When it comes to paying for a web-based Internet shopping cart that's hosted remotely as an ASP, there's good news for underfunded start-ups. The ASPs make up the difference, however, on the other end. You'll pay a monthly fee for a web-based shopping cart program that can run to hundreds or even thousands per month, depending on your needs. You'll also be charged a transaction fee by the host, in addition to credit card transaction fees. If quick set-up and managed services are important to you, this could be the way to go. Otherwise, look at other options.
