    Selling a Product: Help Please?

    Does anyone have any good resources for a webmaster who wants to sell a product online? I'm making my own products (specialty gay stuff), so i'll be handling everything from production to sales to shipping. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

    You do realize by 'gay' I mean a man who has sex with other men?

    Would you be able to give us an idea of the 'products' you'll be selling we actually have more than just Stud Money that we work on

    We also have toy stores, herbal supplements and a few other things coming down the line we do too so, for all intents and purposes, selling 'physical' products is nothing new to us

    Regards,

    Lee

    hmm...well they are very original products so don't want to really give anything away. they will be marketed and sold the same as any gay novelty product though. We'll just say gay pride housewares for now. I need resources such as the easiest and best way to set up a store front, step by step guides to selling products from home and online, etc.

    I have my first 2 video lines coming out shortly. Vhs and DVD

    I don't know if that would be something that you would want to sell...? :bandana:
    You'll get more with a kind word and a 2 by 4 then you'll get with just a kind word.

    Ah okay in that case...

    Sounds like first and foremost you'll need a shopping cart script for the store front and processing, you might like to head across to http://www.hotscripts.com and check out the cart systems they have there, OSCommerce comes highly recommended.

    For processing, you can pretty much use any of the adult payment processors although, CCBill would be who i recommend first and foremost as they also do a lot of mainstream processing too and the plus being that, from what i recall, as it would be 'mainstream' and not necesarily adult you shouldnt have to pay the $750 registration fees

    So far as guides to selling products from home, to be honet, the only difference you have to what you are doing now is that you will need to have the products shipped and invoiced from home as oppose to a sponsor handling all of that for you, the best advice i can offer atm would be to get a good accounting software package setup, youll need something that can be easily updated for when an order was placed, built and, shipped as well as some other accounting information to make the tax man happy hehe.

    This actually sounds to me at the moment more of a mainstream 'gay' business than adult so with that said, you should check out http://www.webmaster-talk.com the guys over there seem to have a good grasp on business related stuff.

    Hope that helps you out

    Regards,

    These guys are good for store hosting. They have the shopping cart scripts already installed, and a lot of features. Plus, they are really gay friendly, and will work their butts off (they sound like cute butts too) to help ya out. http://www.drgigabytes.com/
