If you were a consumer, would you put your credit card into a site that was hosted on a free server, and where the only payment option was paypal?

One of the best things about online businesses is that you can start them with a small budget. You still however have to have the bare minimum - particularly in what I suspect is a very competitive market.

And if you're new online and have just picked your market because you believe it to be lucrative, you might want to reconsider if a narrower niche might better serve your needs. If not, you're limited funds might be best spent on a good webmaster.

My first web page was hosted on a free service and paypal. The lack of traffic and my lack of knowledge are the reasons I'm reading this forum.

Sounds like we both have a lot to learn. :^) good luck

look at eBay stores and Yahoo stores as a way to get started.

If you want to see how this is done well then check <snip>... I've bought a few love pieces for my girl .. another thread perhaps ;)

But in general terms, if you are doing business online do it properly ... proper security, proper credit options, good back up CRM .. etc ...

You could piss about until you learn more, but if you want to make money check your competition...

Consider who your target costumer group ae and how they should find you.
Paypal is good to start out, but you would need a reliable isp to host your site for sure or you would have real nightmares, maybe its good to just surf around and see the different websites that do the same business you plan to do.
