Do I need anything besides a site through an ecommerce web hosting company to make sales?

Create a Merchant Account to Work With Your Ecommerce Web Hosting Site

Once you select an ecommerce web hosting service and add your products to it, you're ready to start selling products, right? Actually, there is something else you will need to do first. To sell your items successfully, you will need to be able to collect payment.

Your ecommerce web hosting company should seamlessly connect to the payment processors you choose, but you'll need to set up accounts with these companies. Paypal and Google Checkout are the easiest options to use, but you may lose sales if you don't also set up a merchant account with a bank that can process credit card transactions directly.
