Hi brando,

First you will need to decide what you are going to sell, a product, your expertise, perhaps some information? Decide how you are going to get your product to people - some people have pdfs that are emailed to customers on payment (this is if they are selling patterns, or online books). Then you need a method of payment, if you have a PayPal account you can add a PayPal button to your site.

If you live in the USA and you run your business from home you could also add the Genbook application which will allow your clients to book appointments on line - you will find Genbook in the widgets folder.

I hope this gives you some ideas to get started.

Hi farah,

If you have a PayPal account, then Google Adsense should be able to pay you for their ads, but you will need to confirm this with them. I am not a Google employee, so would hate to speak on their behalf. However, I know that there are people outside of the USA using Adsense.

Hi Nicole95,

I can tell you how to get paid ads on your page:
Here's how to add Google AdSense using the Widgetbox Gallery:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the Google category
3. Click on the Google AdSense widget
4. Edit your settings to customise the widget and add your account information
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget!

We also have a specific Google AdSense widget:
1. Open the Advertising folder and drag and drop the Adsense widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the link in the dialog box to sign up for an Adsense account
3. Once you've registered your account and customised your ad, copy the advertising code Google provided by Google
4. Paste the code back in the dialogue box on your SynthaSite
5. Click ok!

Please remember that you might not see the ad immediately, it can take a short while for it to be initialised by Google.

Regarding advertising for your business and charging them you would need to seek the advice of a business professional or talk to someone in your field. I'm only qualified to give you advice about building your SynthaSite site :)
