Answer by Jake
you can setup a ‘store’ on Amazon, it’s easier than starting an online store from scratch and may expose you to more buyers, their percentage and competitive discounting can leave some pretty small margins, some use eBay and Amazon stores to collect clients for their own store with lower overhead down the line.
If you get into doing online sales, maintaining an email list of buyers and keeping in contact with them with something like weekly pet tips can make them more responsive to the occasional promotional email.
