Dear First Duck,

Since you didn't state what type of product you are selling, I
will suggest two Credit Card Merchant Accounts that you may
use--which are very easy to set-up and very low cost.

If you have a tangible item, one that must be shipped to the
customer, you can set-up a "Beseen/iEscrow" Payment account. URL:

Setup is free. You must ship the item using a shipper with
tracking options. You are charged a small transaction fee
on each sale--I think it's 6% on sales $500 or less with $2.95
the minimum.

If you have an intangible item -- a product or service through
the Internet--an ebook, private site, service completed online
etc. and the product or service is low cost ($50.00 or less),
You can set-up a Clickbank payment account: URL:

Setup is $49.95. You are charged a small transaction fee for each sale and a percentage of each sale (right now I think it's 7.5%).

Although the above payment set-ups are more expensive than having
your own Merchant Account (transaction fees are much higher).
They are great for starting out. You'll be able to establish yourself, and decide if you wish to pursue online sales before
having to lock yourself into a long term contract where you are paying $50 - $60/month for software, etc.

Best to you!

Anne K. Dixon
