With emerging market and huge competition, lot of people start small businesses to make some extra cash. These people could make big money if they market their small business online. Internet is a huge market to sell products. But due to lack of expert technical skills, most of these people do not know how to set up an online store. Read this article, if you are one of these people and wish to start your own profit making online store completely free, with no expert technical skills required.

If you already have your domain and a hosting, this will be an added advantage. Do not worry if you do not have any of them. You can skip this paragraph if you do not have your own domain and a hosting. Lot of people do not know that with their hosting come free software. If your web hosting has Fantastico feature, this feature provides you with number of different software that can be installed on your website automatically. Some of these software include Blogs, Forums, Support Ticket System, Chat Support and even Online Store. I will recommend you check with your hosting or ask your hosting provider if you have this feature available. It is okay if you do not have that facility, you can still create your online store for free.

WordPress is one of the most famous blogging software. It is free for everyone and millions of people are blogging through WordPress. Well I will not ask you to sell your products through blogs, you will be able to create your online store with this blogging software. Go to and register your own blog. The process is self explanatory and easy to follow.

Once you are ready with your WP blog, there is a very popular WP Plug-in called WP E-Commerce which you will be required to download and install in your blog. Again downloading this plug-in and installing it is all automatic process. You will only need to click on few options to confirm the downloading and installing of your new plug-in. The WP E-Commerce Plug-in will allow you to create number of product pages along with the order form that your customer can fill up. In addition to that this plug-in also provides you with an in built Shopping Cart. And to your delight, everything is completely free. You can find this plug-in in any of the search engines by keyword “wp e-commerce plug-in”.

Once the plug-in is installed, you will need to configure few of the things. Before configuring it, I would recommend you register your merchant account with PayPal. Which is again a free service world wide. After creating an account with PayPal, go to your WP e-Commerce online store and click on “Shop Option”. Go to “Gateway Options” and enter your PayPal information there. You will receive payments of the products you sell in your PayPal account.
