Many people around the globe try their hand at selling online. While some have had a small measure of success, others have built large enterprising businesses.

Two of the most common methods are owning your own eCommerce website or using the power of eBay to help you become successful.

There are several good and bad things about each that nearly cancel themselves out leaving the choice entirely up to user preference.

What are some comparisons that you have to face with using each of these methods?

Hi Ken,

First, thanks to Eric for sharing this with the BizSugar community. I'm assuming in your scenario we're using some kind of free WordPress plugin or other free tool to create our ecommerce store because either having an ecommerce store designed or using a store building tool like Volusion or Shopify would involve additional costs. Also, I think you cannot underestimate the time (and possible money) involved in properly optimizing and promoting your independent ecommerce store. I'm wondering what your general recommendations would be for marketing an independent ecommerce site. It would be great if you could respond in the comment section of the BizSugar community so that all our members could benefit from the information.
