Once your list of documents is ready, you can select the category of products you want to sell. Ideally, you should think of selling products that can be easily sourced in your area or through contacts. Say, your uncle owns an apparel shop. Get in touch with him and discuss a plan where you can source products from him and sell them online. If you do not have contacts, you should leverage the area where you live. India is diverse and with that comes specialised products from each region. If you are based out of Rajasthan, get in touch with the manufacturers of Rajasthani handicrafts. Similarly, from Kashmir you can sell wool and from Assam you sell the beautiful Mekhla Chador.
As soon as you know what you want to sell online, you can create a catalogue of your products and start listing them. Many marketplaces like Amazon, allow you to list hundreds of products in bulk. You can click here to learn how to list your products in bulk
