Exporting companies interested to export online can either sell directly through their own website or through an online marketplace.


There are several technology companies that now provide inclusive subscription packages that can help develop an online store website. Companies such as Magento, Shopify or BigCommerce can help businesses build their own transactional website. The template usually includes the website design, backend system, e-payment gateway management and freight management functions. However, companies are required to sign up for a monthly subscription with a free trial option. Two local companies in Lebanon, ecomz and shop builder, are providing similar services to exporters based in Lebanon or the region.


An online marketplace platform, like Amazon & eBay, doesn’t hold any inventory, instead inviting distributors and brand owners to open shops on their platform.


Online marketplaces will usually charge a number of fees: a shop opening fee, a product listing fee, a deposit amount, and a continuous commission fee according to total sales volume.
