    Ok so I think I need a site. I'm looking to sell and with a website I can list items from my wholesale suppliers catalogue and when I sell I can buy from my supplier then ship items.
    I don't have the money to buy a site.

    Is it a good idea to go to a webhost and pay monthly for a store I can personalise? Lets say to start I want to list upto 1000 items who would be good to go to for a site?

    As im a sole trader am I limited by the amount of websites I have. I ask as im not sure if I should have a site that's dedicated to say gardening stock. And another site dedicated to say smoking stock. Should I have different sites or just one odd stocked web site.

    I don't often make myself to clear and tend to not get many reply's. But help is really needed, and I will learn a lot as I go.

    I'm in the uk.

    Regards

    Matt

    For the most part, I understand what you are saying. Seems like you are confused on webhosting though.
    The webhost, doesn't provide you with a site, they provide you the service of hosting the site on their servers. You will need to set up the site on their servers (design,items,updating store,etc), which will cost you money to do.

    If you want a website, money is a prerequisite. If I misunderstood, I apologize but please be more thorough.

    Guys thank you both. I'm shattered and don't explain well even when I'm on form haha.

    Yes I need a site that is mine to list my stock on. I don't have the money to pay a person to build me a site to my needs. But there seem to be places that host and have sites/ecommerce sites that you pay £20 to say £50 a month for depending on what you want, I suppose they rent them two you. I suppose I just want to know if they are worth it and who offers a good service.

    My children are with there mum tonight so I have had a couple lagers and v tired. So I still am unsure if I have made sense. If not I will try to explain better tomorrow.

    But your replies are appreciated. And although I wouldn't say dumb, it does take me a while for things to sink in.

    Regards again

    Matt
