[enter Abstract Body]The current phenomenon is that many homemakers have a side business following their skills and hobbies that aim to help their household financial needs. Previous research has shown that homemakers who are also women entrepreneurs have a significant contribution to family welfare. However, there are difficulties from homemakers in marketing their products and services. The method used in this international community service is socialization related to how to create an e-commerce account and use it as an alternative to selling their products and services. Furthermore, the outcome of this service activity is that homemakers can sell their products and services through e-commerce. According to the survey results on this socialization activity, it is known that the obstacle for homemakers is that education is still low, 65% of them have high school and junior high school education. Also, internet banking and mobile banking application ownership are still small, at 35%.

All participants of the socialization stated that this activity was useful and increased their knowledge. Next to be able to increase their sales turnover is through improvements to the packaging of their products and services to make it more attractive to buyers.
