First off, Just in case you dont know what e-Commerce is..
It’s Electronic commerce, commonly known as (electronic marketing) e-commerce or eCommerce, consists of the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks
Now, a good Basic Start.
Be sure you have a PayPal Account.
Now do a Search for Zen-Cart. Its a Free Basic e-Commerce Program. It’s a PHP Script that has a Step-by-Step on how to set it up.
Once you’ve installed it on your Computer and you have your Hosting and Domain, Upload the whole script to your site and run the Installation Program.
Sign up for the DropShip Program.
The DropShip Program is a Warehouse that lets you sell their Products (They have over 1 million products) at whatever price you want to sell.
When a Customer orders their products from your site, they do all the work. They fill out the paperwork, which will show that its from your company and your name. Then they will dropship direct to your customer.
It’s very simple and easy. You don’t have to stock or shipping products. You don’t have to deal with the Paperwork or anything like that. It’s like having your own warehouse.
Then there you go. Your VERY OWN Store that will get listed on Google and other Search Engine as being a useful site.

NOTE: Even if you don’t do the Dropship and you have your own Products to sell, Zen-Cart is still a good program for that.
It calculates shipping, creates receipts, has built-in shopping cart, links up with paypal for secure payments, select quantities, and many more.
