With the amount of new e-commerce shopping cart websites going up these days, there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to an online solution.
For a website with hundreds or thousands of products a standard shopping cart will be necessary.
This includes paying merchant account fees, credit card fees and processing fees.
But for a website that is selling a few products a good way to get off the ground is to use a simple paypal checkout.
This is by far the least risky way to go in my opinion in terms of monetary investment.
You don't have any of these recurring fees and you only get charged a small percentage after the sale has been made.
It is also a very safe way to go in order to gain the trust of the consumer.
Also, it is a lot less costly involving website development fees.
In fact, all that needs to happen is the consumer goes to your website, sees the price, description and buy now button and clicks it.
The user will be taken off of your website and then taken to a PayPal screen to complete the transaction.
