Digital products are perfect to sell in the digital era. Not only because they don’t need a warehouse, a logistic chain in place, or they cannot run out of stock. In this digital era, and at any time when social distancing may be required, having electronically distributed items in your product range can let your business keep the head above water and even grow.
