What are multi-channel sales?
Multi-channel sales are selling your products through multiple channels to attract a larger audience. Multi-channels can include small personal websites (such as Shopify, Woocommerce, etc.), online platforms (such as Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, etc.), mobile markets (such as Etsy, Wish, etc.), as well as social media channels (Facebook stores, Instagram stores, etc.) The more sales channels you build, the better the chances of getting more potential revenue in the future.
What are the advantages of multi-channel marketing?
Expand coverage Many customers interact through a limited number of channels, so by expanding your marketing campaign to cover more channels, you can find customers with untapped buying potential.
Increase customer base An increase in the number of channels converts into more potential customer reach. This will allow consumers to interact with the brand and open up new communication channels between the brand and the consumer. Companies do not need to wait for customers to find their brand but discover which channels these consumers prefer to use and reach out to them proactively.
Reduce/diversify risks As the e-commerce landscape changes, it is difficult to predict customer behavior and trends. Selling on multiple channels distributes customers. If one channel's sales begin to decline, other channels can compensate for the loss.
Enhance product awareness and sales Displaying your products on multiple channels can significantly improve product visibility, and combining applicable marketing methods from each channel can double sales.

WooCommerce and Shopify: Pros and Cons
- Scalability and customization: As an open-source platform, WooCommerce provides unlimited scalability and customization potential. If you know how to code, you can design your website independently.
- Cost: WooCommerce can create an online store completely free of charge. Note: the hosting and security fees must be paid separately. Shortcoming
- Ease of use: WooCommerce is an open-source platform. If you have more ideas but lack coding knowledge, you need to hire professionals to complete this work.
- Easy to use: Shopify has a variety of customizable templates that are easy to set up. It is great for beginners who are not yet ready to design and write an entire website independently. Shopify provides enough tools to build an excellent online store. Shortcoming
- Cost: Unlike WooCommerce, Shopify charges a subscription fee. In addition to monthly fees, the platform also charges transaction fees. This means that you must give a certain percentage of each transaction to Shopify.
The main difference between these two platforms is the audience. WooCommerce is suitable for experienced coders who know how to build commercial websites. Although this may be cumbersome for beginners, the platform is completely free to download and use. So if you know how to code (or hire someone who knows how to code), you can save a lot of money.
Shopify is more suitable for beginners and individuals who know nothing about technology. You can find many different customizable website templates, so you can build your online store using a simple drag and drop interface. Although Shopify is obviously easier to use, you have to pay full price for the pleasure. Over the years, its expensive applications and transaction fees can add up to a huge sum of money.
Both platforms provide your customers with multiple ways to pay for your products. These include Apple Pay, PayPal, debit and credit cards, Square, etc. These two platforms also have their own payment methods. Note: you need to be aware that every third-party payment method will charge transaction fees, so the profit won't be 100% yours.
