[TheThinkTank] Selling Bikes Via Online ; Thethinktank Digest, Vol 165, Issue 10

We use Lightspeed as our point of sale technology in the shop. Lightspeed
has a free ecommerce platform that we've been using (and like!). It's free
unless/until you want to allow people to purchase through the site. Setting
up the online payment feature costs more. But for us, we've really just
wanted a place for people to browse what we have so they can see if there
is anything they like before they book an appointment slot. We still have
them come in to test ride the bike, so they pay in person then.
