The website must be able to manage the inventory, various discounts and offers to attract customers, uploads of products and its images, promotions, handle customer relationships as well as online orders. At the same time, the website must be an easy to use one for the customers.

Also, a fact to be remembered is that, an E- Commerce venture has a wider territorial appeal. Customers from any part of the world may buy products through E- Commerce ventures. Hence, what is very importantly needed is a capable shopping cart, which can successfully handle taxes, shipping charges and transactions of payments for such international customers.

Many E- Commerce solutions come in one single package that helps management as well as maintenance easy and efficient. However, the business concern must make a list of their requirements and expectations before choosing an E- Commerce solution. The solution must have prospects of future growth.

One of the most important aspects is to think about certain questions on how to sell the products through the E- Commerce strategy. One should first decide about what products to sell and how the products should be presented. Presentation of a product plays an important role in attracting customers. The next question to think of is which group should be the target customer group. These customers have to be wooed and drawn to the site. Customer service is another aspect to be taken care of. Fulfillment of orders, following them up, as well as helping to track order in transit, are other important details to be taken care of.

Once such bits and pieces of details are taken care of, selling products through E- Commerce strategy shall prove successful and profitable.
