Sell products from home

There was a time when one was supposed to go out of the house to earn money and it was a far-fetched dream to be able to work from home and make money. But, then came the dotcom boom and people found ways to run their business other than the traditional setting. With online selling, one can turn his/her passion into a profession or chase the dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur, within the comfort of their home.

So, if you are still struggling to find what to sell online, here’re a few suggestions that might help you start your online business:

Books: Selling books online from home is extremely simple on Amazon. It’s just a matter of minutes because most books are exempt from tax and should not be impacted by GST. All you need to do is register, provide your PAN details and it’s done.

Unique products: Selling unique products is not only a trend but might be one of the profitable ways to do business online. Sourcing products from the local vendors would give you extremely unique products to sell online. For example, you can source exclusive Hyderabadi bangles from Hyderabad, Bandhini sarees from Gujarat, Chikan embroidered kurtis from Lucknow, etc. Since these products are specific to their own regions, online selling would give wider reach, thereby, more customers and more growth.

Quirky electronic products: Some countries are hubs for manufacturing funky, cool and quirky products at extremely competitive prices. You can these import products and sell them at great prices. Not only would your products be different from the competitors but also extremely pocket-friendly for your customers.

Products that are difficult to find offline: Some products are very difficult to find offline. It may be because of the region they are produced in or of the fact that shoppers are unaware.

Selling these online is a perfect idea.

High-demand products: Selling products that are bestsellers is one of the safest ways of starting an online business. All you have to do is some research.
