Yes of course except for the amazon and ebay by simply posting it in your social media account like facebook, twitter, instagram people may got interested on it and buy.At first it takes a lot of patience for trust issues of the customers to you but time will come you will get there trust and have a successful business.

There are so many young people who are successful in e-commerce without having their own website. And definitely if given the chance to have their own site for FREE, they would grab it. My point is, these kids have learned to be practical enough that they use their own skills to promote what they sell--food, clothing, bags, cosmetics, etc.

You can do it both ways. But you don't need to compare whether you could be more successful if you have a website of not. It's about being resourceful... and strategic! :icon_rock:

Maybe if you have enough budget, if you have so much excess, then go for a website! It's a symbol of success. :ertery:

A business may not need a website when you know how to use social media like Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook.Participating in those comes at no charge. It can really be more impactful than a traditional website to engage people until your business becomes more established. You can also try to customize a blog to spread words about your business.

Actually, you don't need a website to set up an e-commerce business, however, having a website is very helpful. You can sell items on eBay, Amazon. zazzle or etsy. Setting accoiunt is free. ebay is highly recommended for ecommerce business. Set a seller account and open ebay store. list your product, optimize for internal and external search. You can even do business on ebay without manufacturing or pricuring product. Ebay allows you to do drop shipping.

Yes you can still sell online using social media account like facebook,Instagram and tweeter.For example me I sign up for facebook page and there I can post any product I want to sell.I am making a decent money with it.Though having a website really help a lot in terms of marketing your product you may start first build your marketing social media and later own build your website if you have finances.

Since E-commerce is one of a great way to make money nowadays, you need to invest your time and money in order to be successful here.And the first thing to consider is having your own website, right?But is it possible to start E-business without any website?How?
Hi there Argel,

To answer your question, in my own opinion and based on what I see as a trend nowadays, creating a business website of your own would definitely build a brand of your Business -- It can help you in so many ways -- like promoting and it can generate traffic plus it shows credibility on what you offer / sell or advertise. But, YES, its possible to have an E-business without a website since there are different platforms that you can advertise / promote your products. Of course, FACEBOOK would definitely be a first choice and it can offer so much, especially with new E-business startups. You can join groups, create a discussion, go Live, promote it to your friends and other acquaintances and so much more that FACEBOOK has to offer. Aside from that one, there is Instagram, Twitter and so much more. You just need to do proper advertising and strategically promote your E-business with those Medium.

I totally agree with you. It makes sense. Yet you save money because you did not invest creating your own website but you will also pay fees to ebay or amazon. So you bette invest to create your own domain name or website.

Definitely. You can use social media such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. However, to increase the chance of your business becoming successful, having your own website is highly advisable. It will allow you to reach more customers than without having one. Invest to learn and develop your own site. Trust me, it is worth all the effort.

Absolutely! I am seeing a lot of successful online micro businesses on social media. It's very accessible to millions of users who wants to avail your products and services. It's easy to share as well and a good platform to start with. One good thing also is that it's free! If you become successful and profitable that's when it's time for you to have your own web page, but it will cost you a money, time and effort.

In my opinion, if you want to actual make a good amount of money from online business you absolutely NEED a domain and website. The reason I say that is because once you start making sales you're going to want to create a funnel to create an email list to continuially sell to the same target audience. Which is quite hard to when using free websites, most have limitations on creating mail lists creatively with ease. Overall, it's much better to own your own website to have complete creative control in your online business space.

No, it doesn't work that way. It's like saying you must have a website to be a successful blogger. Have you noticed how many successful bloggers are using Google's Blogspot? More than you can imagine.

So, back to making money doing business online. What you want to do is make money, not own a website. How to keep an email list? That's very easy. Make it an integral part of the ordering process.

I am not saying that it's bad to have your own website to do business online. It's like starting a business in the real world. You don't have to rent a shop to get started. You can begin by selling at the night market by the roadside. Or from the boot of your car. The main thing is to get started. Don't get hung up on having to own a website or a domain name.

Online business needs a website or domain to refer you from any social media. You can advertise through the social media, but if you do a online business then you should have a website where you have to give some details about your business, business address and some product details. Today getting a domain and building a website is soo simple and cheap.

Hi there! Yes, you can definitely can. You can post your products in eBay, AliExpress, Alibaba.com etc. Maybe if your business becomes much bigger, you can already establish your own online store. Definitely, this will cost you money but if you want the traffic to be direct to your own store, this is the best way. Also in that way to are able to showcase other products within your own store that you offer.

If you begin your business using other company's domain (like EBay) grab the opportunity and get your clients details so you can use it for Online Marketing later. ;)

Yeah, you can start your E-business without any website. BUT, creating your own website saves you a lot, money, time and effort. Providing your own website means, you are on your own, you are not depending on someone (owner of the website you are on).

Yes, you can still sell your items without making your own website or having your own domain name. There are a lot of online stores that offer sellers to sell their items with them like the Amazon, eBay or even facebook. But depending on the contents of what you're planning to sell then it is better if you just build your own website. There are few advantages of having your own website rather than just selling your items using other pages as your vessel. To name few of this advantages that will eventually benefit you is 1.) Cost - having your own website is less expensive than using other website to promote what you're selling. You will pay certain fees and ads in order for them to continually post your items. 2.) advertisement - rather you doing the ads why not build your own website and let others used it as a way to promote their website or their items? It's like two birds with one stone. 3.) Opportunity - it's time for you to shine! Because having your own website means you're proving your own credibility as an owner and manager. You can even get closer with your clients. I hoping you would consider the idea of building your own website rather than just using other vessels to promote your items.

Well, fortunately for web newbies, there are more options for getting started with e-commerce than ever before. Now you can actually market and sell products without ever creating your own website. You can actually create a BLOG.

You can create your own website in less than five minutes (and for free!) by starting a blog.

Yes, you can set up an online business without a website or domain name. You can start an online business through social networking sites like Facebook or Instagram, post your products and sell it. I can give you some tips in starting an online business:

1. Plan
You should plan your business well. In planning, you must consider the following:
a. Business name - it should be unique and easy to remember
b. Business type - this includes what kinds of products are you going to sell
c. Customers - who are your targeted customers?
d. Price - The price of the product. How much do you expect to gain?
e. Promotion - this includes how will you promote your product to a bigger audience, attractive packaging of product

2. Act
- When you have opened a social networking account or page for your product, you should start acting on it. Promote it to sell it. Give it your all.

3. Maintain
- When people start buying your products, you will gain regular customers or new customers. You must maintain the quality of your product and your service.

4. Expand
-Expand online. At this point, if your business booms and succeeds, you can finally think of establishing a website or domain and expand the reach of your business globally.

You could always find place to distribute and sell your product be it online or in real life. But these places usually charge you and they take time to finalize payments whereas through your website you could cut the middleman short, earn reputation, and it's much easier to market your product.

You're asking if you could sell clothes door to door, when you can open your own store.

You can begin a online business without a website.

You can begin a business online with out a website. You can always begin by using your existing social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and more. There are something called a starter website that you can get for a small rate or sometimes comes through the company where you purchase your product. The Starter website is normally a one page website with some highlighted products and the details to give customers insight into the type of products you carry. There are also free website you can use if you do not have the funds. I do feel that if you can find a quality website and place to purchase a Domain name it is better for your company. This brings more traffic which creates more inquiries and possible sales. Having a Domain name and website of your own is only a benefit, just checking around find the best deal.
