e-Commerce

We would be remiss if we didn't address e-commerce or the business of selling on the Internet. If you are interested in selling products from your website, there a few steps to take. First: you will need to find out about the sales tax requirements in your state. To do that, contact your state tax agency. Have you thought about what form of payment you will accept? If you're selling products over the Internet, you had better be set up to accept credit cards. To do that you will need to set up a merchant account. One way to set up a merchant account is by contacting E-Commerce Exchange at www.ecxweb.com. If the products you plan to sell are not your own, you may want to consider obtaining a resellers certificate. A resellers certificate gives you access to wholesalers (which means better prices). Finally, people who shop on the Internet like to know that their credit card information is protected and can't be stolen by others. Your customers would want to know that yours is a secure site. You can secure your website by contacting Veri-sign's Secure Server ID program at http://digitalid.verisign.com/server/index.
