What I want to see in an online store .. not a flash in the pan..


1st- market research. what you are doing is not market research.

Define all the competitors in the marketplace ( on line that is effectively THE WORLD)

Determine the niche you will fill ( the market is saturated with generic parts providers, another one is not needed )

Research the competitors in that niche, What do they do well, what do they do poorly

Determine if your business model will provide a competitive advantage.

Write a business plan with goals and landmarks.

finally decide if you are willing to put a lot of extra hours in for little to no money.

Realize 80% of such businesses fail

then do it
