The following is a compilation of the most frequently asked questions on the Online Store Business Course.
Do we provide the products?
No. We are not the distributor for these products. We provide an extensive list of the best distributors, drop-shippers and wholesalers in the U.S. Our partner distributors are the companies which provide the products, pricing, inventory and drop-ship services for our resellers. The Online Store Business Course will show you how to get signed up with distributors as quickly as possible.
Is this an affiliate program or an actual business start-up?
This is not an affiliate program. This is an actual business start-up. You will be starting your own online store business from your home or office. You will be registering your business name and obtaining your sales tax ID with your state. This website will show you how.
How do I get my own the website
 The Online Store Business Course shows you how to start and open your own online store as quickly and as easily as possible with many options to choose from. For example, you can either:

A. Build and open your online store with a simple web design program such as Microsoft Expression Web, Adobe Dreamweaver, Go Live etc. (We provide a list of the best and most easiest web development programs to learn and use). And you’ll also learn how to build your own website as well.

B. Build and open your online store using a professional website template from to give your store a professional look and feel. And all you’ll have to do is edit the website template with Expression Web or Dreamweaver. Then insert images and product text onto the page. Link the Buy button to your shopping cart and you’re done.

C. Open your online store with any ecommerce package provided by your web host provider. All web host providers offer complete ecommerce solutions. Or you can purchase a complete ecommerce solution for just $15 per month from Volusion, Shopify and others as well. Then all you’ll have to do is insert product images and insert product text from within the admin section of the program.

D. Hire a professional website developer. If you don’t have the time to build your online store then you can hire a professional web developer to build the store for you. We provide a list of the top website developer’s at the most affordable prices. You’ll also learn how to choose the best website developer for your business as well. (All of this information is included in a detailed manner within the Online Store Business Course.)
How much time will I have to put into my business?
You can start off part-time working part-time hours but eventually it will turn into a full time job, just as with any 9-5 retail business. However, most of your time will go into the initial start-up phase of your business; i.e. setting up your business, building your online store, adding products to your store, marketing your store, etc. Then from there it's just a matter of taking and placing orders and marketing and maintaining your website.
Can I still benefit from this if I already have a business?
Yes. You can still use and benefit from this tips on this website even if you already have your own business. The Online Store Business Course provides valuable information that most Internet retailers are not aware of such as more distributors, access to more products, ecommerce resources, advanced internet marketing strategies and more.
What will my start-up costs be?
You can start your online store business with hardly any start-up cost at all.
You can register your business name for as little as $10 to $50 or more.
You can obtain your sales tax license for as little as $8 or free.
You can register your www.domain-name for only $12 per year.
You can obtain web hosting for $4 per month with shopping cart included.
You can obtain a complete ecommerce solution for only $15 per month.
You can obtain your own payment processing system for free.
You can promote and advertise your website for free.
NOTE: Registration fees vary from state to state.
Check with your local business registration office.
How long will it take to get my business up and running?
That depends on how much time and effort you put into starting your business. You can register your business and obtain your sales tax license within 2 weeks or less. And during that time you can be working on your Internet storefront as well. Building a “super-store” (selling all product categories) can be done in less than a month, while building an online store focused on a niche market can be completed within 2 weeks or less. And this is just one of the reasons why we encourage resellers to focus on a niche product market.
How will I promote and advertise my website?
In the Online Store Business Course, you’ll learn how to use the most effective, internet marketing strategies to bring targeted traffic to your online store each and every day. You’ll learn how to promote, market and advertise your store to help get you off to a fast and profitable start with our step-by-step guides on search engine marketing, pay-per-click marketing, text link advertising, banner advertising, email marketing, newsletter marketing, press release marketing and more.
Do I have to pay for the product up front?
No. After the customer orders and pays you for the product, then you can order the product from the distributor. The distributor will then ship the product directly to your customer with your business name on the box. Products can be paid for via credit card, PayPal debit card, EFT: Electronic Funds Transfer, direct debit or C.O.D. Distributors may offer multiple payment options and credit terms as well. Inside the Online Store Business Course you'll learn how to pay for products using your customers’ money each and every time.
Who will provide support for my customers?
When selling technology products such as computer hardware and software, technical support is provided by the manufacturer and not the reseller. All technical support and warranty issues for computer products are to be handled directly by the manufacturer of the product.
International: Can I do this outside the U.S.?
This business opportunity is for U.S. residents only since all of the distributors are U.S. based distributors. However, there may be some distributors who may be willing to work with resellers in Canada, U.K. and other overseas countries as well. Furthermore, some computer and electronics distributors such as Ingram Micro and Tech Data have large international operations located across the globe. You can contact the distributors directly and ask if they are able to work with you in your country. In regards to starting and registering your business, this business course provides instructions on starting a business within the U.S. only. You will have to do your own research on how to start a business in your country. However, just about every other aspect on this website will work for most countries as it does within the U.S.
