E-Commerce Solutions

What if you want to sell something on your Web site? Again, tons of ISPs and IPPs are ready to offer you the basics of an e-commerce site, including SSL security, backend databases, credit-card accounts, and even prebuilt “shopping cart” applications to display your products and help your customers choose them and track them. If you find a reputable local or regional IPP that’s willing to help you with your online store, use it if the deal seems right. In this section, I’ll be focusing on a few lower-cost national solutions that might also be interesting.

Yahoo! Store

Yahoo! offers a service called Yahoo! Store (http://store.yahoo.com/), which promises a turnkey online store solution. The service walks you though the process of adding products, using templates, and even getting a merchant account for accepting credit cards. The cost is currently about $50 per month, plus some other fees, such as per-product listing costs. And in certain cases, Yahoo! gets a percentage of your sales when the customers are referred from other Yahoo! pages.
