Hello, it would seem that you are looking to host the site yourself. There are a range of apps available (Bizar Shop being one that speings to mind immediately), or you could look at and Yahoo!, both of these companies allow you to host on your behalf and you can customise the look and feel, you pay for the number of items in the database and I believe that Credit card facilities are already in place so you would have to negotiate a %. I have heard 0.75% to 1.5% of the value of transaction. More importantly, things to consider are Taxes are handled differently between countries (I am of the understanding that the US has a no-tax on e-business policy - you would have to confirm that). But using Yahoo! or will account for that automatically.
