Free E-Commerce Website Using Google Sites and PayPal


I started with the goal to make a website that has nothing going costs, minimum charges transaction costs low maintenance. The choice of all the features integrated into one website? or can I manage the website and have a third party make financial transactions? Security is the key to answering this question, a third party will be my option. First, I did allocate research in free web hosting solutions, benefits, security and 100% uptime. The list got down some, I test them and decided to Google as part of all fields. The main disadvantage is also an option, it locks down allot of code, making it more difficult to carry out a heap of features and increases safety.

I’ve decided my web, now look at the system. The customer would have to be redirected to a secure website, data passed from my website and shopping cart had to be as low as it can be kidnapped or changed. I watched a lot from cool Java and PHP based shopping carts but in the end, all still send the code that could easily be changed by someone smart enough. PayPal and Google Checkout are the main players, to be in Australia, the Google Checkout exclude so I worked with PayPal.

Google site is very easy to use, first you give your website name, select a template and play around with formatting a bit. Add a picture of the item you want to sell, then put it in the back of your mind for a bit, now head of PayPal.

equip yourself with the PayPal account and change the account type to the Company . PayPal allows you to make pre-made buttons that are attached to your account, and that no amount or number of units depends on the site, it is very safe
