The main reasons for the failures by scaling:
Lack of customer’s confidence in an unknown seller who offers goods
of unconfirmed quality;
Impossibility of providing the service at the level of an international company;
Lack of multilingual twenty-four-hour customer support;
Lack of skillful ‘package’ of goods and multilingual localization;
Lack of international marketing knowledge.
We realized that small-scale producers all over the world need a place

Building a system of e-commerce business is quite a sophisticated problem. The
company has to spend a lot of resources on creating of a team and channels of
distribution. In addition, one should know how to promote a product in light of
trends and specificity of a particular market.

Although the e-commerce field is growing rapidly, getting started with selling your
goods and services online is a daunting task.
The business owner has to use his/her resources ineffectively: to spend time on the
online shop management and to conduct advertising campaigns without assistance.
What’s worse, of small-scale producers getting into a global market requires consid-
erable investments at the early stage and further monthly expenses for the mainte-
nance of the online shop operations. Besides, the manufacture faces bureaucratic
difficulties and transaction fees when conducting international payments. Few small-
scale productions can meet that kind of financial demand and be ready to face the
risks related to international sales and entering the new markets.
Typical small-scale producers usually turn out about 50 product items and work in
the local or regional market. The staff of such a company includes from two to ten
people. Each of them combines se...
Lack of localization.
Small-scale producers are not able to present the translation of product descrip-
tions and features taking into consideration the specificity of various countries
which renders the launch to the international market impossible;
High fees at the existing platforms and various charges of payment systems.
The existing platforms withhold a considerable part of the cost, let alone payment
system and conversion charges, transaction fees and taxes;
Lack of customer’s confidence in an unknown seller.
The customer prefers verified sellers who offer goods of confirmed quality, while
the unknown sellers with no reputation have to compete with them;
Lack of proper “online sales pitch” for items.
Each purchase, especially the one made online, is based on many parameters. The
lack of the product description, parameters, good-quality photos, video overviews
and customer reviews negatively impact sales;
Impossibility of automatization.
In addition to the all of the...
Online shop customer issues
On the other hand, the list of issues related to the buyer’s experience with
small-scale producers is also quite long:
A great deal of unique goods made by small-scale producers have no adequate
descriptions or photos, which hampers the search of the desired product. Be-
sides, many good-quality items of small-scale production cannot be ordered on-
line at all;
Lack of proper “online sales pitch”.
Because of the lack of skillful presentation materials the customer cannot get a
full overview of a product and as a result declines the purchase;
Lack of reliable reviews.
Without any way to confirm the authenticity of reviews posted on custom-made
sites of online stores, customers are unable to form a true-to-life impression
about the product;
Lack of guarantees.
Many online stores offer goods on an upfront fee basis, but not all customers are
ready to risk sending money to an unfamiliar online shop which can turn out to ...
