I’m looking for a host for an ecommerce site. I’d like to ask a couple questions if I may.
Do you have to use the Miva merchant or can I use another solution? I was looking at Paypal Pro. If I understand correctly I can accept major CC’s and paypal, and let them do all the processing for a nominal fee. This sounds too easy, and way cheap compared to the other solutions I’ve been seeing.
On this forum I saw the http://www.dreamhost97.com/ link and I’m a little confused. If I use this code when signing up, I get $97 off the price when pay? I was going to pre-pay for one year (to avoid the setup fee) and use this code. So during the initial signup I get billed $97 less?
Is there a ‘sitebuilder’ type software here? I noticed a few places had them. That would work better for me as I’m only going to be selling a few (less than 20) things and I want a very simple and easy design. I’m an IT person so the technology is easy, but I’m not much of a programmer/designer.
One of the important things I’m looking for is the ability for the user to submit custom text that will carry over into the order/cart/checkout process. Is this as simple as it sounds?
Thanks for any help or advise anyone can offer. One of the things that I like so far about DH is this forum. Many of my other questions have already been answered by searching it.
