Before choosing a trading platform for business, it is worth deciding on your segment. Demographics, age, gender are the details to consider.
Admit it, you have certainly used one of these leading trading platforms at least once: OLX, ebay.com, amazon.com.
Social media is a completely separate topic.
You can open an online store on Facebook by automatically uploading the catalog from your store to the Facebook Shop section.
Customers on Facebook will be able to view the assortment from computers, mobile devices and share links to products with friends.
You can manage goods and orders on the social network in the control panel of your Ecwid store or through the Ecwid mobile app for iOS and Android.
With a store connected to Facebook, you can promote your product with dynamic ads and remarketing also tag products on Instagram.
Instagram is one of the simplest and most effective social networks for sales. According to Sprout Social:
1. 48% of users will buy your product if you quickly answer questions;
2. 46% will purchase the product / service at promotions;
