Minimum Start-Up Costs: About $300 for Bare Bones

How much will it cost to set up a shopping cart merchant account and shopping cart software solution? It's like asking how much you want to invest in property or how much you want to pay for a new car. It can be very inexpensive -- use a no-install shopping cart and an integrated package from a leading provider like Yahoo or FreeMerchant and you can get started for about $300. Or you could pay hundreds of thousands for an industrial strength catalog site. Or you could pay somewhere in between. It really depends on how much you have to spend and how much you are willing to invest in your online business.
