Launching Your Own Webstore the Easy Way

Throughout my travels around the blogosphere, I have come across many bloggers with their own online businesses. I see that many of those small business owners, whose businesses are based on websites like Ebay and Etsy, are starting to branch out by launching their own webstores.

My husband and I were in this position a few years ago. Although we kept our Ebay Store open, we were ready to have our own website. The first step for us was to shop around for web hosting services. We needed an ecommerce web hosting package that included it all and was dummy-proof. I wish we had found one like this Standard E-Commerce Solutions package. It is a similar price to what we paid, but it does not charge any transaction fees! That is a huge difference and you really see it once the holidays roll around and your volume more than quadruples. When we looked at the total for our transaction fees, we almost fainted.

I seriously recommend anyone who is looking for a web hosting company, for either business or personal websites, to make an educated decision. It is worth it to spend a little extra time to shop around and find the best package that is right for you. Do not forget to compare features (domain name, business emails, security, credit card processing, etc . . .) because the cheapest is not always the best.
