if it was me use PP its cheap and quick - if the site takes off and more people start buying from you you can consider options

Credit Card Options:
1) Google Checkout
2) Use a service like Authorize.net
When items are sold out just take the "buy" button off that item(s).

If you are only selling one item at a time PayPal works great.
But if you need to sell multiple items you will need something more. You should take a look at Paypal Website Payments Pro. It is more like a full-blown merchant account and buyers don't get re-directed to Paypal to complete payment. It is around $30 a month.

Shopify is interesting for a low volume start-up operation ?
Paypal professional tool is quite similar is it not ?

As pdinis said, take a look at hosted solutions like Shopify and Business Catalyst and things like that (Big Commerce?). That offloads the admin headaches and security updates and lets you focus on selling stuff.

Another option would be to look into FoxyCart - you build the catalog the way you like it. They'll provide you the cart and checkout flow which you can make look pretty much any way you'd like.

I would suggest starting off with PayPal and if things pickup look into adding Authorize.net
That is how I got started. I only had 1 product at first.
Now that I have more, I offer both regular checkout with credit card, PayPal, and recently added a Money Order option.
