    Hey!

    My names Zach, I'm new to this forum, and I'm so glad its here! This site is great!

    Anyways. to get to the point I posted this thread, I wan't to open up a cosmetic/beauty store online. I'm wondering if it's a good decision to go through a ecommerce website that handles all your stock, payments, and lots of other features for around $25-50 a month.. Or should I go on my own with hosting and advertise?

    Maybe a few of you could also help me get this site running!

    I want to sell no-name and brand name products, I have suppliers already as well. With the no-name products I would love to put my company name on it! And also promote these items through videos on Youtube and that kind of thing.

    Now the bad:

    I'm very tight on my money right now. So I'm not looking on spending more then $500.00 for intial costs to get this thing making money. And I need advise!!

    Can you guys please help!

    Thanks

    I use opencart myself! There are pretty good free themes available to it, and paid ones are extra ordinary :)

    Supports almost all gateways!

    Drop me a PM if you want me to take care of things!
