Hmm i was toying with the idea of offering merchant hosting the other day. Bt the thing is i have no clue what i would need to offer apart from SSL certs and fraud protection. what would i need to offer to be able to offer merchant hosting?
You pretty much got it, SSL certs throw in some software(ecommerce, tracking, maybe mailing list), and help your customers set their sites up. Might wanna offer merchant accounts too, good money maker, and your customers will thank you for it.
