Q. What does it take to sell online?
A. Usually, it takes a shopping cart and a way to process the payments. If you are only selling 1 item, you can have it processed through a third party for a fee. For most websites, a shopping cart is the right answer.
Q. How do I take payments?
A. There are several options regarding how to process the payments, usually credit cards. For businesses that project selling thousands a month at a minimum, a merchant account with the bank of your choice and a "gateway" will be needed. For small businesses or entrepreneurs a shopping cart and account with a third-party to take payments is the low-cost solution.

*SSL - Short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer support SSL, and many Web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:.
