    First off, I'd advise against having a site already to accept credit cards. the cost is pretty nasty, and unless you know what your scale will be, you may end up spending upwards of 20% on a transaction, depending on what bank, etc.

    Honestly? go with a Garage Band or MySpace acount.

    For payment, set-up a PayPal account to accept payments. Users give you their contact info through that. On a small-time scale, it's about the best way. You do have to pay a transaction fee, as the seller, but they don't charge a monthly fee for the right to accept a credit card, and they have all of the encryption and so forth already resident to their system. Nothing for you to futz around with, and potentially screw up.
  3. Check out www.cdbaby.com

    They will sell your CD's for you. I just checked it out and they charge a one time $35.00 set up fee then they keep $4.00 per cd sold.

    All you have to do is link the page they make for you to your web site.
  4. http://www.ipowerweb.com i use this as my host right now. basic package is like $8/month. You get 10,000mb of space 250gigs transfer/month. Also has PayPal cart thing where you can setup a lil store it looks like (ive never used it, so you might want to do a lil more research or email them. i just looked in my control panel and saw it).
