Hello, community:

Below I have linked an interesting article from 2015 regarding logistics tips for e-commerce startups. My question is, are there variations between logistics practices from e-commerce sites versus brick-and-mortar stores? Or is it a similar process. How do they differ, how are they the same? Please, let me know!

    Interesting article, logistics is very broad and has a wide variation. Of course tips are important so that when you diverge yourself to the logistics industry it will help you cope up with the trends and good processes in order for your e-commerce to be successful. For the question, yes there are many variations with regards to logistics practices.

    Thank you for your thoughts, @emeliaingram. I'm sure each business must do some trial and error testing before settling on one logistics strategy.

    The Internet is going to be the marketplace for your future purchases, or at least a large portion of it. Online retail in India is forecast to grow hundred-fold.
    Though online retail is growing, Indian entrepreneurs in the space don't have it easy. Many e-commerce companies are facing challenges in attracting investors to expand their infrastructure to serve a bigger customer base and more cities.

    Such intermediaries can help you start selling products (or services) while focusing on your core product.

    1. STORE PLATFORMS
    2. ONLINE MARKETS
    3. DIGITAL STORES
    4. LOGISTICS
    Another important service that an online entrepreneur needs is a payment gateway.
