    One of the best WP Tavern articles I have ever read. Thank you Sarah. I just forwarded this to my wife who works for a large children’s clothing company in NYC who has 1 customer – Walmart.

    I want to echo Bud’s comment about this being an excellent article. While I understand the Tavern started out (and has tenured itself) as WP news, I appreciate the—what feels like op-ed—approach to publishing here. Lately, the content has been much more thought provoking (for me, at least) and has given me a lot to think about as an entrepreneur in general, not just with WordPress specifically.

    The current shift of customer behaviour from offline to online is unprecedented. And for sure a huge opportunity for small to medium sized businesses who haven’t yet fully transformed their business model to online. While ad-hoc measures will help many businesses to survive and find new business models short-term, I think it is worthwhile to point out that business owners need to start thinking about an ecommerce strategy that is fundamental to a business’ success in the mid- and long-term as early as possible. Exciting times in any case!

    So here’s my dilemma as I ponder this article with a nervous stomach of possibilities: do I has a designer-developer of websites for others create a package to get existing and wanna-be retailers online, or do I dive in and create an online shop and sell product myself? Obviously the ‘package’ idea is a product, but e-commerce websites are not as easy and as trouble free as buying and re-selling a physical product (arguably).
