How do I register a business or business that I open an online store or sell online?


The so-called online store refers to the sale of goods through the virtual channel of the Internet, and the online marketing, direct sales or store shelf sales methods are the means of marketing channels. If the retail business has been operated as a storefront and the products are sold through online marketing, applying for business registration is no different from a general store, and its business items depend on which products are sold. If you use non-traditional retail methods to operate retail products using electronic media such as mail and radio, television, and the Internet, you should register as "F399040 Storeless Retail."
