There are also a lot of retailers who are going straight online without ever having an actual store, as it well known to be cheaper and easier to manage an online store. Almost every company these days has a website and without one you are likely to be seen as a business so small that customers won't bother with you. Users may think that your business is small and untrustworthy if you do not have a site or the ability to sell your stock online. You can easily come across as a business that is simply not good enough.
