Hi all,

I’ve been selling a few of my crafts and artworks online through eBay for the last 8 months. These platforms help me sell my products easily and grow fast without any problems. Now the requirement of the product is increasing. So, I’m planning to start an e-commerce website to sell the products.

Few of my friends are interested in joining so that we can start it as a small business. But a bit confused whether to register the business or not. Recently I read a blog (https://www.ontariobusinesscentral.ca/blog/should-you-register-your-online-hobby-shop/) which says about the benefits of registering the business. Has anyone tried registering recently? Please share your experience.

Thanks in advance.

With years of experience behind me, my advice would be that you should definitely make your business YOURS with legal documentation in place before you bring in partners or other outside influences . Bottom Line- protect yourself, your business, and your products. Consider product liabilities. Maintain excellent records.

I guarantee you that it is worth investing in your own business. To feel what entrepreneurial life means because that brings development. I also started by selling handmade works on eBay. Everything was going perfectly, but I still felt the need to do more, to have a team to work with. Unfortunately, during the pandemic, I lost a lot, but at least I learned a lot. Orders were few; we had to think of a solution but also to live from something. Thanks to Illinois Factoring Companies - Factor For You, my business survived, and I had something to pay my team's salaries. Now things are much better.
