Advise on starting eshop in CH

Hi everyone, hope everyone is safe and doing good.

Im working citizen in Switzerland(Zurich) have a B working permit and a stable job(waiter).

As a sidejob I would like to try buy from Alibaba/Aliexpress or some connections in Czech Republic some stuff. Not really decided what yet but basic things, not food, alcohol or any electronic stuff that could break. I would run ads on facebook, instagram, maybe sell to some other shops. I dont think its gonna be a big amount of money though. I would set my own website and then list the good there and let people pay with card.

My question am I allowed to? Do I have to register somewhere for it? What about taxes, do i have to have separate bank account, etc.?

Is there any general tips you can give me?

I just want to try the whole process of buy/package/send/sell/earn process and maybe earn some extra money on the side.

Thank you everyone for
Help

Welcome to the forum.

Just use the search forum, there have been many identical questions asked and all the answers are there.
I have read like 15 pages of the forum and it helped me a little bit. Altough stil need to clarify/confirm, since there are a lot of missleading info sometimes.


1. As a 100% worker with permit B(EU citizen) am I allowed to import good straight from china/sell them here on my own website shop?

2. If I get it right if my earnings dont overcome 2300 CHF yearly, I dont need to register inform anyone?

Lets say I have branded product from China, custom packaging, set eshop with domain, instagram and facebook and would like to start selling the product to earn some extra money/for experience. I would be ordering to my house and selling through post

[B]3.What are steps I have to legally have to get done before I start selling if there are any? I dont expect the sales to be 500 x pieces (10CHF each~) first half year.[B]

Thank you for all links/videos help!
