Oh!!! It all started with the Barter System of Selling .....

How to sell my products online? While I was brooding over this topic,  my thinking raced back to the early days of my life.

On those days, shopping means going to a shop asking the salesperson to show a particular product. You pay the price by cash and take the product. That was a simple purchase transaction done.

There is another form of selling which has been happening on those times. The saree selling merchant will come to my house in a hand-pulled rickshaw. He will beautifully spread the sarees on the native fibre mat of our living room. All womenfolk will assemble and have a look at the sarees. They will select and the amount will be paid by cash and sarees handed over.

The concept of Departmental Stores had not crept in our life. For the European and upper strata of the society, there was only one store with a massive building i.e. Spencers at Mount Road, Madras.  There, the goods were categorically displayed on the racks and on the display stands, and you can see them and select. You pay by cash, and the goods will be delivered at your house.

But those days have gone by. The era of online shopping has become the trend of the present days.  These stores provide you with the leisurely 
selection of the goods sitting at home.  The payment mode is Credit or Debit cards or Net Banking. If the need arises the amount can be paid in instalments, which will be taken care off, by the card people.

As a seller, I started selling my goods through e-commerce selling stores. But I am little flabbergasted by the cumbersome procedures and Data input which had taken my valuable time.  I have to spend the same hours for each site for listing out my Data. At the same time, I have to maintain an inventory list separately for each e-commerce site.  While going over these cumbersome and time-consuming procedures I came across the 

This reliable software by has relieved me of all the cumbersome procedures of listing out and maintaining the inventory.
Now, what a way to go and do all the selling!!!
Of course, it all started with the Barter System of Selling.
