About the Event

This workshop is part of the Digital Development Business Support programme.

This workshop will give you practical tips and advice on how to begin selling online, or improve your sales if you are already using e-commerce. It will give you a clear understanding of how best to apply techniques within your own business environment.

NB – This is not a practical workshop and delegates are not required to bring a laptop computer.


The workshop covers the full range of options to engage with e-commerce, from simple systems like Amazon and eBay to templated shopping malls or your own standalone shop. It will also cover how to get paid in the most cost-effective way, and the security that needs to be in place for this to happen safely.

Finally, we’ll look at what you need to understand to comply with the legal aspects of running an online shop. The workshop is delivered in plain English, to focus on the benefits for your firm.
