On-line business sounds simple.
It is simple.
Yet, you will sell very little, if anything at all.
1. People are set in their ways. They prefer to buy in stores. There are some exceptions (Amazon f.e) but these are exceptions.
2. People won't know about your online shop. How can they buy from you if they don't know you exist ?
3. The merchandise you think is not available, may actually be available, in various ways.
4. Even if people are interested in your merchandise, it may take much longer than
you would like before a critical mass of clients actually starts buying your stuff. Think several years before you get to that point.
