    I have an Amazon affiliate website that's ranking better and better so I'm thinking about the possibility of turning the website into an eCommerce store that sells the items directly that I review. If i'm already ranking on the first page for product keywords while providing thorough reviews for the products, I don't see why I shouldn't be selling directly and I think the value of each visitor would increase substantially.

    The difficult part is setting up a payment method and shopping cart ( I don't use a CMS ), along with getting the products to be drop-shipped from the supplier. Anyways, has someone done something similar?

    Be careful, your reviews are effectively sending them to AMAZON, the place that does the converting for you. If you sell directly don't be surprised if your earnings drop. DanDaMan has a thread describing how he sells directly if you're still game.
