This is my first post to this forum, i have been reading for a while and have learn a lot from everyone who posts.
I'm currently looking to open a store front as a hobby and way to make extra part-time income. The only part of starting out that has me leery is my start-up income and the order processing timeline.
the merchant service i have sought out says it will take 1-2 business days for the money to reach my account. The distributor I've chosen can typically deliver from 3-5days of order.
Because of the start-up budget i have, i will have to wait for the merchant service to deliver the funds to my account before i can continue the process with my distributor. This means that the customer will not receive their package for 5-7 business after they check out at my site.
Typically, would this be considered legitimate to have the customer wait 5-7 business days? also, does anyone have any advice for start-up cash vs juggling the initial ordering process?
Thank you for your time
