Be Connected – Buying and Selling Online – Sydney Course

Buying and selling online can be a convenient, safe and contactless way to get what you want… and to get rid of what you don’t want too!

In these days of potential lock-downs and covid outbreaks, conventional shopping at bricks and mortar shops have a huge competitor – online shopping. In this course, you will learn about the advantages and disadvantages to online shopping and where to shop online.

Prior to this technology age, if you wanted to sell somethings there was only two choices:
1. Advertise in a local paper
2. Run a Garage Sale

This meant you could only sell to someone who lived locally.

Noawadays, if you want to sell something, your market reach could be anyone in Australia or even anyone in the world, if you choose the right website. This is especially useful if you have what you think might be highly valuable to a specific buyer, maybe a collector.

The question is – where to go to buy or sell and how does the financial transaction work when there it is not a cash transaction?

In this course, you will find out about how to sell something online and choosing the right websites.
