hello, i'm new to ecommerce and would like to get your opinions on what's the best platform to get started with. is it better to start with ebay and amazon or create my own store? i've been doing a lot of research and come to the conclusion that unless i have exclusive resale rights to the products i sell, it's better to sell on ebay/amazon than my own store. the hassles of creating, maintaining, and marketing my own store is not worth the time and effort if people can get the same items somewhere else possibly for cheaper. at least that's my understanding but i would love to hear your opinions if you have legitimate real world experiece about this topic. thanks.
forgot to mention that my goal at the beginning is to minimize risks, maximize my chances of success, and to learn about marketing products online.
