It might help you, LUCKIEST
It depends on what field you are planning to create an e-commerce, if you plan to be in a very competitive category you will be not able to create a sucessful web site for nothing that's for sure.1 of 1 people found this helpful
Avoid people saying build a website and you will make thousand dollars because they are wrong and I bet they never run an e-commerce of their life.
Here the basic: http://www.gspay.com/e-commerce-basics-and-how-to-start-an-e-commerce-business.php
Thanks..! I will take a look at the link you sent me.
We have a hosting system at pagebuzz.com that is simple to use and cheap. At just $10 we provide a working website, shopping cart and processing through our secure network.
It does have limits compared to most hosting companies, but it is essentially a turnkey business that you can just upload your products and begin selling. We don't make any promises about making money, because that is up to you. We just provide the website.
You can get working solutions from the big companies like godaddy and yahoo, but the personal support is not there and they are more expensive and more difficult to use. While we specialize in small businesses and people that don't know how to build a website or where to turn.
You need a domain name, ie yourname.com and a website and a way to collect credit cards. Most of our customers use paypal to collect payments so they can get a retail business online in one day for about $25.

Hello Everyone, I want to start an online store but I am not tech savvy and and very confused as where to start from a technical perspective. I hope some of the e-commerce enterprenuers out there can help/guide me in this process. I need to know where to star and what things I need to consider (i.e. web hosting, web site design, software, e-commerce solutions, online merchant, etc). Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me.
