Digitalisation of Existing Entrepreneurs
Converting an existing business to an eCommerce business involves developing a website that would serve the following purposes.

- Any promotions or discounts on selected items
- A cart page to which customers can place selected items till the payment process is over
- A checkout page with secured payment gateway to complete the eCommerce activity. (If the payment gateway is included the website should have SSL certification and the URL should start with “https://”.)
One can sell products (physical or digital) or services online through the eCommerce website.
Once the website is launched you may promote your eCommerce business through various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in, Instagram, eMail etc.
