Short of sharing our opinions, sharing our goods and services (whatever they might be) is the biggest thing we do online these days.  Everybody has something to sell, but how do you get started in the e-commerce world?  I will be covering some of the e-commerce basic right here on this very podcast today.  Hopefully it helps you learn a little more about how to get your own shopping cart set up or how to setup a store though one of the free store providers out there.

    This is an interesting and informative podcast. I know lulu is about self publishing your own book, but I didn’t know you could set up your own storefront. I would also recommend prestashop. It provides a very professional looking online store and it’s free.
