    Yes I accept what you said – definately not straight forward than it sounds to make money online shops and you could easily lose more than you make.
    Be cautious and take advice from others who can prove they have made money. I looked round a few sites and found some expert advice by searching google on sites like Ecom Turbo Tactic. Good luck and hope you make some cash!

    If customers choose a product they like on my website , does bluehost have something where it allows the customer to purchase , put their information in ? & will bluehost automatically send the products out to the customer ? Or how will that work?

    $13.95 per month = $167.4 annually your “special deal” is more expensive than paying $132 per year.
