How to sell Digital Products
When you start to sell online having social media pages is not enough. Specially if you are not just looking to sell one time, it is better to create an online store. Usually, every time you choose an e-commerce platform to create an online store, you are told you will be charged a per sales fee or commission, which is really not fair! Someone who had zero input in the creation of the product or service being sold gets a portion of the sale price.
