I'm unsure if this is the right place to ask this but I want to start a prize competition business in the UK.
Chiefly put, customers will pay for tickets, say limited to 5 for example, to have a chance at winning a prize with a maximum entry of 250 tickets.
There will also be a free postal route entry to keep everything on the legal side, as well as a skill element in the form of an industry specific question, as there are strange stipulations by the Gambling Commission.
My question is, how do I even start? My plan was to advertise on Facebook/Instagram, and link my website via them platforms, where customers can then enter competitions.
Can I use Shopify for a website like this? I feel like I need to parse lots of info to a database or spreadsheet where I can then draw, and I'll need customer info and ascribe ticket numbers etc.
Has anyone ever done anything like this, can give me advice, or possibly direct me to a better subreddit to ask if this question isnt suited here?
