Is it possible to raise money for eCommerce businesses

It's my understanding that most investors are looking for tech companies with patentable technology. Is it possible to raise money for simple eCommerce platforms / marketplaces?

I built an MVP and then decided to quit my job and launch the product during quarantine–it seemed timely as the suppliers of the marketplace I was targeting were adversely affected by the lockdown. I was able to get some sales (demonstrating market validation), and am now now working on repeating the process, however it is moving considerably more slowly than I anticipated. Note: I'm a one-man team, with a couple of guys (one engineer) and one friend who I contract a tiny amount of work out to. I'm also an engineer.

I'm wondering if it's even worth my time to attempt to fundraise or if I should return to work and continue to bootstrap.
