                      Online store requirements:

                            Option 1: (suitable if you already have a physical store and accept credit

                            If you want your customers to purchase and pay for your items online, you need a merchant account at your bank.
                            If you have an existing brick-and-mortar store, you probably already have such an account.

                            You must then subscribe to a verification service, and a SSL Certificate which allows you to transmit the

                            necessary information to the service for processing. The service will then send back either an approval code or a
                            notice of denial. These services usually have an initial fee as well as a transaction fee.

                            The fees are in addition to the fees charges by your bank for your merchant services account. Depending upon the
                            bank with which you have established your merchant services account, fees can range from 2-5% of the
                            transaction amount. Most banks have a $5 or $10 monthly minimum fee. In addition to your bank's fee, you will
                            pay a fee to the credit card verification service for the benefit of processing you transactions in real-time.

                             Option 2
                             If you have only a few items, you may avoid this process by signing up with PayPal. The service is similar to the
                             above process, but simplified.

                             You need a bank checking account (personal or business, it does not matter which) and an account with PayPal. I
                             can help you with setting up this

                             PayPal charges a low monthly fee and a percentage of sales, but does not require merchant’s account and
                             verification service, as all the credit card processing takes place at PayPal’s website.

                      In what form is your inventory database? ( Circle one)

                      Don’t have any          Word           Excel            Access          SQL             Paper Printout

                             description of each item.


                                       You will need to take the photos and deliver to me
