I need it all:
Creating a merchant presence can be a frightening situation. You
have to worry about where you get your hosting, what shopping cart
to select, and what payment gateway to use. In the end you can
spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars and have little to show for
it. If you want to start in ecommerce we feel your
first steps should be soft steps. That's why we've designed
a program to make creating a online store easy and pretty much
turnkey. Just follow these steps:
First off, choose you hosting account. Ecommerce sites should be
Linux driven for ease. So choose any of our Linux based hosting accounts Ultra-LT or
higher and sign up.
Second, you need to choose a shopping cart. Fortunately we've made
the choice easy. If you signed up for a Linux account then the OScommerce
shopping cart, a click and go menu driven cart, is free with your
account (view demo). With it you can enter your items and pricing easily and
allow users to interact with your products. Two down!
Lastly, you need a payment gateway (some method to collect money
when someone buys a product). There are a number of ways to do
this, we suggest the 2checkout service
with is just $49/setup and has no monthly fees (besides normal
transaction fees). It works directly
with our your OScommerce cart so there is no guesswork. Our staff
will be happy to activate 2checkout on your cart at any time.
Believe it or not you are done! [LIST ALL COSTS | SHOW OTHER PAYMENT GATEWAY OPTIONS | OSCOMMERCE DEMO | OSCOMMERCE QUICK START GUIDE]

I just need payment acceptance:
If you are utilizing your own shopping cart there are several ways
to accept internet payments online, some are confusing, some are
very easy to implement. The cheapest solutions are paypal
which costs nothing to use besides a small transaction fee of around
2.5 percent and 2checkout which has a $49 setup fee.
Both solutions will work with and without shopping carts and have
easy documentation for setup. Our staff are also experts at these
systems, so we can help you integrate them into any plan.
Some other payment gateways that are recommended are listed here. All
of these will work automatically with our free OScommerce shopping
cart system. Remember, the first step in any ecommerce solution is
to set yourself up with a website hosting account. We recommend that
you use Linux as it works with more gateways and is infinitely more
