My Story to Start an eCommerce Business from Scratch

It was the time when I bought VPI Hosting plan. I was paying about Rs. 3000 to Rs. 4000 per month. I had kept my blog and my ecommerce website on it. I had installed wordpress template on it. I could not know, how can I operate my ecommerce website. It was difficult for me. I used different ways for selling my products to my customers.

1. Use Google Form

I have made the google form and installed it in my website just below the product detail. If anyone wants to buy from me. He has to fill the detail and tell me how will he pay me. Soon, I find, it was not interactive.

2. Installed eCommerce Template

There was lots of eCommerce template. But no one is successful. Website opening speed was big issue

3. Many Times My eCommerce Website Hacked 

I faced that my ecommerce website was hacked. I was very sad. I was very disappointed from it. Both hosting and wordpress.

4. Decided to Go to Google Blogger 

I exported all data from wordpress. I told good bye to hosting because I was not enough money to pay its big charges. Google Blogger was free. So, I imported my all contents

5. I Lost My All eCommerce Website Traffic

Link URL of same content was different. So, I lost my all traffic which I was in wordpress in my self hosting. It has decreased my sale. But I did leave my power.

6. Bought Google Blogger eCommerce Template 

Now, again, I started to promote my ecommerce business. I bought ecommerce template which can easily install on Google blogger. Few months, I got, great results from it. I had started cash on delivery option. I received new order information on email. So, I called the customer to pay in my bank or please get it after paying money to postman. I got good responses. My ecommerce website sale was huge. Customer were happy because they receive product COD. I was happy because I was zero hosting cost.

7. Google Blogger has Stopped to Send the Order Information on my email 

I did not find the order information. So, I was again sad. Customers were feel angry because they were not getting products on the time. So, I has taken the help of template maker. He told that template is  ok but you have stopped messages from company. But, I never give up.

8. I Used Normal Website Template 

I have used normal template for ecommerce website. For buying, I just told my mobile no. by writing buy now and call me at my mobile no. Sale was less because customer did not buy online by paying online.

9. Partnership with PayUmoney and Paypal

Now, I installed Buy Now button of payumoney and paypal by partnership with this two payment gateway.
I sold more than Rs. 1,00,000 product only through payumoney button in my website. So, I felt happy. Paypal button also helped me to grow my business outside India. Still, I am on Google blogger free hosting and I have planned to go again other good ecommerce hosting.

10. Selling on Other Huge eCommerce Website

I sell on other ecommerce website like amazon, flipkart, google play store, shopclues by opening seller account.

My Suggestion through my experience 

1. Never Choose any bad hosting company. It will waste your all hard earned money and will give no value.
2. Never come from wordpress to Google blogger, your traffic will go to zero. No traffic in website means, no sale.
3. Never depend on Google blogger ecommerce template. Anytime, it will be dead.
