You have many choices such as starting solo with Sole Proprietorship firm or One Person Company. You may also opt for registering a Private Limited Company, if you have plans to infuse equity or bring in Foreign Direct Investment at a later stage. Usually, Private Limited Company is the best form of organization for an e-store. It has many advantages such as limited liabilities, quick approvals, easy compliances, legal protection, scalability etc.

Advantages Of E-commerce Business:



There are various reasons why one should start E-commerce Business. Here are some of them:


Overcome Geographical Limitations


If you have a physical store, you are limited by the geographical area that you can service. With an e-commerce website, the whole world is your playground. 


Gain New Customers with Search Engine Visibility


Physical retail is driven by branding and relationships. In addition to these two drivers, online retail is also driven by traffic from search engines. It is not unusual for customers to follow a link in search engine results and land on an e-commerce website that they have never heard of. This additional source of traffic can be the tipping point for some e-commerce businesses.


Lower Costs


One of the most tangible positives of e-commerce is the lowered cost. A part of these lowered costs could be passed on to customers in the form of discounted prices.


Eliminate Travel Time and Cost


It is not unusual for customers to travel long distances to reach their preferred physical store. E-commerce allows them to visit the same store virtually, with just a few mouse clicks.


Remain Open All the Time


Store timings are now 24/7/365. E-commerce websites can run all the time. From the merchant's point of view, this increases the number of orders they receive. From the customer's point of view, an "always open" store is more convenient.
