First you need a host. You can go to a free site like geocities, but the free price comes with a butt load of pop ups & ads. For $10 a month you could go with watersweb. That is the best host I have found. There are cheaper options but the service downright sucks. Be sure the site includes a cart.

Then you need a logo & graphics. You can download Paint shop pro trial & use it for 30 days. www.jasc.com.

Then you need an html editor. You can use http://webpage.vendercom.com/

The $5 one is better for someone who knows web design WELL. It doesn't offer the bells & whistles that can help a newbie out. Yes it had to be paid up front. I have seen that she does take payment in advance though. So if you can't afford it all at once. Pay half this month & half next month.

I use 1and1.com for my hosting at $5/month and they sent a lot of free software when I signed up, including a photo program and a WYSIWYG site editor called NetObjects Fusion. It isn't perfect, but it has worked for me. I use HyenaCart for another $5/mo instead of a built-in cart.

ok i'm glad i found this, i have an idea for a home business, and i went to the waters web shops website, but i'm still not sure. once you purchase your package do they set everything up for you and you just modify it. or do you have to create the website yourself? how do you upload pics and prices and all of your custom stuff? any info would help get me out of the dark? it just sounds complicated, is it?

Yes it cost and the amount varies from one WAHM designer to another.

To load pictures you click a button called "browse", find the picture & upload it. Very simple.

Use the Shop Kit Plus demos.

There are 2 one for the what the customer can see if you use a template from her & the admin demo where you can see how it works. She also has a manual for how to do everything. If you run into snaps along the way she has a forum where you can request help. Pretty quickly too.
