Workshops to help you gain an insight into how to sell online using third party marketplaces such as eBay or Amazon

Invest Northern Ireland is continuing its series of practical and interactive ICT workshops with the next topic focusing on third party e-marketplaces – how to sell on Amazon, ebay etc.

There will be two sessions each day with delegates having the option to choose between either beginner or advanced sessions.
