  • Has anyone started an online retail business?

    I'm seriously considering starting an online store with drop shipping so I can work from home.

    The learning curve is a little steep though. Any advice?

    Amazon has an affiliate program that looks like a good starting place with little risk. Of course, low risk means low rewards. You receive a 7% commission on items sold so a huge volume would be necessary.

    I'm part of Amazon's affiliate program. You're right, it's not lucrative enough to do much with unless you have a site with a lot of traffic.

    First tip: find a niche.

      There is a bunch of companies that have affiliate programs. I earn from ebay, amazon and from an "adult" site(sextoys,etc)Its not much. The sextoy site is 25%, which is really good for affiliate commision.

          Haven't used that one, take a look at http://www.zen-cart.com/ it's open source = free. Fairly easy setup too. And have a look at http://www.shareasale.com/ for affiliates. I use both.
