1. Gather what all you need
When starting an online store, make sure you have all the essential tools that are required. Pick out a company name, the products and services you want to sell and a whole list of the pricing. A domain name is required so that people can use that name to market their products. After that a web host is also needed, it is preferable to look for a web host that offers “cPanel” with fantastico scripts or ensim power tools.
A payment getaway is necessary so that people don’t keep mailing their checks to you. An online payment processor is required that will accept credit cards. A free shopping cart script can be used to for instance osCommerce and zen cart which are quite vital for most online stores. Usually many web hosts have an easy link to install osCommerce.
