However, the number of consumers who shop online will increase in the coming years. This is due to the convenience of online commerce and better prices in online shops than in stationary stores. However, according to the Sociomantic Labs report "E-commerce Barometer 2016", the market value in 2020 is expected to reach 63 billion PLN. What do such forecasts mean for entrepreneurs? It is definitely a good time to expand sales channels and open an online store. Thanks to this, companies will not only increase profits, but also respond to the needs of customers, which is important in the light of the strong competition and increasingly popular brand creation strategy.

Setting up an online store

There are many solutions on the market to open an online store. The choice of the right shop platform should depend on the individual conditions of e-business. Large companies with a complex product base are often recommended to use a dedicated solution. IT specialists, on the other hand, usually use free software. On the other hand, small and medium-sized enterprises rely on ready-made shop platforms, which provide a full sales tool in exchange for a low subscription payment. Setting up a ready-made online store minimises the barrier to entry into the e-commerce market due to the low costs incurred by the entrepreneur at the start. Moreover, in order to run a subscription e-shop you do not need any programming skills - the platforms are intuitive and easy to use. The hosting, security and development of the site is supervised by a team of technicians. A big advantage of opening a ready-made website is also the speed of configuration. The process of preparing the store for sale can take only two weeks. Thanks to this, the brand opens up to new customers in a short time and starts earning money. Opening an Internet shop for a subscription is enabled by M's Sky-Shop.pl shop platform.
