daraz pk

2- Do these guys contact whole sellers and pay small amount to them and then they assure no. of sales they will make for sure?

Usually they have a physical store setup already. The online component is added later on or launched at the same time.

2- Do these guys contact whole sellers and pay small amount to them and then they assure no. of sales they will make for sure?

I am also working at online store but my boss has Ist physical store then he move to the online business but we have still a display store. and 2nd thing is your vendor you may find trustworthy for your products and make a contract with them to provide on time at reasonable rate.

There are two sceneries.

1. You have a physical store or own product and you want to sell online as well.

2. You just want to resell products from other vendors.

In first case you need a website and thats it. You will have to think about payment options and shipping etc.

In second case it is same but when order arrives you need to get product from the vendor and ship to your customer or have a agreement that they ship product. There are many additional issues like inventory and price control, shipping times and faulty products.

There is no need to assure minimum sales as they do not have to do anything.

Well if you are getting products from someone else you are do not control when price is increased or decreased. You do not know when it might go out of stock of get discontinued. When a product is faulty it is your suppliers fault but it will damage your repute.

I am not sure what you are trying to sell and where to find whole sellers for that. other member might be able to help.

All the best.

just a heads up more and more crap online store websites launching in pakistan, you can try , but really third world countries are not where a business like this become successful unless you have big budget to spend on marketing and products. People in pakistan are really skeptical when it comes to purchasing physical products from online stores, i managed to create few online stores for my clients as well and i also have all the statistics that how many products they sell every month so the view is based on my personal experience.
