Getting into e-Commerce

Yesterday was my first real foray into selling products into the world of e-commerce. I set up a merchandise store in CafePress. Although they don’t offer subdomains or custom domains for their hosted stores, they do provide for a high-level customization of the store templates.

The prices of the merchandise are at the high-end, and there’s not much to be made for each order. The store is currently at http://cafepress.com/netundocumented.

I also looked at Shopify.com, which has a companion merchandise site, called Merchify.com. The merchandise costs considerably less at first glance. This looks like a much more sophisticated site, but there’s a monthly fee for maintain a store. This will probably be the solution that I will eventually used; for now, CafePress does not require a monthly fee.

Other e-commerce sites that I am currently looking at is Gumroad. For software sales, I might use a registration service at Digital River, Plimus or FastSpring. I have to read up on the latest reviews.
