Online shopping is new business trend in Pakistan. After reading this entire post you will be able to sell products online from your home. Selling online require less efforts and less investment rather than traditional business or retail shop. There are three most popular ways to sell products online from home.
1. Selling Your Products on Facebook from Home.
You can open Facebook shop by using your Facebook account. Facebook has millions of user’s reach in Pakistan. Facebook has become life line of many popular brands in Pakistan. I know no one can cover all Facebook users and this huge market. But creating a Facebook page with 20,000 likes will have huge impact on your business in the start. You can also focus on buy & sell groups on Facebook. You can also create your own group with full control over it.
2. Selling on Classified websites.
You can sell your products online from home in Pakistan by adding your products on popular classified websites. Here is the list of classified websites. You can create account right there to sell online.
3. Create an Online store
You can create an online store to sell products online from home in Pakistan. You can do this by purchasing a domain name from Creative ON and starting your online shop. Here is the procedure to start an online shop in Pakistan
- Register A domain & hosting
- Install WordPress
- Install Woo Commerce Theme
- Upload Product Pictures
- Get your online store up and running.
As you know Marketing is essential for every business. Your new store will require a lot of marketing and branding efforts. I own two online store, I know in the start it was tough time but slowly I grow both of them with monthly profit of 80,000 PKR. I have started from Facebook marketing and now I am using adonion.com for my store’s marketing. You can adjust your Facebook marketing budget as your store grows. At least 3-5 thousand rupees minimum marketing budget is required to grow your store’s fan page. The initial investment for this setup is 10,000 rupees. Divide is as 30%, 40%, 30% rule. If 10,000 is the budget then 3 thousands for hosting and domain, 4 thousands rupees will be for Facebook marketing and remaining 3 thousands will be other expenses. If you have bigger budget then you adjust the amount by 40% as you marketing budget. Don’t ignore marketing expenses in any business. It is essential for every business.

Where Success lies in online business
The No one #1 formula of success in online business is to understand the market need. This same rule applies to offline market. The markets move on the supply and demand rules. Understand the need of online buyers. The category in which you are selling will defiantly have some quality selling products. Brainstorm these product, focus on the use of these products. What else can be sold on Daraz.pk if it is selling? Ask from yourself. Grab some new products and some old products. Take a click make combo offer of these online products.
My Daraz strategy to Sell Most of the Products:
Take any bestselling product, source the best price, make combo offer to sell new product with it. Leave the profit of old product, take the profit of new product. You will be astonished with results. Don’t always think about profits and being rich. Always grow slowly. Grow your ratings, add product slowly. Give some discounts and then see how your sale goes skyrocket.
Boost Your Sales
You can boost your sale by adding product that are being sold by other Daraz sellers. Upload them on your shop give discounts. Make price at least 20 Rupees Low and see. Use at least two or three products for ratings and continuous ordering.
Daraz.pk will not make you key seller in one day. It will take time slowly and rapidity. Grow your ratings, get good reviews and get best sales. Daraz.pk policy towards selling products is only this that you sell quality products. Daraz.PK hate copies, no more copies, replicas etc. Buy original and genuine products.
I Wish you a happy successful journey of Online Selling.
