Have you always wanted to sell products or
services online, yet aren't quite sure how?
With Globat.com, you can get everything you
need to have your own store online. Here's
what you'll need to get started:
- Domain name
- Web hosting account
- Shopping cart system
- Payment processing gateway
- Merchant account
