The e-commerce business in a covid-19 world

There is no better time than now for starting an online business. Statistics show a nearly 40% jump for e-commerce since the beginning of March. No matter if you have a physical store and you are now thinking of starting your online presence or if you are already in the online world, but you feel that you are in a rut, there is always a way to make things better for you as well as for your customer base. 

We wanted to share with you a real-life story with one of our customers who decided to use one of our products to help his business and after that, we will share our thoughts and recommendations on the apps/modules that you as a store owner can benefit from for boosting your sales during these difficult times. Keep reading to find out how. 

In one of the recent cases we had, there was this customer that really wanted to expand his business into his social media channels and our FacebookStore module was a way for him to do that. By using our extension he was able to reach a big chunk of his customers that are currently spending way more time on social media. He shared his success story with us, and we decided that it would be very inspiring to reshare this with you. 

The current situation of social isolation creates some good business opportunities and niches for specific products such as: work from home supplies, fitness products that you can use at home, entertainment products like board games for the whole family, self-improving books as people are trying to reconnect with themselves and improve their personality and spirituality even more, etc. All of these became trending as of lately. 

If you are already selling some of these products or you are planning on taking a step forward now and create your own dropshipping business, here is a list of extensions (for OpenCart) and apps (for Shopify) that we would recommend using:
