I have my website up and running but I want to find some way of adding a client section where clients or family of clients can order from.

For example. After a wedding, mum and dad of the b&g want to order some prints of me, they can select what they want, what size they want and add to cart. They can then pay via credit card or Paypal, which i would then recieve an email to say I had an order. My question is, does anyone know where I actually start?
I feel as I could be missing out on potential sales. If I had this up and running I am sure it would be beneficial.

Of course it would have to be an Australian run place, I would assume. Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks in advance.

Check out the Paypal Merchant Services

Basically you can put a free or cheap shopping cart on your website, and then use Paypal to process the payments. Paypal can take credit card payments as well, without the person needing a Paypal account.

Check the transaction and annual charges on whichever payment solution you choose. Although last time I checked, Paypal seemed reasonable.

You may be onto something there. I spoke to the bank yesterday and they want all kinds of crazy fees. The paypal route looks pretty good. I will look further into it today.

Anyone have any experience with online carts with paypal that they care to share?

Thanks, Lisa
