Ebay Store

One of the best ways to get started in eCommerce is with eBay. E bay allows you to learn the basics and make money at the same time. E bay offers you to simply sell in their listings or to create an eBay store, or prostore.

I recommend that you create an eBay account regardless if you will use their service for your online store. Go ahead and create an eBay, and Paypal account and make a few purchases, or sell a couple of items from around your house to get some feedback.

Online store

SiteBuild It has the best reputation online for creating any type of website. I highly recommend their service if you are going to be serious about making money through this business.

Another good option would be yahoo merchant solutions.
