i have created my website in frontpage, i need to intergrate a shopping cart, payment gateway and merchant account,
everyone is charging so much i cant afford it, which is the cheapest way to have a shopping cart etc to accept online credit cards payments.

jonno54, even with a merchant account from your bank you will still have to wait around 5 working days for payment, that's just the nature of the beast I'm afraid.

If you're looking for something that will integrate into your existing site you might want to look at Mal's eCommerce, both Mal's and osCommerce are free AFAIK.

Mal's eCommerce has a user's help forum, so that's probably your best place to ask about integration questions and get the help you need.

Upload it. Assuming it's a new site-you need it up to integrate-and you don't have users yet. If you do have customers coming to the url already-put a message on the homepage indicating the changes taking place.

Not absolutely necessary-but very helpful for testing and configuration. You can't know if they'll play well together until they're together. Also-you'll need it live to test.

Well the shopping cart is more than likely going to be ASP or PHP? And if your computer is not a server, you will not be able to see some of the include files, which most shopping carts use. Check with your host to see what they support & what they offer.

If you are in the United States & selling over $1,000 a month, you might want to consider a merchant account. Depending on your customers, you might also consider adding Paypal
