Sorry to hear that Rose,
Best of luck with the investigation.Getting your merchant account straightened out and working with a reputable company is priority one. After that, it`s a simple matter of making small steps. You already have the basics in place.
Is your shopping cart working now? Is everything working the way it should? If so, it`s time to just get busy and fine tune your site, get some exposure and develop your skills. The things that would really help you don`t involve money, they just involve time and well....that`s money isn`t it?
So keep us all informed at SuN and if there is something specific that can be looked into there are all kinds of people that can help you out here.
Until then, My best regards and wishes,
