Questions

Amazon, E-bay, Shopee or my own website? We are selling a turmeric latte spice mix, which people can mix with their milk and drink in the morning as a healthy beverage. This spice mix contains essential spices that help to fight infections and lifestyle diseases. The spices are manufactured and packed in Singapore, and we want to market and sell the turmeric latte spice mix to places where the benefits of spices are not very well known and not commonly used. We are confused in which markets and through what online channels should we sell the spice mix. Instead of using the E-Commerce Marketplaces, we can even build a funnel via clickfunnels, or sell on a shopify website. How should we start, and how should we scale later.

Hi, there are few things to consider before choosing a platform to sell your product. First I would consider the primary location where the product is manufactured before I put it on a global market. All eCommerce platforms are good what really matters is what the intended customers know about the product. Most products in your niche sold eCommerce platforms like Amazon and eBay are products which have grounding already.

I would recommend you start your own website, create social media accounts, do marketing for the product before putting it on Amazon or eBay. The simple reason is these platforms work on reviews, when a product is new they are not the best platforms.

I would also recommend creating funnels because through that other people will market the product on your behalf. Depending on your target location you will get better results than eCommerce platforms. When the products start to sell well then list it on Amazon or eBay.

Good luck!
