We started DukaMart as a result of running an online business which is so expensive to run with many fixed and variable fees not to mention hidden fees. We know because we tried different online platforms and were upset with their rates.
We spent our savings to develop the first few products and started running an online store on Amazon in 2014. Sales were doing okay. When preparing our tax return for the first year, we were shocked that our profit was less than 20%. We have worked an average of 60 hours/week on our online business and didn’t even give ourselves a salary.
For the second year, we were resourceful and became active in different social media platforms. We believed our social media exposure would help to bring our products to more potential customers. We also created a few listings on eBay. It was tax time again. In spite of the additional efforts put in to our business, we were not gaining more profits. In fact, our return on investment has dropped. It was a wakeup call for us.
We tried to figure out what had happened. Amazon was our main selling portal. In addition to a monthly subscription fee, we were also using their Fulfillment by Amazon program. Amazon fees accounted for 40-45% of the product sales. With increasing competition, it’s getting more costly to sell on Amazon. After compiling all of our overhead costs, operation and advertising expenses, our online business was costing us too much to sell on Amazon.
DukaMart is our dream to help people create an online business without paying a dime for referral fees, transaction fees, insertion fees and other hidden fees. Store owners will have a customized profile with flexibility to create Seller’s Picks and allow shoppers to follow them on different social networks. All these built-in features are big pluses to drive more traffic and enhance customer engagement.
We are hopeful that DukaMart will evolve into a community marketplace where sellers help sellers with a healthy competition atmosphere. We’re also offering a safe platform where buyers will find quality products and services.
