Looking for an off the shelf business? Off the shelf businesses can let you set up an online ‘store’ with a range of products and services available to purchase immediately.

With the right product range and marketing advice, you can be running your own online store working from home. But what exactly is an ‘off the shelf’ business and how does it work?

Many of the so called ‘work from home’ opportunities offer ‘off the shelf’ businesses which let you set up your own online store. Drop shipping, e-commerce and affiliate marketing businesses let you create ‘white label’ stores which reward you for referral sales. This means you don’t even need your own products and you don’t need to “sell” to customers personally either. Simply build a store and send traffic.
