Hi Syco,

Yes, you can add e-commerce capabilities to the sites you create. Here is a link to a thread that discusses adding PayPal to your site: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

We also have Google Adsense widgets available to you, so that you can easily add Google Adsense to your site.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

Perhaps some of our users who have e-commerce sites would like to chime in here with some advice for Syco?

PayPal is a widely used system which accepts credit card payments. You will need to work through a third party such as them. This is not a bad thing as clients and customers will feel more confident giving their credit card details through a company that they are familiar with. Essentially you are benefitting from your association with the brand.

Hi Ruth, I am a great fan of Synthasite and already am busy with my 5th site using this great tool.

I just have one huge challenge. I have two websites where I'd each like to sell one product online. The problem is that I'm a South African and Paypal does not support South Africa in receiving monies (although it was created by a South African!). I have found an alternative, actually two - Payfast and Setcom (South Africa's Paypals), though they require me to put PHP coding into my website, which of course I don't have access to.

As I gather, there are quite a few South Africans using Synthasite. Could you please investigate adding either one of these two payment systems?

Another one to consider for worldwide transactions which is linked to Payfast, is Ukash, a UK designed payment system.

Thanks!
