We want to start taking orders online for one of our products. Whats the best way to do this. I've been reading alot about SSL and other things but I can't seem to find a good starting point. I don't think I need anything very complex considering we will only be offering one product.

Thanks

It would depend on the volume of sales that you anticipate and the cost of the item. If you are just selling a single item and you are not sure how many you are going sell Paypal may be a good starting point.

That way you would have no concerns about security or SSL, etc.

The volume would not be large. It would just be one item that is sold to customers that already own our products. Very small scale. Our web host does provide the installation of Zen Cart. Would that be a good set up to use. We currently don't have a shopping cart or anything else set up. So I'm really starting from scratch.

I would suggest that installing a shoppping cart to sell one item may be overkill. All you need is a Paypal "Buy Now" button. You can set this up in ten minutes without a shopping cart, an Internet Merchant's account or a pyment service provider.

All you need is a free Paypal account.

Thanks for your help! Zen Cart did seem to be overkill.
