Are you ready to do business online? There are many things that you need to make sure you have, to ensure flexibility and security for your online store. In this article, we will outlinerepparttar basics of bringing your business online.

Shopping Cart Software There are several different solutions that you should consider for your shopping cart software that we will go over here. First off, you can open a Yahoo Store. This is a good solution for people without much technical knowledge, and doesn't take too much to set up. However, you need a lot of flexibility, you should probably consider another solution. My personal favorite is osCommerce. This is an open source (so its free!) shopping cart solution with a big, very active community to help you out alongrepparttar 138062 way. Your host will need to have PHP and MySQL for osCommerce to function. It is very simple to run an unmodified version of osCommerce. You just download it, upload it to your server, and runrepparttar 138063 web-based install, or if you have Fantastico, you can automatically install it from there. There is a web-based administration backend allowing you to add products to your store and edit configuration settings. There are many contributions that you can install to customize your store, but minimal knowledge of PHP is needed. I think that osCommerce is a great solution for many people. Another popular shopping cart is Miva Merchant Pro. Unlike osCommerce, this one isn't free, but there are hosts who can license it to you at a monthly rate. This can be a very costly solution, but they do have many very happy users ofrepparttar 138064 program. There is a clean GUI (graphical user interface) and a nice administrative backend. Both osCommerce and Miva Merchant Pro require you to find a web host, but with Yahoo Stores you are hosted directly by Yahoo.
