As a 'side' venture my wife and I are setting up a greetings card company. She does the designing and I am in charge of the rest.
This is very much a kitchen table business to start off with, so we are really looking to limit costs.
I have set the website up - with photos of the products, and put Paypal 'Add to Cart' buttons next to the pictures.
Clicking the button launches into a Paypal shopping cart - so far so good.
I am really asking whether anyone else has experience of using Paypal buttons and shopping carts. I guess all the fees are calculated at the 'overseas' rates because we are not in the US.
At this very early stage I am really looking to limit the ongoing base costs such as monthly fees for terminals etc. That's also why I did the website.
If it flies, we will re-invest into a commercial website as appropriate,
