Online store: when developing an online store it has to be practical, fast, simple, operative and with an attractive design. The idea is to add customers and not lose them, so it is essential that the web pages are not slow, complicated to use and difficult to understand as it brings as a result that those customers who at first were interested in buying do not do it and even tell others about their bad experience and this results in bad publicity

For those who consume and buy on the Internet, price is fundamental, besides there is a great competition and if you can take the lead by improving your prices, so much the better. Regarding the return policy is necessary to show your customers security at the time of purchase as well as at the time of returning the product in case it has a defect or was not what the customer expected
For this, the return policy of your company must be clear and be visible on your website so that everyone knows their rights and obligations
Marketing campaign: this must be developed with all the necessary strategies to reach the target audience to which your e-commerce is destined, for this online advertising, blogs, social networks, videos, etc. must be used
