With the huge influence of Internet, e-retailing is one of the fastest growing business models.

This single reason calls for the active involvement of partners and business associates like virtual assistants to augment your business growth.

However, as a business owner, it’s better to spend your time doing what you do best - running and growing your company. But that’s not to say the routine tasks and administrative duties aren’t important because they absolutely are.

All you need is the right kind of person to delegate to, a well organized virtual assistant that you can trust to handle complex functions within your business. In fact, a business-grade assistant with experience in e-commerce is the perfect solution to keeping your virtual shelves stocked, managing orders, keeping your customers happy, and so much more.

To get you started, here are nine eCommerce tasks you can outsource to your virtual assistant or virtual assistant team:

1. Virtual Assistant for Inventory Management:
