Hello David,

You can do this and it's a good way to feel the waters both with identifying how it works and how you wish to progress. Many have started selling this way. (I don't know how you would buy with a Yola site free or subscription?)

When you have it comfortable then I suggest that you look at upgrading at your earliest convenience for a couple of reasons and you will feel benefits both for your organisation of your site, the convenience of adding extra facilities and importantly the marketing of your products.

These would typically be a subscription hosting plan so that you can add a custom domain which undoubtedly adds legitimacy to your business in the eyes of your potential customers; the organisation benefits can be things like an online store which really does make life easier and put you up in the ranks of the established online vendors and makes it easier to really be professional in your service. It also allows you to offer your customers basically their choice of payment options and shipping. Finally the marketing can be tuned to your area as well as a broader front and this brings in the locals, the industry interested customers as well as giving you a view of the wider market place.

A free Yola account doesn't prevent you from doing what you wish to but a subscription account gives you far more power when you are ready to go the next step up.
