Running an eCommerce operational is like running a brick and mortar store. You will need to consider certain operational costs in the short and long-term as your business scales. Some costs you may want to consider include tax services that help automate your tax for you such as TaxJar and Vertex. These integrations are easy for us to install for you but their service fees vary anywhere from $19/month-$299+.
There are also VPS server/hosting costs. As your eCommerce store gains popularity and grows, hosting costs will increase as traffic comes to your store. You start off with a base server configuration ($40/month), but as you gain popularity, you will need to consider increasing the performance of your server to maintain the speed of your store and ensure optimal performance.
Also depending on the payment gateway and processor used, you will pay transaction fees and gateway fees.
