Online payments

I'd like to be able to sell CDs of music I've made online. I've created a system which allows users to choose which tracks they would like to have on their CD and calculates the payment. I'd like some advice on the best way to accept payment. One problem is I'm based in Japan. I looked at Cash On Delivery for sales in Japan but it seems this will cost too much compared to the value of the order (between 1000 to 4000 yen. I wonder about accepting credit card payments. I looked at 2checkout as they will deal with yen but I've seen a lot of negative comments about them after doing an online search.

I'm looking for some way to start in a very small scale way. I know next to nothing about e-commerce. I'm hoping someone can offer some advice.

Hmm have you tried getting a paypal account where you are? I see sellers on ebay and what not all the time from Japan and China and their preferred method of payment tends to be paypal so that might be something you'd look into. I use paypal as my payment processor and I've not had a problem but I'm in the US. They also have api for developers since you've made your own system.

PayPal is definitely the way to go. If you don't know much about e-commerce solutions, PayPal can take care of that for you. It has a number of different ways for you to integrate its merchant tools, from simple "click to buy" buttons to fully-functional shopping cart systems.

RE: Online payments
Yes, I do prefer PayPal payment system.. PayPal is the most popular company to process payments on the Internet. Many small businesses will use PayPal because it is the easiest option.
