I was wondering if anyone knows of complete ecommerce solutions with very little up front fees and <$50/mo fee. I've used Miva, OsCommerce, and Storefront, but I'm looking for a cost effective solution with very little development fees. Where a client can sell approx 15 products in a nice looking store.
Something similiar to BizAtomic, or a yahoo store, just more graphically appealing. There has to be some other solutions out there.
For only six products, consider Paypal or 2CO's shopping cart. Really, it's all you need.
There are warnings here about Paypal, but we've been using them for years and haven't had problems. I have Paypal, 2CO and a real merchant account, and use any combination of all 3 depending on the solution required.
You can definitely find some solutions for less than $50/month to provide what you are looking for. There are a number of good examples in the various messages in this thread.
There are also some payment gateways that include a shopping cart system bundled with them at no additional cost. That might be an option to consider as well.
