Design Sponge blogger, Grace Bonney, continues her guest blogging series at Slate regarding small business. The latest installment is about running an online shop. Lots of good info and links here. Frankly it all seems very overwhelming so major props to those of you who are already successfully running an online shop. If you haven't yet set up shop, make sure you read this article.
One of her points that interested me regarded the service charges for Pay Pal and other online merchants. These charges seem minor enough but they start to add up quickly. If you will be doing the bulk of your business online make sure to factor these charges into the pricing of your items. In the future, I'd like to do more posts on the ins and outs of Pay Pal. Anyone out there who considers themselves a Pay Pal expert who would be willing to share their expertise and experience?
