Shopping Cart Premium members can set up a shopping cart that links directly from their site to PayPal.
Send an Invoice If your services or product prices vary, you can send customers an invoice from PayPal once purchase price has been established.
Option B - eBay
Consider selling your products or services through eBay. You can accept checks and money orders by postal mail, or you can accept credit cards and checks using PayPal, or eBayís version of PayPal - BillPoint. You can provide links to your site with each item you list for auction. You can also set up a reserve amount - least dollar amount you will accept for your service or product.
Ebay also offers an affiliate program.
Option C - ClickBank
Sign up as a merchant with ClickBank.net. There are some fees involved, plus you have to determine what percentage of each sale that you will allow referring site to earn. Affiliates with ClickBank can choose merchants they like (higher commission percentages do better) and then place links on their sites. There is a setup fee for merchants, but you'll also be providing your site a great deal of exposure. Plus, ClickBank allows you to accept credit cards and other methods of payment. You'll be setting up your own affiliate program!

Option D - Find a Host that provides Shopping Carts
Many hosting packages are set up with shopping carts with a buy feature. Do your homework. Check on setup fees and monthly fees. Make sure itís a reputable company so you arenít worried about your money transactions.
These are just some of options that are available for setting up shop without going broke. I'm sure that there are many more options available - it just takes some net research.
