita mong store ay reseller or reseller ng isa pang reseller. So imagine kung ilang patong yun diba.. Di naman masisi  kase di naman sila kikita kung di magpapatubo. Yun lang, di naman natin alam kung reseller lang sila o nananaga lang talaga. hehe

So isip ka muna ano gusto mo ibenta and san ka kukuha nun ibebenta mo.  :) Para mapagisipan din kung pano ka tutubo and kung di ka ba lugi (syempre gagastos ka pa sa gas/shipping fee if sa ibang bansa mo kukuhain yung items..)

Isa pang dapat pag-isipan mabuti e yung courier mo. Okay ang LBC kase mas mabilis lalo na kung nasa province yung client mo.. PERO mas pricey sya kumpara sa ibang courier.If you live in Manila, okay na ang Xend.

Merong couriers na pwedeng mag pickup ng items sa house mo, kung wala naman, hanap ka ng malapit lang sayo. Kase nakakapagod at magastos din bumalik balik sa courier para magship ng items lalo na kung konting items lang un ipapadala mo. in short, lugi ka pa.


**Sa ngayon naghahanda ko kasi plano ko na buksan ulet yung online store ko. Medyo naunsyami lang kase umalis na yung helper namin kaya ngarag pa ako sa bahay.

It depends on what type of online business you have :) If you can find a product that's unique then chances are you will do good. Yun lang, what that unique product is, I have no idea.

you can sell online pwede ka mag create ng account sa http://multiply.com or u can sell at www.ebay.ph. The cheapest courier that i use is MC Express they do free pickups sa house 50 pesos lang within Metro Manila for 1 kilo. Pag mabigat yung packages ko i use 2Go maximum is 3 kilos for only 60 within Metro Manila. I sell at ebay.ph mostly mga books and human nature products

I am very much interested... Pero Where do you get your suppliers ba? How does the online business work? Example, if you like to sell gadgets or accessories? You have to buy it first then you sell it?

Really Really Really Good.. tuwang tuwa ako when I started just last month.. Nagbalak na nga ako paalisin yung umuupa sa amin para magtayo na ng store. kaso mas marami pang sales sa online kesa may store talaga. at free pa. puhunan ko lang ay monthly bill sa internet. hehe

Pero siyempre hindi dahil sa madali at one click away lang ang online business e smooth sailing na, syempre we have to look at the target market first. Dapat akma sa products mo.
Very thankful nga ako dito sa smartparenting. kasi my business is patok sa mga moms. so maganda yung naging start at lalong mas gumaganda pa.

it started as a hobby para sa needs ng daughter ko, tapos sabi ko kahit pang meryenda meryenda lang sa jollibee. now may  nagresell na and makakapag sponsor pa ko sa kids fashion show. ang bilis ng transition,.

mabilis din siya lumaganap at mareach ang iba't ibang klase ng tao. basta pagtutuunan mo ng pansin. :)
mind you, walang planning planning yan. i just make headdresses, intended for my daughter talaga. then upload pictures online.

kung walang bumili. ok lang kasi magagamit padin ng daughter ko. at pwede ko pang as a gift sa family and friends.

online selling lets you have your own time.  if you are up to it,  you can be in front of the computer the whole day.  but if you have other priorities to take care of, your buyers can always send you a message and you can just answer back later on.

also, low overhead cost.  you don't need a physical store, just be seen online and buyers will come.

"Remember that a business is an investment. It's not a “get rich quick” scheme. You need to invest in it, work hard, and in time you will be financially rewarded. As long as you believe in your business and the items you offer, you can truly be successful.”
