The days when digital product creation and online sales weren’t profitable are long gone. We now live in an era where on-demand rules the digital space. From on-demand ride-hailing (Uber and Bolt) to video-on-demand, to e-commerce itself. In Nigeria, for instance, making money selling digital products like ebooks, courses, training, e.t.c has become mainstream, so is creating an e-commerce store and selling. This is made possible by platforms like Selar – a startup founded by Douglas Kendyson in 2016 – helping creators sell their products or services online.
You can set up an e-commerce store on Selar and start selling your digital products and services for free, in less than 5 minutes. Signing up on the platform is pretty easy. All you need to do is visit the Selar website and signup. You will also be prompted to set up and verify your bank details. You can then begin to share the link to your store or product and start receiving payment from your customers instantly.
