to start an online book store first of all you need an online store where you can display the products, in your case books. That store can be created by the web developers who would charge you somewhere between 10000 pkr to 20000 pkr depending upon which platform you choose.


secondly you need a vendor who ships the books whenever some order is placed at your website. I recommend to contact some vendors available in different parts of country, and sign a deal with them so that they ship your products and get money from you on weekly basis.

Do not purchase the books at your own. It is not wise decision to have such wide range of inventory because it needs huge investment.

The main hurdles in this business are recieving payments and getting a good vendor. Also you will need some capital to spend on marketing like facebook ads and brand awarness.

Thats all.
