    I'm starting to make decent money content writing and I've always been thinking about getting a website made for it. I'm used to Wordpress and so on but not sure if I could do this. There's no way I could set up a site with an ordering system, right?

    So I've been thinking about getting a one page site made, with a page with reviews of my service, prices, my email address and so on.

    Anyone know how to go about this?

    Thanks

    Congrats on making money with your writing. You can certainly use Wordpress to set up shop. All you have to do is get a Business PayPal account if you don't have one already, and you'll be able to create order links/buttons for your different offerings. Then you just put the buttons on your site and PayPal does the rest.

    Hmm thanks. Only have a personal account though. Wouldn't mind getting a site where orders are listed etc but that would probably be too difficult.

    They have various wordpress plugins to help with creating a shopping cart system so that if you are offering various services, the user can select which one.

    The thing is, once you start getting a lot of orders, PayPal could limit your account if it's being used for business, so like gmjames suggested, you can/should upgrade your account. You could also just create a new account strictly for business and keep your personal account the way it is.

    Yeah I was worrying about that, but of I stick under the yearly limit I should be ok should I?

    Here's another thing that I'm worried about, I have the wrong date of birth on my PayPal account since I wasn't 18 when I joined. I'm 18 now though, but I'm sure I could get banned or whatever for lying, right?

    So would it be more risky to make a new account than just leave it as it is and hope they don't notice

    Still a bit worried about Paypal, just dont trust them.

    Anyway, someone recommended joomla to me to create a ticket system and so on but I've never used it before. Is it easy to do?
